              I bought this Vaio in November 2013. I have this notebook for only five months and I already have SO MANY PROBLEMS. First problem: with just a month of use the computer did not recognize the operating system showing the message "System not found". I managed to find a way to make the computer to recognize the system. Second problem: the wifi, this antenna is disconnecting with the wifi sign of the house (all other computers work normally. This happen every 15-20 min. Third problem: I do not know what is happening with the computer but sometimes I have to restart the computer so that I can reduce the brightness of the screen or simply to trigger the CAPSLOCK key. Several times the computer does not recognize this command to decrease or increase the brightness of the screen. I won't buy a SONYVAIO EVER AGAIN.

              I got this computer to replace a 17" i-7 Vaio that I use for graphics and design work, the screen being so large that I rarely need to plug in an external monitor. The one drawback of that laptop - it was very heavy. This 15E i-7 notebook is a dream. Not only is it significantly faster, but the slight difference in the screen size is barely noticeable. Best of all it is much lighter - important if you're carrying it around everywhere. The Sony's improved backlit keyboard has great action. This feature and the HDMI-out make this Sony a great choice over other similar brands.

                I'm so incredibly disappointed. I love Sony Vaios and have had two in the past. This one is a complete mess, and I'm stuck with it for a few years! The touchpad lacks a left/right click button at the bottom, and it makes navigating (cutting/pasting/scrolling)a nightmare. It's also slower than my old Vaio! The spacebar is difficult to press. I've contacted B&H about this twice and only received a standard "Sorry" reply once. I'm wholly disappointed with the computer and service.

                  Fast shipment, everything as expected.
                  Touchpad has this wobbly strange play, there are no left/right buttons on touchpad, need time to get used to it. Expected faster action from an i7 notebook. Overall flimsy feeling to the body.

                      Like everything about this laptop except the mousepad, which is kind of twitchy. Unless I'm missing something the design is to move the mouse with your right hand and click with your left, which is reversible. Problem is it seems to change its mind about where left is. I find clicking anywhere other than the far left can cause it to thing it's right clicking, meaning left click versus right click on a two click mouse. This is annoying. So, I bought a plug in USB mouse to solve that. I would have given the unit 5 stars otherwise, fast, smooth, quiet, slim, good battery life, and oh yeah - I LOVE Windows 7 versus Windows 8.

                        I have 2 VAIO laptops I use for work and home that I'm extremely happy with. My son needed a new computer and I wanted to match what I already had...and this computer blows mine away. Thinner, lighter, faster processor and more RAM than mine were delievered wtih. It came with Win7 which is a plus for us; but came with a Win8 Pro set of DVDs should you want to move to Win8. Good price. On time delivery. Life is good.
