Consumer review by: bhicks (



I run Acrobat X, MS Office, and other various projects. Never have to bring the charger but if I did it is super portable and small in size for easy storing. Love the rapid wake and motion sensor. I use this computer for 7 to 10 hours a day...

Great Battery and Performance

No illuminated keyboard

Nice but battery life is a question.


Having the ultrabook just two days, only seeing 3-4 hours of battery life on full charge (not the 7+ hours advertised). Contacted Sony tech support, they said the batter is a new Polymer technology that requires a break in period of a week or two....

Looks good. Fast. Nice features. Sony tech support is great (see comments below)

Glossy screen tough to see in direct light. Mouse pad size/position makes it east to bump while typing, will need to get used to it. Some sharp corners in the laptop design can be annoying. Battery life is still a question mark (see other thoughts)

Vaio T Series, exceeds expectations


I ordered the T series with Windows Professional 64 bits and 8 GB of RAM, and even withthose enhancements, the price was reasonable.

Fast, solid and with a nice appearance

The display could be less reflective

Everything good except battery


I like almost everything in this VAIO, given the price/quality ratio, this product is great. However, while I did not I expect the battery to last exactly as advertised (up to 7.5 hours) I thought it would be closer to that than the 3.5 hours mine...

light, fast, good screen

battery life short

I was very exciting to get the SONY ultra-book (SVT13116FXS) I purchased via Sony Online recently. But I was quite disappointed when I started to experence it since the ultra-book is really very noisy with its fan during working. I am a loyal user of...

Regretting It


I got the base i7 last week. After the first full charge out of the box I saw a whopping 4 hours of battery life on power saver mode with bluetooth and internet off. I supercharged this thing up to 4.5 hours by removing as much of the crapware as I...

good size/weight, very sturdy, SD card fits entirely inside

Bad trackpad, bad battery, tons-o-bloatware

Very nice choice


I am a fan of Sony products and as expected the product is very good in its class with reasonable price tag. The battery last long hours. It could have come with a backlit keypad, I am happy with the purchase.

lightweight, HDMI port, priced right, nice look

Consumer review by: ThisIsMe (

Very satisfied


I have only two complaints, both relatively minor. The first is the keyboard is only okay. It is certainly very usable and I adjusted to it, but the chiclet-style keys have little travel, so it isn't the best designed keyboard I've ever used. The other...

Every port you may need; fast(ish); light; battery life
