This review is from: Sony VAIO SVT13118FXS 13.3-inch Ultrabook
Pros: lightweight, speedy, handles many applications at once like a champ. I really like this laptop when it's working.
Cons: Battery life lower than marketed but still not too bad. System crashes randomly with "Operating System Not Found" message .. luckily it works after restarting a few times .. Sending back to Newegg for return (RMA) and hoping a new one will be better.
Other Thoughts: Didn't send in for the rebate so I lost out on that :( For now, giving 2 stars because of the inconvenience of sending it back. Without the intermittent crashing this would easily be a 4-5 star review. This could be a motherboard or hard drive problem (as in it may go away with another hard drive that's not solid state or with a motherboard bios update) but I shouldn't have to debug a brand new computer! Didn't find new drivers on the sony support site for the motherboard of this model (http://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=SVT13118FXS). Will update this review when I get the RMA back from Newegg :/READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: A little slow and loud at times. Some of that could be my setup ECS motherboard with Linux OS.
Other Thoughts: Very happy with this purchase. Haven't burned cd/dvds yet but I'm confident it should work for that.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked like a champ. Allowed me to use an older PSU with a newer motherboard.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Other Thoughts: Haven't owned it that long so don't know how long will work.READ FULL REVIEW
