Good points:
It works ?
Bad points:
it is the hardest laptop ever to re-format and re-install to factory settings the keyboard feels like it will break if I press to hard, The SD card slot is too tight and the cards have to be pulled out with Pliers note the Blu-Ray drive is not a writer as I was told in the store, and after having a problem with the hard drive it was removed and blanked then re-install but all my personal data was still there so selling it would be a problem had to contact help when the machine locked up for 17 hours only to be told sorry no idea return it to the shop for another replacement as it is now working after almost 2 weeks of pain i cannot return it for a full refund or I would sorry Sony not good enough must try harder.

Good points:
performance is fantastic! so quick to open up and once you get used to windows 8 it is so easy to use, looks good, doesn't get hot like other laptops
Bad points:
has Mcafee installed as standard which is an absolute nightmare to remove!! I still haven't managed to get it off but I have found that avast works while it is still installed, I tried to get Kaspersky but I found it impossible to work alongside the Mcafee
