Sony Vaio Pro 11 is a lighter-than-Air ultrabook

 

With up to 6 hours of battery life, a 1080p touch screen, and very good performance, this is a strong Windows 8 competitor to Apple's MacBook Air.

The ; 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.

Sony VAIO Pro review: 'we're going to war with the MacBook Air'

 

My go-to laptop buying advice has been the same for the last two years, at least for anyone who doesn't know their PRAM from their Linux kernel. Oh, you're looking for a new laptop? Buy a MacBook Air. Apple's cheapest and lightest notebook is the easy...

Ridiculously thin and light ; Fantastic battery life

Huge build quality problems ; Ugly, problematic keyboard backlight in silver version ; Trackpad and Wi-Fi can be finicky ; Base model has a few performance issues

Two laptops, one purpose: make a thin, light laptop to take on Apple's

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

 

Ultrabooks don't get much smaller than this offering from Sony.

Quality screen. Good performance given the size.

Touchpad not great. Thermal issues.

If mobility is your number one priority, and you don’t mind the less than stellar performance, the Sony VAIO Pro 11 is one of the easiest laptops to lug around.
