Sony Vaio Pro 13 Video Deep-Dive. At 2.2 pounds with Core CPU this is high-powered mobility

Posted on 05 October 2013, Last updated on 03 January 2014 by

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 most people.

I’ll get a full review up on this next week but for now, take a look at this video where I spend time going over the Ultrabook in a lot of detail, including answering some questions from readers over at my other site, UMPCPortal.  WiFi, Fan noise and keyboard flex could be issues you need to think about before you buy but it’s a fantastic bit of kit that includes a Ethernet/WiFi router module and an additional battery that gives you a total battery life of well over 10 hours.

    Wouldn’t the Pro 11 be more fitting for this site?

    I can handle flex (especially if it really does provide noticeably better impact protection) and fan noise but not for the price Sony is asking for. I won’t take bad WiFi performance no matter the price. The Vaio Pro doesn’t seem like a very professional device for the kind of money they’re asking.

    Also, that Ethernet to WiFi hotspot/router… What is the point of that? I’d rather Sony provide a USB 3.0 to gigabit Ethernet adapter. You’ll get a faster, more stable connection and you won’t need a wall socket to power it.

    At least it looks nice. That’s good if you care more about how look with it than actually using it.
