So I finally got my Vaio Flip! (14A / i5 / 8 / 128) As Sony UK/Europe have essentially shut down their computer department overnight due to the sale (Any US people might want to look out for that, there was no warning on their website about this) I ended up having to get a refurbished model as you can no longer buy new models directly unless you're lucky enough to live near one of the maybe three Sony stores left in the country (and they have them in stock, which mine doesn't). And for some reason, as of midnight one night they simply stopped selling the stylus. It was there one hour and gone the next and they're not willing to sell me one so had to import from the US! Madness... So yeah, lots of bad experiences before I even got the thing... Thankfully, for a refurbished model it looks as new, no scratches or dings, it looks gorgeous. Good things: Fast, great screen. Bad things: Battery was dead on arrival so had to charge it before it would even switch on! Came with Windows 8 so had to run about 90 updates before then updating to Windows 8.1 and running more updates, couldn't start using it for almost five hours after getting it. There's a place in the box where a stylus would have gone so apparently I should have had a stylus with it but they didn't check it and won't find one for me from the stock that vanished the other week. Was having graphics card issues with Photoshop - I installed an update and it seems better. The fan noise! Good grief I know I'd seen complaints here but still wasn't prepared. I've installed the new BIOS and it is much better. The touch screen keeps cutting out. One minute it works fine and then I've got to revert to the pen. I'm not using this as a tablet as much (but I will be for drawing when I get the stylus) so it's not as huge of an issue as it could be but it's still really annoying! So, a bit of a nightmare, will see if Windows 8.1.1 fixes the touch issues and how this imported stylus works before making a final decision as to what to do next. Anyway, thought I'd say thanks to all the people here who've been working things out; reading through your posts has been better than Sony support!
