Summary: The Sony Vaio Pro 11 is a tasty technological reach. In TV, the specific medium-high and can be personalized according to the personal needs – it also adds a rather nice and complete software package, which includes VAIO Message Center, PlayMemories Home, VAIO Movie Creator, Album and Music from Sony, VAIO Care support, utilities, VAIO Transfer Support, VAIO Update and VAIO Control Center, the 30-day subscription to McAfee Internet Security and McAfee Parental Controls,...
Pros: Full HD screens excellent performance, light weight and easy handling, the new generation of Intel Core processors, utilities and software pre-installed.
Cons: Performance oscillating depending on the computational loads, high cost, limited storage space.
Summary: The superthin, superlight Sony Vaio Pro 11 is everything we expect from an excellent ultrabook.
Pros: The Sony Vaio Pro 11 weighs less than 2 pounds and uses a fourth-gen Intel Core i5 to deliver long battery life and very good everyday performance. It has an excellent 11.6-inch 1080p touch screen and is competitively priced for its features.
Cons: The Pro 11, like its competition, has a nonremovable battery (though you can add an external battery), few ports and connections, and integrated graphics only. System memory is maxed out at 4GB.
Summary: Delicate Butterfly. The new Sony Pro series shines due to its impressive technical specifications. Our test model is slim and offers decent battery life and nice performance. It could very well be the ideal companion on-the-go. In our review, we will see what this model has to offer.
Pros: Bright Full HD IPS display with strong contrast, Good color coverage, Keyboard backlight, Very good workmanship, Good battery life, Normal-sized HDMI port, Light weight, The light, slim case has great looks.
Cons: Reduced brightness on battery, Brightness fluctuations on battery, Base is not very sturdy, Small keys and the keyboard has poor sturdiness, Distracting fan behavior, A sturdy keyboard base and bigger keys. The fan behavior may be a problem limited to our test model, but if that is not the case, it needs to be dealt with.
Conclusion: The Sony VAIO Pro 11 (SVP11215PXB) is a sharp looking ultrabook powered by a fourth-generation Intel Core i7 CPU. It offers a beautiful hi-res touch-screen display and is extremely thin and light, but its graphics performance is middling and its battery life comes up short.
Pros: Intel Core i7 power.Ten-point touch screen. Full HD IPS display. Backlit keyboard. Supports NFC (Near Field Communication) technology. Full size HDMI port.
Cons: Limited port selection. So-so battery life. Integrated graphics.
Conclusion: Its keyboard takes a little (in our case, a very little) getting used to and its battery life is merely okay, but its display is crisp and colorful and its construction exemplifies quality. We suspect the more affordable Core i5 and 128GB SSD model would be sufficient for most ultrabook buyers, but if you (a.) travel and (b.) use Windows 8, either model is a first-class value.
Summary: The Sony VAIO Pro 11 largely delivers on Intel's Haswell promises inside an amazingly light design. While the performance gains are modest on this Ultrabook, we appreciate the above-average battery life. Plus, you can get more than 14 hours of juice if you spend more for the sheet battery. What prevents the Pro 11 from earning a higher rating is its flexy keyboard and the annoyingly sharp front corners.
