Bad points:
I had to reinstall windows 8 twice in 9 days, phoned store, would not accept return as was a software issue, as well as a couple of other small issues - Sony - NEVER AGAIN - Everyone is always saying that DELL is unreliable, I had a DELL before this wish I had stuck with them, I will definitely not buy another SONY product - Over Priced, Over Rated, Waste Of Money

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
None, I do not believe that it is any better than my Compaq Presario V6000, which is about 3 years old.
Bad points:
I believe that some of the issues are associated with the Windows 8 operating system and I'll need to adapt, however :-
The touchpad is very sensitive, go close to it and thing's just happen (back to Windows / shrink or enlarge the script, etc etc ). I'm starting to get used to it but I do NOT like or enjoy it.
Seriously wish that I had not bought it !!!.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Attractive build. Good responsive keyboard. Excellent performance for general day to day usage. Also pleasantly surprised by how well the integrated hd4000 graphics performs on mid level gaming. Bluetooth works well and quickly. USB 3 makes huge difference in data transfer rates (with usb3 enabled hardware), and can charge usb devices from the usb3 socket when the laptop is switched off. Sony don't load reams of bloat ware and extraneous software on the laptop, but do include very useful programs like Sony Assist etc. Also, although a bit gimmicky I do like the webcam gesture control function, which allows you to scroll through pages, scan up and down and even control the volume of music/video by simple hand gestures. In summary, for a mid priced laptop you get a lot of bang for your buck. This is a well built good looking laptop that will keep a general user happy. The integrated graphics will play most games on mid settings...enough to keep non dedicated gamers smiling as they play crisis 2 etc. It also is fairly future proof as the 3rd generation i5 processor is still current, and the hd4000 will play the new 4k definition video when it becomes main stream.
Bad points:
Not many. The laptop is very sleek and curved, which Sony say makes it easy to carry. I have very large hands and actually find it a bit too hard to grasp firmly. The all in one touchpad with gesture control and no click buttons takes some getting used to..in fact I ended up using an external mouse. Although the laptop comes with 3rd generation i5 processor and generous hard drive, it only ships with 4gb ram albeit the latest ddr3 1600mhz chip. It did not cost me much to install a second stick of ram, but as a late 2012 model it would have been nice to start with 8gb at purchase, as a lot of cheaper laptops do.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I'm very pleased with the machine now. It's quick and reliable.
Bad points:
Sadly the hard disk had to be replaced. When I initially contacted Sony with the issue I was fobbed off. When I again contacted them all was fixed within a week.
