Haaah -- mine also has the Radeon 7650M (the same as teh Core i7 models!) Scores 6.7 for both Aero and Gaming on WEI! I am starting to really love this Lappy ... Awaiting good deals on a 128 or 256GB SSD as I think the bottleneck is the Slow Disk...
I Love Windows 8 BTW -- it's really an acquired taste and getting used to thingy.. Once you get the true philosophy and design behind Windows 8 -- You'll love it -- even with just the mouse or touchpad onthe Lappy!
This actually prompted me to finally update my Living Room HTPC (hooked up to a 70 inch Aqous) -- and everyone in the family loves it more than Windows 7! I bought the Logitech Windows 8 Touchpad to vastly improve the experience --- and everyone agrees we now have an even better Living Room Smart TV OS!
Linky to Logitech Touchpad (Got it for $39.99 last year) but simialr Lenovo Win8 Pads are also available for $25 when on sale: http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Re...B0093H4WT6
Back to this amazing Sony Budget Full HD Lappy...
I have ordered a backlit friendly KeyBoard Cover/Skin to give it added protection
I plan to dual boot this with Windows 7.. I tried Windows 7 already using an old Notebook SATA disk from a broken Lappy and Windows 7 runs awesome...! Sony provides Windows 7 Drivers too....!
I need Windows 7 as lots of Tools at Work (VPN, ESXi 5 VI Client for my Home ESXi Lab does not work yet under Windows 8...)
I am also exploring just having my Windows 7 environment as a VM (Hyper-V) but I thought this is only available under Windows 8 Pro -- this correct/true?
