Sony VAIO Pro 13
The VAIO Pro 13 is the latest flagship Ultrabook from Sony. It is powered by Intel's Haswell CPU, 4GB of RAM and a high-speed PCIe SSD. Triluminous color rendering and X-Reality engine technologies were added to the display, while the webcam uses the Exmore R CMOS sensor. There is also an optional battery that can be connected to double the battery life. Other features include 1080p IPS displays, NFC, a backlit keyboard and integrated graphics.
Lightest Ultrabook with touch.
Great full-HD touch display.
Fantastic battery life.
Bottom runs hot and occasional fan noise.
Body gives and flexes too much.
Trackpad and Wi-Fi can be finicky.
