One of the best laptops, after you update the drivers

  • Summary: If bought new, remember to update the wireless drivers (get them from the Intel site!) for until then it won't connect unless you're right next to your access point! That being said, the Sony Vaio Pro 13 in Carbon Black is an excellent laptop. The screen is amazing, the battery life out-does pretty much everything I've tried it against and the keyboard is good for long-form journalism (my specialty) so it's good enough for anything ordinary users would throw at it.

Good, but not for the faint of heart

  • Summary: The Vaio Pro 13 requires a bios update, a wifi update (preferably from Intel for the Intel N 7260 wifi module), device updates from Sony--all before updating to Windows 8.1. Once one accomplishes these tasks, the Sony is quick, stable and a delight to use. The screen is excellent, the keyboard responsive and the track- pad behaves very well with Windows 8.1. The Pro 13 is also one of the lightest Ultrabooks available.

No heat and no WIFI problems.

  • Summary: I was scared buying this ultrabook after reading few bad reviews here. So far I had zero problems, WIFI is as good as any other device I have, it does get a little hot but nothing to worry about, the fan is noisy but only when very CPU activity is present. I love its weight, super fast boot time and overall performance. The I5 version is fast enough for me.

Not worth that price tag!

  • Summary: My old computer was a vaio, and I loved it. So when it came time to replace it, after lots of research and past experience, I thought this computer would be perfect. The machine I got wouldn't have been so disappointing if I had spent under $500. It was sleek, the touch screen was responsive, and it was super light. However it was so delicate, that I felt like the frame could be very easily scratched or bent. Also the brightness was stuck on the lowest setting.

Wireless is useless

  • Summary: You have to be next to the router to have a more or less decent connection, but even then it fails. Away from the router or in public wifi it is totally useless. A shame for an otherwise nice laptop.

Great laptop

  • Summary: Many people most likely complain about the wifi connection but there were updates that needed to be installed and now the issues are fixed. This is one of the fastest laptops that ive ever used most likely due to the intell core 4th generation i5 processor. If you buy it you wont be disappointed in your purchase and the customer service from sony is top notch if anything does need to be cleared up or if you have issues.

Sony Vaio Pro 13

  • Summary: CONS: The first one I bought I owned for a month before one day it just never turned on again, I returned it and received a new one and here are the issues ive had with both: 1.) constantly shuts down on its own due to DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION--I had this issue with both sony vaio 13 laptops and have learned its a hardware issue that ill have to send in for repair, which I have no time to do so I just have to put up with it shutting down on me 6-7 times a day 2.

Love it!!

  • Summary: First thing that you will notice is how light it is!! I have the silver one and it looks so good at night <3 the battery of this laptop is excellent, but it depends on what you use it for, if you use word, excel and powerpoint then you should get about 10-11 hours of usage at medium brightness, although using Wi-Fi can get you about 5-6 hours easily.
