Good value

 

The battery life is claimed to be 7 1/2 hours and that's what I'm getting. It's the first time I've ever gotten the claimed battery life. It's light weight, easy to carry or throw in a backpack. The only complaint I've had is for some reason the...

Screen Malfunction

 

The computer ran great for the 2 hours I was able to use it. Light-weight and low-cost

good for the price

 

I wanted to buy a macbook air, but when I saw the sony, and the price tag, I couldn't resist to try it. It is 400 dollars cheaper, but lacks of backlit keyboard, uni body frame, and although the design is pretty cool and solid, it is not comparable to...

Sony Vaio T Series

 

Bought from Sony.com and got the free PSP Vita with it.

Sleek looking ultrabook with a i5 ivybridge processor. This thing is quick and affordable. Great sound quality. Sony T series has a great feel to it unlike a lot of the other laptops/ultrabooks out there

Low Screen Screen Resolution
