81% Review Sony Vaio Pro 13 SVP-1321C5ER Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Red Baron. After the Pro 11 we have a closer look at the 13-inch Red Edition. How much polish can an elitist business notebook handle? How much performance can the just 10 mm thin base unit keep cool? Our review gives the answers.
80% Sony VAIO Pro 13 review: This audacious Ultrabook is guaranteed to get you noticed
Source: PC World English
Freed from powering a mechanical hard drive and a discrete graphics processor, the battery in the VAIO Pro ran for an impressive 6 hours, 14 minutes before it conked out. But the VAIO Pro’s most impressive spec is its weight: At 2.34 pounds, it weighs less than the Toshiba Qosmio X75’s power supply.

The Sony Vaio Pro 13 SVP-1321C5ER is an Ultrabook that's stylish and eye-catching. This slim, carbon fiber machine may not have the power to run demanding games, due to its integrated graphics card (Intel HD 4400), but it should be able to handle most users needs with ease. Several different configurations are available, but the SSD and the Full HD IPS display will bump up and improve the performance and look of any configuration chosen. The one problem that the SSD causes is a lack of storage. 128 GB may not be enough for some users. Ports may seem limited, with only an SD Card reader, a headset jack, HDMI out, and two USB 3.0 ports. The limited space available on this slim machine is possibly the cause.

Weighing in at just 1 kg, this 13.3 inch machine fits in nicely with the definition of the Ultrabook. It is ultra light and ultra portable. This effect is enhanced by the battery life, which can last over 6 hours of moderate to heavy use. The machine is also available in a few eye catching colors. As has been the case with many of the slimmer machines that are out in the market today, when the lid is opened, it raises the keyboard up to give it a slight angle. This should enhance user comfort for typing. The island style keys are backlit. With all the specs considered, this is probably the most portable and attractive package, with the best hardware that could fit. Overall, a great machine for those looking for a premium, portable machine for work, and less demanding play.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

1.066 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
