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.

The Pro 13 is just 17.2 mm thick The key­board as a matte fin­ish sur­face Tri­lu­mi­nous dis­play is also used in 4K TVs BAG IT OR JUNK IT: Ex­cep­tion­ally stylish and

por­ta­ble
