The Sony VAIO Pro comes in 6 different versions, four 13" versions varying by RAM and SSD size - and two 11.6" versions. At only 1060g the 13" version is incredibly light and easy to take with. Sony's newest Triluminos-Display technology combined with a Full HD resolution make this display very color-true and will most probably be loved by Photographers or Videoproducers. One nifty little thing is the AC adapter, as it comes with a built-in Ethernet to Wifi Router which can be detached to give room to the hidden USB-Port for charging other devices.

Sony VAIO Pro 13 alternatives

Toshiba KIRA-10D, 13.3 inch, 1100 grams (2.43 lbs)
The new version of the Toshiba KIRA (Kirabook) uses the same quality chassis for the third year running. It has a full HD IPS matte non-touch screen and I notice this specific model is not on Toshiba's European website (there are 3 Kira 10's and it looks like the 10H, the 10J has a touchscreen). As such I suppose its not an ultrabook has very good aesthetics but is expensive. Measuring under 18mm in height and weighing just 1.1kg, the Kira features an Intel Core i7 processor, a 256GB solid state drive and a full HD display so is a powerful laptop in a compact design.
HP Stream 13.3, 13.3 inch, 1100 grams (2.43 lbs)
The HP Stream 13.3 is another $240 laptop based around the Intel Celeron N2840 dual core Cherry Trail platform. It has a minimal hardware footprint like 2GB of RAM and 32GB of flash storage.

HP Envy Notebook, 13.3 inch, 1270 grams (2.8 lbs)
The Envy laptop is HPs thinnest one ever at 12.95mm in an all metal body but you will still get high performance with 6th generation Core i processors and 8GB RAM. HP on their website compare this to the Apple Macbook Air 13 which suggests better cpu, ram and price and of course thinness! 12.95mm v 17mm
MSI GS30, 13.3 inch, 1200 grams (2.65 lbs)
The MSI GS30 Shadow is from the MSI Gaming Series - it's a 13.3" notebook of only 1.2 kg and 19.8 mm in height. The case is sleek and lightweight aluminum. The computing power is provided by the Intel Core i7-4870HQ processor which goes up to 3.7 GHz in Turbo, 16GB RAM and two SSDs in Super RAID array along with integrated graphics in the form of Intel Iris 5200 Pro.

It is built around Intel's Core M platform with a 1.1GHz processor and 8GB of RAM. With 256 or 512GB of SSD Storage it features sufficient storage for most usage scenarios. At 1.31cm at its thickest point, this device really is slim. It weighs 920g and packs a 39.7Wh battery which should last for up to 9 hours of web surfing. It's silent!

Samsung Ativ Book 9 (2015), 12.2 inch, 950 grams (2.09 lbs)
The Samsung Ativ Book 9 (2015) is a new Ultrabook that comes with a 12.2" display with a whopping 2560x1600 pixels resolution. Furthermore the display is capable of putting out a very bright 700 nits in outdoor mode. Battery runtime is supposed to be 10.5 hrs under "low usage" scenarios.

Dell XPS 13 (2015), 13.3 inch, 1180 grams (2.6 lbs)
The new Dell XPS 13 with 5th-Gen Core (Broadwell) is undoubtedly a stunning looking device but if you take a closer look you?ll see the stars aligning for what could be the best Ultrabook ever. You?ve got no-touch options starting at $799 and, if you dare, a QHD+ (3200 x 1800) touch option with 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD and a Core i7 for just $1599. All models have AC WiFi, Sync and Charge USB, DisplayPort, backlit full-size keyboard and a precision touchpad which has already had good feedback from The Verge. Even fully loaded the XPS 13 weighs just 1.26KG (2.8 lbs) and the best thing is that it?s got a 54Wh battery inside that?s going to power this Ultrabook for a hard day?s work. Trust me, I?ve had the same setup on a Haswell ultrabook and you really can leave the power adaptor at home. If the battery life isn?t enough for you there?s an external power pack available, the 12,000 mAh (possibly 44Wh) Dell Power Companion, that will boost battery life by up-to 7 hours. hip dates for the XPS 13 are 22nd Jan (Core i3) and 28th Jan (Core i7.)
