Review: Sony Vaio T Series SVT13112FXS


Sony's Vaio T Series is more restrained than the company's other notebooks, offering a slimmed-down computing experience complete with third-generation Core i5 CPU for just...

Generally good keyboard and clickpad. Slightly above-average performance. Good battery life. Upgrade to Windows 8 (when it comes out in October) for

Needs more USB ports. As usual, bundled Sony software overwhelms even simple tasks. Washed out color on dim LCD

Sony VAIO T Series 13 (SVT131290X)


When Sony sent us its first ultrabook, the VAIO T Series, last spring, we were impressed with its handsome design, wealth of features, and surprisingly affordable price. Fast-forward to the fall, and Sony has refreshed the T Series to coincide with the...

Aggressively priced ; Responsive touch screen ; Long battery life ; Sharp design ; Good port selection

Mediocre keyboard ; So-so Webcam ; No GPU upgrade option

Sony has updated its winning ultrabook with an optional touch screen to take full advantage of Windows 8. That responsive screen adds only $100, and you still get the sleek design and good performance of the original.

Sony VAIO T Series (SVT13112FXS)


If you're not going to be first to a party, at least make a splash when you show up! That's the rule Sony followed with its first foray into the ultrabook category, the VAIO T Series SVT13112FXS. An "Ivy Bridge"-powered superslim laptop, the T Series...

Affordable price for an ultrabook ; Hybrid hard drive/solid-state technology ; Sharp design ; Good port selection

Mediocre keyboard and Webcam ; Sealed-in battery

Sony's first ultrabook hits almost all high notes, with a sleek design, good performance, plenty of features and—get this!—a very affordable price.

Sony VAIO T Series (SVT13116FGS) Ultrabook


Sony VAIO T Series review: a third gen Core i7 Ultrabook with plenty of style and a few shortcomings

Core i7 CPU ; Fast SSD ; Battery life ; Good style

Glossy screen ; Fairly noisy ; USB ports only on one side ; Keys feel too shallow

Good looks, fast performance and long battery life are the standout features of the Sony VAIO T Series (SVT13116FGS). However, it's an Ultrabook that could use a bit of refining: we'd like a better keyboard, dual-band Wi-Fi, a matte screen and a USB...

Sony Vaio T Series Ultra-book


Sony has joined the mid-segment ultra-book league with its latest T Series ultrabook Vaio SVT11113FGS priced at Rs 49k and powered by Intel's 3rd gen processor.

A good performer but loses out on features to the Samsung Series 5 ultrabook.

Great Laptop


Loving it. I'm a Mac user with all of the Apple hardware so I thought I would look at slowly changing to other OS systems. This laptop has impressed me. I'm still learning Windows 8 but I'm really liking this laptop. In fact, I've not picked up my iPad...

Touchscreen, size is perfect for my use, screen is very clear, Windows 8

No backlighting on the keyboard

Nice W8 touch screen, but noise CPU fan


I have used other Sony laptop, and various other laptop, MAC, DELL, LENOVO. non of them get this loud.

Very nice, fast and shiny ultrabook with Win8. is not even warm yet

After ~2 weeks use, the fan noise gets fairly loud, definitely when you are using it in the quiet room, and it is becoming annoying. Still need to contact Newegg or Sony support if there is a away to lower the fan speed, the CPU case

not recommended for Skype users


compact and light weight ; operate 4+ hours on battery ; low heat and low noise ; touch screen

the microphone is placed close to speaker - this creates a feedback sound loop problem when use Skype or other chat system ; No microphone input ; The metal cover at the back of the LCD conducts electricity when plug in to the power adapter
