    Has anyone pre-ordered it yet? I've just placed an order today, for the 13-inch version in silver with i5, 8GB RAM & 256GB SSD. Got 4-year warranty for £0.01 and free Ethernet-to-wifi adapter and HDMI-to-VGA adapter. Besides, I got 7% student discount & will get further £70 cashback for going through Quidco. I hope it doesn't suffer from the wifi issues Pro 13 had, which made me return it.

  • Issue#478079: Sony - Single key fell off on Sony VAIO Fit 14A Flip PC SVF14N11CXB

    It would seem that I use my left arrow key (which is also the Home key when used with the Fn key) more times than most keys, since it has fallen off. The key mechanism works, just the then rectangle key button cover has fallen off. The key cover will rest on the button, but is loose and keeps falling off. Is there a recommended method of reattaching this so that it doesn't fall off? Are there certain types of recommended glues and techniques or other advice? Thank you for reading this and offering your feedback! Chris ( cmd at kcmo dot net )

    Buenos dias/tardes tengan todos ustedes. Les cuento que en Septiembre de 2015 adquiri un equipo Vaio Fit 11a Flip (SVF11N11CLB), el cual a los 3 dias de uso empezo a presentar problemas en el touchscreen de la pantalla led, tales como toques fantasma al azar, movimiento del puntero del mouse involuntarios y apertura de software sin querer hacerlo. Pues total que decidi comunicarme con el numero de soporte de Sony, en el cual me fueron guiando paso a paso sobre una posible solucion, tales como usar la aplicacion de calibracion de pantalla, la actualizacion de software y por ultimo la restauracion de fabrica del equipo, las cuales no fueron de ninguna eficacia en mi caso. 6 meses despues decido volver a hacer la llamada pero esta vez para enviar el equipo a reparacion, el cual se recibe el dia 15 de Marzo del año en curso por en el taller de reparacion de sony en Guadalajara, Jalisco, lo cual toma un lapso de 3 meses para llevarse a cabo la reparacion por la falta de comp

  • Issue#7357: Sony - VAIO flip 15 SSD boot problem

    Hello everybody.I upgraded my Sony Vaio flip 15 to Windows 10 and I replaced my SSHD with an SSD (Kingston V300 240GB). Most of the times when I restart my PC it takes up to 50" at the "Welcome" screen. (note that sometimes it takes only 2-3", a normal value for an SSD).I enabled the Verbose messages in the registry to view what it takes so long to load and I found that it is stuck at the "preparing Windows" message.I tried reinstalling windows several times, disable many devices and services/startup apps one after the other until something comes up but nothing seems to help.Also I turned off and on the "quick startup" option under power settings to see if it makes any difference when I shut down the machine instead of doing a restart but still the same.

  • Issue#59655: Sony - Vaio Fit 15e won't charge & battery dead

    Hi all,I have a Vaio Fit 15e (bought in Sept 2013) and it's basically been dead since the battery last ran out.  I noticed that although the power pack light was on the charging indicator on the laptop has stopped lighting up and now the battery has gone it doesn't power up at all any more.  I have bought a replacement battery - no luckI've done the whole take the battery out and hold the power button before reconnecting everything - no luckI've tried powering up without the battery in - no luck I have a feeling that something more major is going on and frankly I'm not over the moon about the fact this laptop isn't very old at all.  Not sure what I'm expecting to get from this post but just wondered if anyone has had a similar issue and if they can offer any further wisdom on things I can try before I give up and replace it (which I REALLY don't want to do...)

  • Issue#75561: Sony - Weird Vaio laptop keyboard issue

    My wife's SVP13215PXB Vaio laptop on Windows 10 has developed a very odd fault. The cursor keys and the delete keys have started working intermittently after a few months of working totally fine after the upgrade to Windows 10. So, on the Win 10 login screen all keys work fine. But when in Windows the cursor and delete keys only work when holding down the shift key. I thought it might be the scroll or num lock stuck on but I've toggled Fn+Del but that doesn't seem to do anything. I've uninstalled the keyboard driver a few times and have updated Windows and everything in the Vaio Care app.Any ideas greatly appreciated!CheersSimon
