-Difficult to get your head round all the new features; sometimes they're complicated when the could be easily simplistic. -Freezes a lot and doesn't carry out tasks at points. -The navigating is not good without a mouse

Sony VAIO E15 SVE1513P1EW

 

Processing speed is great, compared to what I'm used to anyway. Love the look of the laptop, modern and sleek.

The touch pad seems a little temperamental and on occasion unresponsive. Not sure if that's just a fault with just my laptop. It seems good value for money, although I feel I did pay more for the fact it was white.
