fun to use, easy, versatile laptop/tablet


Looking to replace my ten-year-old HP laptop, I was interested in a "reversible" laptop/tablet device. Took it to a conference second week and found it easy to take notes on, check email & Facebook, light enough to carry all day with ease. When it lost...

Windows 8 is easy to get used to, easy to use. Love the quick switch from laptop to tablet. Lightweight. Travels well

Funny glitch with the wireless driver, but an easy fix and no problem since

Concept is good but unstable operationally


The concept of converting to a tablet was great, especially for business presentation to a client. Unfortunately, for the price of the laptop, I expected a stable laptop. The mouse seemed to just have a mind of it's own, it will either disappear or...

Portability, conversion to touchpad, graphics

Mouse pointer have a mind of its own, HDMI don't work, and close out application on its own

They need to improve performance and Support


The performance was not very fast despite the solid state drive. Also the literature for start-up indicated that you need 14GB device (UBS) to create recovery media. I purchased a 16 GB SanDisk memory stick and the computer would not create the...

Screen clarity is very good

Technical literature has error. Recovery media UBS must be Sony and must be 32GB not 16MB

Great Convertible Laptop/Tablet


This convertible laptop is the best of both worlds. Solid keyboard for when you need to type a lot and light tablet when you want to play, surf the web, or watch a movie. Battery like is great because of the solid state HDD. The backlit keyboard is an...

Slim, light, fast and backlit keyboard

Dim display, but I need to investigate driver solution with Sony

Love it.


I love the machine although there is some learning involved with the touch screen and windows 8. Moving from start screen to the application screen is annoying and sometimes difficult. (this is mostly windows 8 fault) not the Sony's.When I am in an...

best all around


after 8 years of owning a vaio sz480, I finally found this vaio flip worthy enough of a replacement for the sz. I really like the 4th gen i5, battery life, and almost never hear the fan. Like others have said, just make sure to run the vaio updates...
