Jury still out 09/25/2012
This review is from: Sony VAIO SVT13118FXS 13.3-inch Ultrabook
lightweight, speedy, handles many applications at once like a champ. I really like this laptop when it's working.
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.
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 :/
