4 out of 5 eggsSans Win8 - great laptop

Pros: Downgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate x64. The LED monitor is beautiful. Back-lighted keyboard has a nice feel. Speakers have a decent quality. Radeon card played streaming 1080p from local network location through wifi (VLC aprx 6mbps) without any issues, playing LotR trilogy to extended monitor (HDMI) as test. no hiccups, system became warm but cooling was adequate to maintian performance considering the 8 hours+ of time spent on the machine. Battery life aprx 6 hours with standard word processing.

Cons: the 5400rpm native hard drive with win8 blows mighty hard for the enthusiastic pc user. I replaced it for an Intel ssd 180GB that was on sale. The other poster is right, Sony does not provide win7 drivers however all the hardware is easily found from their vendor (Realtek, Intel, Broadcom, etc) so if you do a little hunting Win7 is an easy install. The touchpad isn't as sensitive as most I've used and the BIOS isn't that user friendly. because of the touchpad and the 5400rpm drive it loses an egg.

Other Thoughts: Sony will not provide support for Win7. Seems the commercial world is "ALL SYSTEMS GO FOR WINDOWS 8!" without checking with the consumers to see if it is viable as a working system. Sony's system wasn't the easiest to learn in terms of booting bios and changing settings to boot from disc but i knew it was going to be a project going into it.

Got it on sale for $649, threw an ssd and 4gb's of RAM too. The thing hauls. the i5 on Ivy will last for the next few years and I have a win8 key for when M$ get's their act together.

4/5 - recommended buy

1 out of 5 eggssave your money

Pros: cheap

Cons: Beware sony laptops, they provide NO drivers for any other operating systems, unlike any real computer manufacturer. Since I just bought one that came with win8 and foolishly thought that I could install win7 (so I had a functional OS), I now have a useless tablet computer--not my intention. No drivers for win7. They aren't even shy about it on their "support" site--NO drivers.

Other Thoughts: sony should stay with making televisions, they obviously don't understand people who want to use computers to do work
