    Only a few things:
    Sony sold off VAIO a few years ago, VAIO corp are now a standalone company with a tiny fraction of the resources they used to have access to.
    The CPUs are Kaby Lake R (any of the Coffee Lakes, h or U, would have been impressive).
    All of the Sony-speak on their cooling system only amounts to "performs like other decent ultrabooks (XPS13, Thinkpad X1C6)"
    It has no USB-c/TB3 ports whatsoever. Every port is largely a legacy port (including the HDMI, which is 1.4 and not capable of 4k60p).

    It's a backwards-looking device. If anyone wants legacy ports, the Thinkpad X1C6 or the T480s would be better options, IMO. I think it's aimed at the few, remaining Vaio hardcore in Japan.

    People who like the feeling of the back edge of the laptop screen digging sharply into their lap.

    And with that pathetic driver, inaccessbility of recovery medias and impossibility to find parts, I'm glad that I got X1 tablet.
