I must say, I am impressed. I also purchased the Duo 11 back in Nov with pretty much the same specs: 256GB SSD, 8GB Ram, I7 3rd gen, Win 8 Pro, TPM, etc... Don't get me wrong, the Duo 11 is also great for what it is, but I wanted something with more of a clam shell design. I had a nerdgasm the moment I pulled the Pro 13 out of the box. Although the Pro 13 has a larger screen than the Duo 11, it's thinner and the weight is more evenly distributed which makes it feel much, much lighter than the Duo 11. Then I turned it on... I didn't think there would be much difference between the 4th gen I7 and the PCIe SSD on the Pro 13... I was wrong!! The Pro 13 is super quick and responsive. When I first set it up, there were 40 Window updates including the initial setup process. I also installed McAfee (including running virus scan), Itunes, Icloud Manager, Office 2013 Professional Pro Plus (not pre-installed, already had license prior to purchase and removed home & student trial before installing), Steam (for Civ5), set up file history, maintenance schedules, Vaio update, ran Vaio care, and set up Bitlocker... all in under 4 hours. The only issue I had, which wasn't even really that bad, was the bottom of the unit (towards the rear center) did heat up a bit when I was doing all this. However, when just surfing internet, e-mails, watching videos, using word/excel, etc... the unit stays very cool to the touch. The above updates/installs were all done with power plugged in, so I did not truly test battery life while over-tasking the unit. However, I did unplug afterwards while I casually surfed, read e-mails, and watched a few youtube/netflix videos etc... after about 2 hours, I still had 5 hours and 47 mins of battery life left according to the meter (I did purchase the battery sheet which states it doubles battery life, but I haven't received it yet. This was just on the internal battery alone). I just received this yesterday afternoon, so I will need more time to truly determine, but based on first impressions... it does appear the I7 4th gen Haswell processor and low voltage RAM make a real difference in saving battery life. The display is really nice and the touchscreen is accurate and responsive. Then again, I would expect nothing less from Sony. I did not play long, but I did start up Civ5 with max settings, and it looked fantastic. I doubt I will be playing anything intensive on this device, but it will definitely suffice as far as productivity and light gaming. I did not experience the same touchpad issues mentioned in previous review. There are some slight adjustments getting use to it. I found sometimes it just took learning exactly where to touch it for it to react properly. However, I have not yet had a chance to check out the support link the Sony Rep mentioned, so I plan to check it out to see if it adds any further responsiveness. So far, I am really impressed with the Pro 13. Enough so, that I actually posted a review (which I rarely do). If the unit maintains the integrity it has so far, which Sony products normally do, then I will have to say Sony got it right on this one!!

Amazing, beautiful, and well spec'd. One fatal flaw: The track pad. Reviews had alluded to there being issues with the trackpad, but it's bad... very bad. I disabled 'tap click' preferring the physical click. The trackpad sticks frequently. When it's not sticking, it doesn't register most clicks. Don't buy it until the trackpad issues are fixed. My unit may be a defect, but if the reviewers were having issues one has to wonder... My heart is broken. My last sony had track pad issues too. :(

Worst laptop I,ve ever had

By 

from Monterrey, Mexico

Comments about Sony VAIO Fit 15 Black Laptop Computer:

I bought it in the US but now I live in Mexico. The computer has had lots of problems. Most of them have been resolved with proper patches later released by Sony but they take months to release them. Problems: 1. Wifi: I couldn't connect wirelessly to my router and the signal strenght moved up and down like crazy. You can't be 10 yards away from the router or the signal will die. My sisters' Mac interfers with my computer wireless internet signal. 2. Fan noise and overheating. 3. I was using my computer today and it suddenly turned off. I thought the battery had ran out of power but when I connect it to the AC power source it didn't charge. I checked the charger and it's power cord (as it says in the product support web page) and everything is fine. The charger led is green and the computer small led that is just beside where you connect the AC charger turns orange for a second and then it turns off. I've tried to turn on the computer and it does turn on but suddenly it turns off. My whole family has had Vaio computers as I do but they decided to change them for Macs. I told them I was a huge mistake but now it seems I did the mistake by staying with sony. For almost $2,000 that it cost I expected it t work perfectly since new. Now am one more guinea pig for Sony. I've had enough.

