This review is from: SONY VAIO E Series SVE1512GCXW Notebook Intel Core i5 3210M (2.50GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 7650M 15.5" Windows 8 64-bit
Pros: Responsiveness, Ram, CPU, GPU, big bright screen, speakers.
Cons: GPU is good but of course isn't the best out there. The standard battery isn't too good, it lasts about 2.3 hours on high performance and maybe 3.0 to 3.2 hours on balanced but it depends on what your doing.
Other Thoughts: I plan to get a better battery later. The laptop handles multitasking well and i'm able to run Photoshop on it. When i'm in Photoshop it performs nicely but the grey background flashes occasionally due to the GPU and if you have a second screen hooked up it starts to be really annoying but still works. W8 is a good OS in my opinion I haven't had issues with it yet. I use the desktop most of the time not metro but its still nice to have. I think of it as having the best of both worlds. I am also planning to install an ssd into it to make it even faster and max the ram to 8gb. Overall i would give this laptop as a recommendation to anyone looking for a computer that is pretty much up to par with a apple laptop and costs half the price.
