Nice Laptop


I really enjoy the multi-functionality of this laptop but there is a downside related to issues with wireless connection issues. These issues were experienced after purchasing the system but with a little tweaking to the wireless N adapter I have not...

Great Laptop for an Educator.


All in all, this is a good value for a new laptop. I would recommend this to anyone willing to part with a CD/DVD drive. I really like the swivel screen/tablet feature and touchscreen, it adds functionality that most laptops don't have. Long battery...

Easy to set up, connects to wi-fi seemlessly, good price

Miss the DVD drive. Installing programs by CD needs external drive, which is a hassle

Do not buy

Great PC to move back to


I moved back to a PC from a MAC after my MAC had issues. Since I use this for personal and business reasons I felt the need to move back to a PC. I love the 1TB of space and windows 8.1 even though it took me a while to get it all set up the way I...

Love the touchscreen

Setting it up takes a while

This is just junk.


I got this as a replacement laptop after my other Sony met an early death. I have had it for a week, and have had nothing but issues. It freezes, and when you google it, the black screen of death is a known issue. I will yet again take it back...

I'll let you know as soon as it works

Constantly freezes, black screen of death which Best Buy is aware of from me but still sells. Bad bad customer service

Too fragile for use


I purchased this laptop after looking at several different 2-in-1 models. Performance was good, but after 4 days the screen cracked starting at the windows key in the bottom center of the screen. Took it in to be repaired and the estimate to fix the...

Good performance as long as it works
