Sony Vaio S Review

YugaTech
18 July 2012
  • Summary: All in all, we had a great time with the VAIO S13 despite the few bumps we encountered along the way. In our opinion these slight issues shouldn't eclipse the other good features of the laptop as those can be fixed with little bit of tweaking. However there’s not much you can do about the poor display but just to deal with it or attach an external monitor. Its greatest strength lies on its keyboard (minus the backlit function) and spacious clickpad.

Sony Vaio S Review

  • Summary: The Sony Vaio S 15” is an effective laptop that can be used for a variety of productivity tasks and also for light gaming. I personally think that it would be great for just about everything everything except hardcore gaming. As such, it should work for most people, in most situations. I personally think that this would be a great development machine for example. The large 1920×1080 screen combined with the full-size numeric pad is just a fantastic combo for that.

Sony VAIO S Series review

Techworld
15 December 2011
  • Summary: The Sony VAIO S Series may seem like a mediocre all-purpose laptop, and it is one. But it's also thin, light, and quite portable, and it sports Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Intel Wireless Display technology, and optional embedded mobile broadband. In other words, if you're looking for an all-purpose laptop that's stylish and easy to tote, the VAIO S Series might be the system for you.

Sony Vaio S Series Review

Digitaltrends
4 August 2011
  • Conclusion: The Sony S Series has much competition in the ultraportable space. Other brilliant laptops, like the Asus U line, Acer’s Timeline and Toshiba’s Protege, also provide outstanding portability but offer Core i5 processors for less than the base Sony S Series with a Core i3 under the hood. When it comes to bang-for-the-buck, this laptop can’t compete.
  • Pros: Attractive, Excellent keyboard and touchpad, Metal trim on interior feels luxurious, Premium model provides class-leading display resolution, Sheet battery offers outstanding endurance
  • Cons: Flimsy display lid, Loud system fan while under load, Unimpressive bang-for-the-buck, Bulky with sheet battery installed

Sony Vaio S Series 13P

TechRadar UK
2 August 2012
  • Conclusion: The Sony S Series 13P is a shining example of Sony's ability to craft great laptops and it's practically flawless as an ultraportable business machine. The inclusion of a Blu-ray drive doesn't stop it being a bit of a let-down when it comes to multimedia, but frankly that's splitting hairs considering the performance and extra features you get out of this machine.

Stacks of built-in features don't weigh down this stylish VAIO laptop, but it could use faster storage and a larger viewing area

Good Gear Guide.au
4 January 2012
  • Summary: Sony's S Series VAIO is a 13.3in notebook that packs plenty of features. It's also attractive and comfortable to use. It's mainly let down by slow performance due to a 5400rpm hard drive. We also wish it had a higher resolution screen and a better ambient light sensor controller. Apart from those issues though, we think it's a great unit to consider if you're looking to buy a stylish, highly mobile, yet fully-featured laptop before the end of the financial year.
  • Pros: Heaps of built-in features, Attractive design and colour, Comfortable, backlit keyboard
  • Cons: Slow hard drive leads to overall sluggish perfomance, Low screen resolution, All USB ports are on one side and next to each other
