Review Sony Vaio Pro 11 SVP121M2EB.G4 Ultrabook

 

Delicate Butterfly. The new Sony Pro series shines due to its impressive technical specifications. Our test model is slim and offers decent battery life and nice performance. It could very well be the ideal companion on-the-go. In our review, we will...

Bright Full HD IPS display with strong contrast ; Good color coverage ; Keyboard backlight ; Very good workmanship ; Good battery life ; Normal-sized HDMI port ; Light weight

Reduced brightness on battery ; Brightness fluctuations on battery ; Base is not very sturdy ; Small keys and the keyboard has poor sturdiness ; Distracting fan behavior

Sony has managed to leave many Windows 8 tablets in the dust (in terms of weight and mobility) despite having used a classic notebook design

Sony Vaio Pro 11

 

Splashy convertibles and hybrids might be what many laptop makers are using to get people interested in buying a new Windows 8 system, but we've been waiting for some good ol' traditional clamshells that are more than Windows 7 models with touch...

The Sony Vaio Pro 11 weighs less than 2 pounds and uses a fourth-gen Intel Core i5 to deliver long battery life and very good everyday performance. It has an excellent 11.6-inch 1080p touch screen and is competitively priced for its features.

The Pro 11, like its competition, has a nonremovable battery (though you can add an external battery), few ports and connections, and integrated graphics only. System memory is maxed out at 4GB.

The superthin, superlight Sony Vaio Pro 11 is everything we expect from an excellent ultrabook.

Overall it's a pretty good ultrabook; has touchscreen. Lightweight, of the same weight as apple mackbook air, high quality screen, make sure to get a privacy filter to get rid of glare.

"Excellent laptop. The WiFi issue can easily be fixed."

 

The WiFi doesn't work but, if you go online and look for a solution,they'll tell you to re install/update the drivers using the Vaio update program. Pretty simple and it worked for me.

It's thin, has great battery life and is exceptionally fast.

The WiFi initially doesn't work.

Consumer review by:

"Big Problem: WiFi does not work!"

 

This is a great laptop, with one little catch: the WiFi doesn't work! I find it hard to believe that Sony is shipping a product with a known design flaw, but this appears to be the case. TONS of people are returning the laptops. See Sony's own message...

Lightweight, touchscreen, long battery life.

Defective WiFi design. Not kidding.

Not so pro

 

I bought a note 8 tablet and needed a full windows OS for work. Took it back Tried the ativ (i think, bought from att.) only to have it take way to long to load anything from a web page to a refresh on the OS itself (took 5 hours to try and remove the...

Great portable work laptop

 

I wanted to work laptop for writing, so I needed a decent keyboard, and it needed to be light. I travel a lot and hate lugging heavy computers. This laptop is great. Nice keyboard, gorgeous screen, all for under two pounds. Love it.Maybe not enough...
