Sony VAIO Pro 13

PC Magazine
6 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The Sony VAIO Pro 13 shows that you can make laptops lighter and thinner when you use a fourth-generation Intel Core processor. It's very good, though Sony really needs a grand slam to distance itself from similar rivals.
  • Pros: Very light and thin. Speedy performance from SSD. Bright and clear Full HD resolution IPS 10-point touch screen. Full size HDMI. NFC support.
  • Cons: Could use more SSD storage. Some keyboard flex. Insistent fan. Back edge of lid can dig into your legs. Very good, but not great, battery life.

  • Pros: Bright Full HD IPS display with high contrast, Color accuracy, Backlit keyboard, Very low weight, Battery runtimes, Normal sized HDMI port, Fast SSD, Accessories and TPM, Battery slice port, The bright IPS display with its high color accuracy. The good runtimes and the energy-saving features of t...
  • Cons: Average stability of the base unit, Wobbly display hinges, Greasy glossy finish, Flexible keyboard, Low quality webcam, Reduced CPU/GPU performance, A docking port to improve the handling on the desk and perhaps with additional cooling. Uncomfortable touch operation due to the bouncing display.
