Rated 5 out of 5 by Dmitri Excellent machine
I'm very happy with this laptop. Windows 8 was easy to deal with. Normally, I spend a day to set up a new laptop with all the dev tools I need. This one took 3 hours. SQL Server 2012 setup took 15 minutes! Solid state drive is the way to go.
I'm also very thankful to Sony for the option to turn off the touchpad. That was always a problem for me when I needed to type a lot.
The 15" screen is actually much larger than your typical 15".
Overall - two thumbs up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rajath very good
Hey sony!! i am using this machine from 1 month+ and its a great machine. The updates took me just around 3 hrs which is very quick when compared to the others. Only problem I found during the updates is for the touch pad. The pinch zoom, 2 finger tap and other multi finger option do not work after the update, I had to switch back to the older update for getting back the functions. Please fix it Sony......
I gave it a 5 star rating despite for this update!!!! just a small hiccup ... but that's really ok...

Rated 3 out of 5 by Raytheone Terrible audio system!
The volume of the speakers is so low they are basically unusable. Tech support was no help at all. Basically brushed me off. If I wasn't in the middle of Iraq, I would send it back. We were testing this out for purchase for others in the company. Looks like we will pass and go back to Dell.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PainfulUpdate Updates are painful and manual
I have had my new laptop for a week now and I'm experiencing my first updates. When you have a lot of updates to do, it stinks, but you click the button and find something to do for an hour or so while it updates. With this Sony Vaio, I get to sit here and tell it which country I'm in for each and every update, otherwise it will just sit there. This is my first Sony computer and probably my last.
