"Great machine. Best of 12 machines I have owned."4.5 starson by MikonCons
Pros: FAR less costly than a Mac. Very fast with the i7 Intel quad processor when running multiple real-time streaming data programs.
High quality of customer service
HDMI and double monitor features a plus.
Cons: After one month of use, I had an intermittent touchpad problem. Sony support went through troubleshooting with me in real time on the phone. Ultimately replaced the touchpad AND the motherboard... it was an interface chip problem to the touchpad.
Summary: Great machine for fast and trouble-free multitasking.As of 8/6/12, the machine is still performing flawlessly... and fast.
Well built machine, good for traveling.
Cost approximately HALF of an equivalent Mac performance.
Had since March 2011... still running strong.
Will definitely buy Sony again.
