Great technology


My first experience with this product was horrible. Out of the box the touch screen didn't work which was extremely frustrating. I have to take it back to the store the next day and get a whole new one. The second one works great. It was pretty pricey...

Touch screen and fast processor

The keyboard is protected when the laptop is turned into a tablet which is not the same for the Lenovo

Had to upgrade to Windows 8.1 myself. It came with Windows 8. It also lacks a numeric keypad

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


First Sony is leaving the laptop market. So no future support. The WiFi is horrendous. I have three other Sony laptops that work great. It's even on their website and all over internet that this model and several other of the Fit and Flip have Wifi...

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
