Incredible Value I am a software developer and was looking for a Windows 8 touchscreen laptop on which to do some Windows 8 development. I was additionally looking to replace my Asus UL30VT as my occasional travel laptop. I am an amateur photographer, so I also wanted something with a nice screen that could do at least full HD at 1920 x 1080. This last consideration narrowed the field quite a bit.After comparing many models and finally ordering and receiving this Sony I can state that I couldn’t be happier. This is such a beautiful machine and such an incredible value for the price. While Windows 8 is still growing on me, the machine itself is wonderful. First off, is the screen. Text and photos look gorgeous. There is no substitute for pixel density when rendering text and this machine renders text and web pages beautifully. I loaded up my Nikon photo software to review a number of photos from my D90 and they looked wonderful. I held out for a 1080p screen because I also like to…

Great laptop for a college student. I am a student going into college in the fall of 2013 and had been searching for a laptop for a very long time. After months of searching for a laptop that had what I needed AND what I wanted, I finally found the Sony VAIO.Pros:-15.5″ is a great screen size; big enough to watch movies or play games if you want, yet small enough to be portable.-Quick turn-on time due to the solid state drive. The laptop boots up within 3 seconds at the most.-The screen resolution is solid. HD movies look beautiful and small words are relatively easy to read.-The touch screen is accurate and smooth and makes Windows 8 easier to use-600 GB of storage space is more than enough for most people-I love that this laptop comes with an HDMI port. I can hook it up to any TV and the picture is very clear.-The backlit keyboard is useful for using the laptop in the dark. I’m surprised at how many laptops these days do not have backlit keyboards…
