Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Overall looks great an screen size is idea. I thought the internal memory is useful too.
Bad points:
I lost all my work with in the first 6 months and even though Sony offered to look at it and even replaced any damaged parts I still had to pay €413 for someone to retrieve the data. The speed has already slowed down even though it an icore 7. So I think next will be an apple product!! Also not a fan for windows 8 ... Too many things happening simultaneously eg: Skype app and Skype desktop - completely different programs however I had to find out myself!!

David, Chesterfield General home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
General design along with build and quality of materials used. Not quite a Mac but, in all honesty having owned both, this isn't far behind. Screen is excellent which was main point for purchasing this model - Apple no longer produce 17" and pre-owned MacBook Pros are seriously silly money. In retrospect, I do prefer the ''matt'' effect of the Sony anyway.
Performance is excellent, it should be with quad core i7 and dedicated graphics chip set (Radeon). In essence this does exactly what I wanted and more. Can't say fairer than that.
Sony online help was great at helping sort out an initial set-up issue (see bad points).
Bad points:
MaCafee Antivirus pre-loaded. Don't like.
Installed Norton 360 and the machine runs a sweet as a nut. MaCafee really did see to slow some processes down, including start up. But I know some get along with it, it's just not for me.
This was the only set-up issue I had and got first class service from Sony online help to sort it out.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Good screen definition, high spec
Bad points:
Came with Windows 8 preloaded, and it has taken me weeks to get things working that worked with little or no problem in Windows 7 - and I cannot do things with Windows 8 (like playing games in a smaller window) that I could with Windows 7 - the operating system stinks!

andrew, Often on the move

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Good performance - excellent screen.
Bad points:
Support from Sony is absolutely terrible. Instructing me to completely reload the laptop when it is clearly a problem with their download servers just smacks of total incompetence. (Look on your own forums Sony - read what the problems are your customers are actually experiencing).
