The Sony Vaio Pro 13 is an awesome ultrabook, with an angular design and a 2.4 lbs light body. Powered by an Intel Haswell platform, sporting a touchscreen and a very good keyboard, the Pro 13 is definitely something to look at these days. If only it...

Perhaps the most obvious observation of this Sony VAIO Pro 13 Ultra is that, even with its installed OS configuration and bloatware, the speed of the M.2 SSD is identical to that expected of a brand new FOB (fresh out of box) XP941  A closer look at the...

You'll pay for the privilege, but outside of the lack of gaming potential, there are no major flaws that should keep you away. If you want something a bit more rigid and with faster graphics, I'm hoping to get one of the new ASUS UX301 Ultrabooks with i7-4558U in for testing, but they haven't begun shipping yet. Meanwhile, Sony's Haswell update is just what the mobile road warrior needs.

A 1KG Ultrabook is an engineering feat. The Toshiba Z830 , at 1.1KG still surprises 2 years after launch. Since then though we haven't seen many attempt to break the 2.2 pound mark. Only the NEC LaVie Z , an expensive Asia-only model, and the almost...

I've got a Sony VAIO Pro 13 here thanks to Intel. It's the lightest touch-enabled 13.3-inch Ultrabook there is and at 1KG / 2.2 pounds it beats all of the the 2-in-1 options. This isn't a cheap subnotebook but it's got enough power to be a desktop PC for...

This new Sony Vaio Pro 13 caught our eye earlier this year for a couple of reasons: first, it's one of the lightest Ultrabook Windows laptops with a quality design. Second, you can buy a second battery which extends the battery life by quite a lot. PC &...

There are things that we absolutely love about the Sony VAIO Pro 13 and that includes its light and durable carbon fiber construction, resulting in the worlds lightest 13″ ultra at just over 2lbs, and the fact that Sony went all out with an IPS 1920×1080...

The Sony Vaio Pro 13 is available at an MRP of Rs. 74,990 which may feel steep for a Core i5 system, but we feel it's a decent price point considering what is on offer: fast performance, great battery life, light weight, responsive keyboard and...

Sony's VAIO Pro 13 rises from the ashes of the VAIO Z Series, Sony's legendary ultraportable. Once again, Sony has attempted to redefine what we expect from a lightweight, portable laptop. With Intel's Haswell processors and a Full HD touchscreen packed...

The Sony Vaio Pro 13 runs neck and neck with some other very good to excellent Ultrabooks, and that's the problem. It needed to be much better than rivals to pull ahead of the pack. The fourth-generation Intel Core CPU teased us with the promise of a...

I dare say Sony's Vaio Pro 13 is everything you could want in an ultrabook. Until the MacBook Air gets a much-needed screen upgrade (when's that happening, Apple?), this svelte number from Sony is arguably the best ultralight money can buy.Let's start...

The Sony Vaio Pro 13 is an excellent Windows 8 alternative to the Apple MacBook Air 13". It's ultra-light and has a superb screen, tons of processing power, great sound quality and over 6½ hours of battery life. It's a device capable of quenching the...

If this were $250 less... When it comes to design, the Sony VAIO Pro 13 is a clear winner. Its carbon fiber construction exudes style, plus whatever bag you toss it into won't weigh you down. If only I could heap praise upon all aspects of the Pro...

When it comes down to it the Sony Vaio Pro 13 is a superthin and light ultrabook with an amazingly long battery life. The Sony Vaio Pro really is a prime example of what's possible with Intel's fourth-gen Core i-series processors and offers a great...

There is no joy in the Sony Vaio Pro. For a laptop that is, in substance, elegant and powerful, that's strange. It's pretty and sleek and slim, but somehow with none of the joie de vivre that typically comes along with that.When the Vaio Pro first hit...