What's up with all the updates!!!!

By 

from Los Angeles , CA

Comments about Sony VAIO Fit 15 Black Laptop Computer:

Fast system! , however right out of the box I have hundreds of updates ; Microsoft updates and Sony Updates. I brought this laptop a week ago and updates are behind , over 1 year. Horrible . Took hours to complete. Can't they just update everything before they shipped the laptop?

Curiously difficult to update.

By 

from Atlanta

Comments about Sony VAIO Fit 15 Black Laptop Computer:

Pros: Fast hard drive, great looking display, not a lot of preloaded software you will never use, battery life, very light. aesthetically very nice. Processor can handle software development, CS6, Dreamweaver, Adobe, Oracle database. Cons: Very loud fan noise when processing updates or doing any substantive work, track pad is gritty and irritated my index finger, driver install is a pain(had to refresh the laptop after Bluetooth stopped working and after I loaded my other software like MS Office and Ultraedit), upgrading to Win 8.1 was painfully difficult; make sure you use the VAIO Update BEFORE you install ANY Microsoft updates, otherwise, prepare to refresh your machine and start over. No discrete video card. Overall: A nice machine which should have some updates preloaded as the first 24 hours you will install a lot of VAIO and MS updates. I would recommend as the machine is great, but the updates were a bear.

rather disappointing

By 

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Sony VAIO Fit 15 Black Laptop Computer:

With accessories, I spent almost $2000 on this baby and for that amount of money, yes, I do expect perfection. The worst thing about this laptop is the touchpad. Every time the laptop is in my lap, the touchpad picks up heat or something from underneath the laptop which causes the cursor to jump all over the screen or to disappear. I checked every hardware setting and have updated all software and BIOS. It is not user error. I also had to send the laptop in for a faulty fan which went really loud and would not turn off or slow down. I mean, really? Sony is supposed to be the best in the market. What's up? The pros: lightweight and small size; long long battery life, super fast with 256 GB SSD and 8 GB RAM though I'd like to see more like 12 GB RAM. Incidentally, when I was without a laptop for the 3 weeks it took Sony to get my laptop repaired and returned to me, I went to a big box electronics store and bought a super low-end laptop for $280. Seriously. And honestly, I think I prefer that one, although it is not as small as the Sony. I'm putting my Vaio up for sale.

Great computer. Windows 8 is awful. Touchpad bad

By 

from NW Pennsylvania

Comments about Sony VAIO Fit 15 Black Laptop Computer:

Fantastic computer. Fast. Ultralight. Peripheral friendly. I have several macbook air computers and a number of fast gaming computers. This laptop is as good as any of them. However, the Windows 8 redesign is terrible. It is impossible to find things since the start button is gone. A download can cure this but then the touchscreen is not available. The touchpad cannot be permanently disabled - this makes typing just about impossible. It is necessary to disable the touchpad for each startup. why there is no feature to permanently disable the touchpad is a key design problem.

Great Design; Great Function

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony VAIO Fit 15 Black Laptop Computer:

Concerning looks, this laptop is fancy and high-class, but the structure is solid and ergonomic. The key lighting is perfect and doesn't distort the printing on them. The touch screen system works fine, and the HD monitor is fantastic. However, you'll have to view it at the proper angle to get the colors perfect. With 12GB of RAM and a hybrid drive, this computer boots around 3 seconds, which includes the resource intensive firewall and antivirius software I have installed. All the programs load fast and there's generally no problem. Windows 8 is kind of lame though.

I love this laptop, it is awesome, functions very good...the only thing I hate in this product is the Windows 8 installed already. What king of trash! I have never tried it before, but if I have a choice I order one without Windows at all or with the 7 or 2003. Amazing company, amazing products, but software is sometimes...no words....
