THE SONY VAIO PRO 13 is as thin and as light as Ultrabooks can be. Yes, this ultra-thin computer weighs all of 1.060kg and is 17.2 mm thick at its tallest point. That is the sort of portability the Ultrabook was originally supposed to bring in. The design is classy — a carbon fibre body with sharp edges that accentuate the sleekness.
This series also bring Sony’s patented Triluminous display – they use it in 4K TVs now – to the laptop. The Full HD display can recreate a whole array of the same colour is much more vivid detail than anything we have seen so far on Ultrabooks. It is also touch-enabled. The sound quality is good, even though the speakers are nowhere to be found. The backlight keyboard is isolated in a matte surface and the other buttons on the body are the Assist key and glowing green power button. The trackpad is stubborn though.
The Pro 13 is quick off the block, powering up in just about five seconds. The Intel Core i5 processor was able to complete the test tasks, though with a couple of seconds lag here and there. For more power you will need to buy the more expensive Core i7 version. We also noticed the device stays cool even when performing labour intensive tasks and this is good for the kind of people who will buy it.
