4 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: I love the size. I moved from a 17.3" HP DV7 to this and it is wonderful. It is quiet, light weight, and fast. The case is well built.

Cons: The screen housing and hinge is the only thing I am concerned with. Sometimes it doesn't bother me other days it does. The casing is just really thin.

Other Thoughts: I would whole heartily recommend this product. I was choosing between this or a Thinkpad T430. I chose this because it gave me the best bang for my buck. The other review concerning the cracked casing must of just been one of those days. My came in great shape and has worked well out of the box.

3 out of 5 eggsConcealed damage, flimsy build quality

Pros: Great specs, one of the few 13" compact notebooks with a good discrete video chip for gaming. It also has a matte screen, which is one of my requirements. The 8GB of RAM and 1600x900 screen are nice upgrades from the base model.

Cons: I never powered it on, so I can only speak to its physical properties.

I expected better materials, workmanship, and design from Sony. The lid had a sharp edge that should've been easy to open, but wasn't. That same edge made it uncomfortable to carry, since it would dig into your fingers. The screen bezel looked like something from an entry-level Dell, leaving a lot of plastic on top and bottom to fill in the space around a 16:9 screen. And all the ports were on the right-hand side, which is super-awkward for righties who use mice.

The lid flexed quite a bit, and all the case plastic generally seemed cheap. This might be why my copy had a badly cracked case hidden inside the factory-sealed box.

Maybe the device would feel better-built if I'd sprung for the costly upgrade to the premium carbon fiber body.

Other Thoughts: I ordered this from Newegg because the manufacturer said it would take a month for them to build one and ship it direct. Since the notebook arrived with factory damage, I had to return it for replacement. It went out of stock in the meantime. So my I-need-it-ASAP order took a month to fail. On the upside, now I get to shop for something with better build quality than the Sony.

I'm frustrated, but I can't really fault Newegg here. They paid for return shipping and met their quoted processing times. I do wish I'd known that the item had gone out of stock earlier, if possible.
