The Sony Vaio Pro 11 SVP121M2EB.G4 has been designed to be a marvelous combination of high performance and extreme portability. As such, this 11 inch machine weighs 0.86 kg, but sports specs that would look at home on a bigger Ultrabook. A Full HD IPS display is available for this machine, even on the basic model of the configuration options. There are a few ULV options of Haswell processors, and graphics are handled by integrated Intel chips. An SSD drive and 4 GB of RAM round out this tiny powerhouse. The oh-so thin body is made of carbon fiber, which should be sturdy enough for rough hands. Ports are well chosen on the limited space, with two USB 3.0 ports, a full-sized HDMI interface, a 3.5 mm combined audio jack and an SD card slot. Users will be able to connect to bigger displays when necessary with less of a hassle in finding the right cable.
A nice feature of the power adaptor is that it sports a USB 2.0 port, very handy for charging smartphones and other devices. The size of this device leads to a necessary cramping up and paring down of the backlit keyboard, but most light to moderate tasks should be comfortable. Those who type much more have issues with comfort. With full power saving measures, the battery will reportedly last up to 10 hours. Overall, this machine is fast and light (5 seconds boot time!) and well thought out. With a price range that places it on equal footing as the competition, Sony have made the Vaio Pro 11 SVP121M2EB.G4 one that stands out where it counts.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.
