Attractive brushed silver design ; Priced to compete ; Good everyday performance ; Highly configurable

Uncomfortable keyboard ; Heavy for an Ultrabook

Sony's first Ultrabook boasts a budget-friendly price and an attractive design, but it's not the highest-performing or longest-lasting system out there.

Sony's first Ultrabook, the VAIO T13, offers an elegant design and fast third-generation Core i5 performance, but the battery life could be better.

Click to EnlargeIf you're looking for a well-designed and fast Ultrabook without breaking the bank, the $799 Sony VAIO T13 belongs on your short list. Sony also deserves credit for designing a clickpad that works well and offering support at the touch...

Sony VAIO T13: A Middle-of-the-Road Ultrabook

 

Long before many other laptop vendors began experimenting with netbooks and ultraportables, Sony was making skinny, lightweight laptops--many with small screens, most of them rather pricey. Its first Ultrabook, the VAIO T13, is neither exceptionally...

Moderately priced, lightweight ; Good audio, fast startup, lots of storage

Keyboard isn't great ; Hybrid drive slows down some tasks

The Sony VAIO T13 delivers most of what you expect from an Ultrabook with some popular consumer features at a surprisingly affordable price.

Sony Vaio T13 review – a stylish and affordable ultrabook

THE GOOD nice design, feels overall solid, several hardware configs available, runs cool, the battery, memory and hard-drive are easily accessible, good price

THE BAD a bit heavy, mushy keyboard, noisy when pushed, sub-par battery life, poor screen, poor performances on this tested unit

The Sony Vaio T13 is the brand's first ultrabook, packing a Sandy Bridge Intel processor, and falling under the Sony Vaio T Series umbrella

Gorgeous design ; Affordable price ; Legacy ports

Dated CPU ; Poor battery life ; Average display

While Sony often tends to price its gadgets slighlty more steeply that its rivals, the Sony Vaio T13 is one of the more affordable ultrabooks to arrive, giving it an important competetive edge. We were impressed by the fast screen boot-up, the slick...

Sony VAIO T13 review

 

When we saw the first incarnation of the Sony VAIO T13 we though it was 'a well-rounded entry-level Ultrabook, although not without its faults'. At the time it was cheap, by Ultrabook standards, but this update has gone upmarket with a new Ivy Bridge...

Ivy Bridge and an SSD make a world of difference, but it's expensive

Currently the best low-priced Ultrabook on the market, but this Sony does have its weaknesses

Performance is fine, though. The result of 0.45 in our Real World Benchmarks puts it a little way behind models with Turbo Boost-equipped Core i5 processors, but it’s more than adequate for general use. As ever, the weakling Intel HD Graphics 3000...
