Summary: As many other reviewers here have stated, the WiFi signal strength for this laptop is problematic. I have tested it with several home and commercial access points, and have found reception to be consistently worse (25-30%) than other devices (phone, tablet, otehr laptops, etc...). I don't use BlueTooth, so cannot speak to its functionality. Otherwise, the hardware is excellent.
Great As Long As You Make Sure Vaio Care Utility Is Manually Updated From Sony Support Website.

Summary: Once I figured out the update problem, it's been great. My vaio pro 13 started off great - the i7 processor with 8gb of ram and a fast drive meant it was nice and fast. I had no problems with wifi, and frankly it found nearby routers my tablets netbooks, and previous laptops didn't see. Then windows updated to 8.1. WIFI became very iffy, and I'd need to roll back updates on a regular basis because it simply stopped working.
Conclusion: Sony Vaio Pro 13 as name suggests has 13.3 inch screen. It is powered by 4GB RAM and i5 3rd Gen processor. This is decent but for the price charged I believe they should have offered i7 processor. Touch screen is responsive and there are no lags on Windows 8 but sometimes it is tough at corners of the screen.
Conclusion: With all the advances made in smartphones and tablets, not to mention the hybrids, it’s easy to forget that Sony makes regular ultrabooks as well. Thus we have the Sony Vaio Pro 13 Touch. Right away, its sleek black body is apparent and has enough carbon fibre to withstand any knocks (though the lid is susceptible to flexing with above average force). This also helps make the device lighter and at 1.06 kg, with a maximum thickness of 0.68 inches, it’s quite something.
