Great Except for Fan Noise 02/14/2013
Great Specs, boots up fast, stylish. Camera is ok but not great by any means. Battery life is around 4-5 hrs. Touchpad can be a little un-responsive at times but you just need to get used to how it handles. I use this computer mainly for school so i haven't tested any games. Windows 8 isn't too bad just need to play around with it and learn the hotkeys and touchpad gestures.
My main issue with this product is its fan noise. I bought this ultrabook for school use and I am often in quiet enviroments (Library, Class, etc.). The Fan will run loudly even if its not doing anything stressful. It will not be as loud at times and will be almost silent (like i expected it to be at all times being an ultrabook and all) but the fan will decide to speed up even if your just browsing internet or using word. I called Sony cause I thought that this had to be a problem but apparently it just runs like this.
If you dont mind a noisy fan then by all means this is a great buy. However if you need it for classes etc. I would look elsewhere for a quieter computer.
If i somehow find a solution to this fan noise ill edit this but who knows.
