Sony Vaio Pro 13

 

It's the lightest 13-inch ultrabook in the world, but is it the best?

Incredibly light ; Class-leading screen ; Comfortable keyboard

Battery life short of MacBook Air ; Temperamental touchpad

Viewing angles are particularly wide thanks to the IPS display tech, however the glossy finish on the screen does mean it suffers from severe reflections in sunlight and the odd finger smudge or two. Sony has also included its X-Reality mobile picture...

Sony VAIO Pro 13 review

 

Sony sticks with a clamshell format for its latest touchscreen Ultrabook to deliver something special

Fantastic touchscreen ; Beautiful keyboard ; Negligible weight ; Excellent battery life

Hybrid format still icky ; Average gaming performance

A fantastic touchscreen Windows 8 laptop that reinvigorates the clamshell design and packs in the power without sacrificing portability.

Sony VAIO Pro 13 review

 

It may be the lightest Ultrabooks we've ever seen and have an impressive battery life, but its thin chassis compromises performance.

Sony VAIO Pro 13 review

 

The cheapest version of the Vaio Pro 13 costs £859 and you get a Core i5 processor running at 1.6GHz. You don't get a touchscreen, either.

The Vaio Pro may fall short in some areas, but that’s only because it aims so high. Its weight and size are truly impressive, and bode well for the coming generation of Haswell laptops. However, the flexible carbon fibre doesn’t instill confidence and...

Geek Buy: Sony Vaio Pro 13 impresses

 

It offers a great balance of the three things I was seeking - a lightweight machine, a great keyboard to type on and a sharp screen offering at least a Full HD resolution.

Sony Vaio Pro 13

 

The Sony Vaio 13 packs a seriously powerful 4th generation Intel Core processor and includes the gorgeous Triluminous display. In short the Sony Vaio Pro 13.3" Touchscreen Ultrabook is a portable performance powerhouse.

Great battery life, Thin, Ultra lightweight, NFC enabled touchpad, Backlit keyboard, Brilliant performance

Can become rather expensive, Non removable battery, Max of 8 GB RAM

Sony Vaio Pro 13 review

 

With a stunning 13in full HD touchscreen, is this ultra-light 1kg machine a potential best friend for business users?

Stunning touchscreen, Extremely light, Excellent battery life

Feels flimsy, Typical Ultrabook performance

Sony Vaio Pro 13 hands-on review

 

We take a look at Sony's answer to the Lenovo X1 Carbon Thinkpad

Our initial tests suggest that the Sony Vaio Pro 13 is a decent ultrabook, offering business users a solidly built yet surprisingly light powerhouse Windows 8 laptop. However, Sony hasn't mentioned how much the Vaio Pro 13 will cost when it comes out...

A laptop PC that really challenges Apple's MacBook Air - Matt Warman welcomes a valiant attempt.

Sony VAIO Pro 13 Ultrabook

 

Sony's VAIO Pro 13 has a touchscreen, but it's still one of the lightest Ultrabooks on the Aussie market today

Very thin and light ; Excellent screen ; Full-sized SD card slot and HDMI ; Very fast storage performance

A little noisy ; Touchpad isn't great ; Doesn't have Intel HD 5000 graphics

The Sony VAIO Pro is a great Ultrabook to consider if you want something very light, easy to carry, yet comfortable to use and with good performance for common tasks. It even has a touchscreen.
