If it weren't for Windows 8, I'd be delighted

Mike Z, Amazon
20 June 2014
  • Summary: The Ultrabook is great, but the operating system (Windows 8) is deplorable. Screen delivers sharp contrast, keyboard is responsive, but figuring out how to use it efficiently is pretty rough.

No complaints!

Nicole Wilson, Amazon
23 March 2014
  • Summary: Got this in December 2013 and so far so good. After a few annoyances re needing to update drivers, and move to Windows 8.1, it's been smooth sailing. Every so often I will lose wireless connectivity if I leave it in sleep mode sitting at my house. But a reboot always restores it. And the restarts are SO fast. In general I'm an Apple fan. But for work and travel use, this is terrific.

Light and nice, great battery life but has issues with WIFI

  • Summary: I got this laptop for about a month, and I really LOVE it. Cons - Battery life is great, it can stay up to 8 hours, - Keyboard is really good, - Construction is very nice, and it's thin and lite... you will love it, BUT... this laptop has issues with WIFI, it is annoying that you have to manually connect to your network, if you're lucky to have the device functioning.

Great computer at great price, but with limitations

Anonymous, Amazon

  • Summary: It's sad that Sony has gone out of the computer business when it can turn out fantastic ultrabooks like this one. At 2.34 lbs, it is the lightest 13.3" computer on the planet. Move aside, Apple! The only -- and significant -- downside is that it shipped with Windows 8. Going to the Sony support page shows more than 20 updates that are required, and it is very important to install some before upgrading to Windows 8.1 and some after updating to Windows 8.1.

Viao Pro 13 is nearly an excellent laptop

Frank E. Butler, Amazon
30 August 2013
  • Summary: I am an executive and work in a technology company. Over the years I have owned a number of laptops, most recently the Lenovo X301, which was the best laptop I had/have ever owned. Recently, I decided to purchase the Sony Vaio Pro, mainly so I could get the Windows 8 experience on a touch screen device.

Overall good product for its form factor, but there can be glitches here and there

Yi Zeng, Amazon
27 August 2013
  • Summary: Love the high resolution screen, back-lit keyboards, light weight, battery life and fast start-up... Just what I need and want to be able to go around with my work. I would have given it a 5 if not for the below problems: - I had to return the first device within a week because of a bad USB port (broken pin), which was random problem anyone can run into. - Pre-installed Intel Anti-theft service is trash. Do not activate it without backing up everything!

Worthy of "Pro" billing, despite Windows 8

Amazon
26 August 2013
  • Summary: I am a Mac user, let's get that out right up front. I switched to Macs over four years ago, but Windows is an ever-present specter even for hard-core Mac users, I'd guess. I'm not above using a Windows machine as long as it's top-notch, and thankfully, this Sony Vaio lives up to its "Pro" billing. It might not be quite as impressive to behold as a Macbook Air, but it's pretty nice indeed.

Great Ultrabook with a few quirks that you may get used to quickly

Al Gator "Al", Amazon
9 July 2013
  • Summary: SECOND UPDATE =================== (1) Speakers (2) Build (3) Temperature/fan noise (4) Tips (5) General Thoughts (1) Speakers: I know some of the professional reviews said they aren't the greatest but they are not terrible for the size. No, you're not going to get blown away and you're not going to get deep bass. The built-in speakers are located around the hinge, facing up and slightly toward the screen.

Love it!

Mike H, Amazon
21 November 2013
  • Summary: As others has covered the basics I'd just add that windows 8 takes a bit of getting used too and things like skype no longer have the DND or AWAY options but as a laptop and appearance then you can't beat it. Great screen and love the back light keyboard feature. -ve fan is noisy sometimes . +ve battery life is circa 6hrs of heavy working.

Great laptop with one enormous flaw

Alex H, Amazon
11 November 2013
  • Summary: This is a great laptop, filled with cutting edge technology. A lot of though has gone into it. As always with VAIO, it oozes style. They've made some great compromises in order to achieve almost impossible weightlessness and looks. They've sacrificed the NIC card and the graphic card; invented a great micro-router that acts as a wireless bypass for the network cable. It's all there - great though, innovation, looks, technology.
