We had high expectations. We would not expect any less than absolute perfection in all areas from a EUR 3000 notebook. Only this could justify the steep purchase price. And in fact: Sony has set up a very impressive device in many points with its Vaio...

The 2012 Sony Vaio Z or Sony Vaio S 13.3... I wouldn't be so dramatic as to call it a Sophie's Choice, but it sure isn't easy. The decision is even more difficult if you're considering the Sony Vaio S 13.3 Premium model we recently covered in our video...

以價位(建議售價44800)與硬體規格來看,「Sony Vaio S Series 13A」應該是第三代Core i7、2GB獨顯機種裡面算中等價位的高階Windows8機種(跟華碩或富士通比甚至還要便宜),重點以這個價格還可以買到「準」ULTRABOOK等級的「VAIO」筆電已經可以說是相當超值了,雖然價位還是有點高,但是換算其作工與品牌價值,以筆者個人感覺來說已經是價位相對合理的機種,如果要雞蛋裡挑骨頭的話可能就是 使用Windows8...
