worth the price
4 Star Review   By xyao on Sony - Official Store - Sep 28, 2013   

Pros: Thin, light, and good-looking. High quality sound system. Comfortable typing experience. Easy to change hard drive (all you need to do is remove the bottom board). Cons: 1. The screen is not a good quality screen (you can see the straight lines if you look carefully, but it is just not very apparent, I can live with it) 2. The backlit keyboard is dazzling when turned on. 3. Good for win 8; but I installed a win 7, then I cannot find any driver on the official site. I use a auto-install-driver software to do it. And the keyboard backlit is supposed to be turned off by Control Center, but I cannot find the win 7 driver for it either. I think it just worth the price, I would recommend it if you want to use win 8. The screen is just a little weakness, but some people may not even notice.

So Far So Good

The keyboard is OK-doesn't seem like the light is "on" underneath all the way across-like there are some little lights out here and there. Might get that checked out. All in all, it's a nice laptop- :) Have had for a week, no problems so far.

1 Star Review   By TomBoise on Sony - Official Store - Jul 26, 2013   

I bought this Laptop about 10 months ago. (SVE14AE13L from BestBuy) I read the reviews, which were mostly good. Personally I've had nothing but problems with it. Windows 8 froze several times and then died altogether. System wouldn't go past the initial "VAIO" screen prior to boot up. Both my IT guys said Windows 8 was awful so we've switched to Windows 7. The touch pad is horrible! Almost to the point where you can't use it. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, mouse jumps around, etc. When I'm typing on the keypad pressure on the section beneath the keys from my palms makes the cursor jump around the screen. Really sucks when you type half the time by looking at the keys. Now the aluminum back plate for the screen has delaminated and every time I shut the computer the screen breaks a little more. I called Tech Support up and (you'll love this!) they told me to drop it off at a UPS Store and tell them it was a return to Sony. Don't even bother to box it up! I think I'll wipe the hard drive clean before I do this. I can just image what the kid behind the counter at the UPS store could do with my computer and some free time. To sum it up...Not happy!
