        Love the Sony SVE17127CXB Notebook computer! Sleek design and crisp HD graphics. Backlit keyboard is a nice touch. Not particularly thrilled with Windows 8; would have preferred Windows 7, but I'm getting used to it. As noted in another review, the finish does leave fingerprints, but I can live with that. This laptop will be used as a desktop replacement for about six months of the year when we are at our vacation home. This is my third Sony laptop and I would not have anything else. It replaces an older Sony Vaio and is much faster, with nicer features, and has more storage space at almost half the price of the older model! I have a Sony desktop as well, so, obviously, Sony is my preferred brand of computers. I've had Sony products for a long time and they have provided many years of service with no problems.

          I bought one of these laptops for my wife at Christmas. We've been playing with it, so at her insistance, I 'had' to get one of my own. We love both of them. I use mine for business, photo editing, etc. She surfs and plays games. The large screen is great. The downside is that I have to learn Windows 8, but that is not a negative for the laptop itself. This is an excellent buy.

          Bought this to upgrade my cheap Toshiba, mainly to process photos through DXO. Where my old laptop with 3GB RAM struggled, this one shines. Processing of files is easily 15x faster. The large display is really good and resolution is nice. Takes my memory stick so that is a plus. Does everything I need- photos, internet, watching movies on Netflix.

            I bought this laptop for my work as an educator as well as for my night study at the university. So far i have been very impressed and it also have managed to impress my friends. The keyboard is very comfortable especially also having the luxury of numpad which helps me to accomplish my work faster when dealing with numbers. The big screen helps by having multiple windows open at the same time (I am used to triple-screen setup fo my desktop) while still being able to see things clearly. Definitely satisfied and fulfilled my expectations so far.

              I have had some usb 3.0 issues with this unit. However, I do believe the issue is one the other end of the usb 3.0 cable.

              Windows 8 is taking awhile to get used to.

              The laptop itself is great.

                Not so great: nothing so far other than Windows 8 takes a bit getting used to

                I am a loyal vaio fan. This notebook is awesome. Now I am used to Windows 8. Only problem not giving it 5 stars is the case. It shows and retains fingerprints and are impossible to remove. What a mess I can always see the fingerprints. Ok maybe I'm a little obcessive but I don't like it.
