Pros great screen, easy hdmi hook up to larger monitor, mouse or touchpad for easy navigation, comfortable "lit" keyboard, choice of intel processors 3,5, or 7 with more memory the bigger the cpu. Two usb 3.0, and Two usb 2.0 ports.
SD card reader.
Cons Corrupted code, missing unattached registry keys to the original windows 8, have caused me to take this 2nd unit back to Fry's. Malware infested. Assist key brings up bios options to restore that same infected code. Buyer beware.
Summary Sadly at my local Fry's I'm told by several sales associates that these things are flying off the shelves.
To bad most people may never realize they are open to any drive by attack which allows remote user full access to anything you have saved, stored, or would like kept private. Additionally they added code in the UEFI bios that prevents removal of certain areas of the hard drive, encrypted it- and causes most anti-virus software to detect it, but not have the ability to remove it. What a nice present with your 999.99 product. hopefully this is a Fry's only "attack" . But who'd think you'd need a buyer beware before purchasing such a nice looking and well priced point unit. Good luck to you - but make them scan your product first before you buy.
I'm surprised how Sony missed this: if they were a Chinese company, I'd think it was intentional...
