Sony VAIO T review

 

In 2012, ultrabooks are everywhere. Ostensibly, they're thinner, lighter, possibly more stylish laptops. And, as of late, they're pretty affordable, too. The average Windows ultrabook may have achieved MacBook Air-level prices in 2011, but this year...

The Vaio T is an affordable, slim Sony laptop that shares a lot in common with the design of the Vaio Z, and comes with all the ports and features you'd need, plus a larger hard drive.

The screen isn't the best we've seen on a Vaio, and a horribly shallow nonbacklit keyboard is uncomfortable.

Sony's first ultrabook, the Vaio T, doesn't fall far from the tree of other thin Sony laptops like the Vaio Z, but it's far more affordable: this is ultrabook-as-budget-laptop, not ultrabook as high-end computer.

Sony VAIO T Review (pics, specs)

 

The new Sony VAIO T series of notebooks carries on the Sony tradition of providing lots of functionality in a small and stylish package. The new VAIO T replaces the old popular Sony VAIO TR series of laptops. The Sony VAIO T150 I have been using comes...

Overall the VAIO T is another nice entry from Sony into the ultraportable market. They haven’t really made any huge advancements, but rather have just provided a nicely designed and nicely featured notebook that’s worth a look if you’re dead set on...

Goondu review: Sony Vaio T

 

The Vaio T starts at S$1,299 for both the 11-inch and 13-inch variety, which is relatively cheap, but how does it fare in daily use?

Having said that, it does stand out with its metallic design. It’s not as thin as some other ultrabooks nor as light, though the low-ish price might give it an edge over rivals such as Asus.

Consumer review by: MMGG2012 (cnet.com)

"Sony Vaio is your worst choice. you will regret it!!!!!"

 

Vaio is an absolute garbage! if you buy this you are pretty much betting on the machine. If it has any flwas, then, you are stuck bad. They are the only company that don't have return policy (unless you buy it from the store). I sent mine for repair,...

Nothing, Maybe a bit good looking

frequent failure, extremely poor customer service

"Has the new Intel 4000 graphics."

 

New graphics 4000 chip/card. Suppose to be 2.5x faster than 3000. Regular hard drive plus SSD (hybrid)

Back at you on this one.
