Reviews for the Sony Vaio SV-P1321WSNB

80% Sony VAIO Pro 13 Touch (SVP1321WSNB) Review
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Sony Vaio Pro 13 is available at an MRP of Rs. 74,990 which may feel steep for a Core i5 system, but we feel it’s a decent price point considering what is on offer: fast performance, great battery life, light weight, responsive keyboard and touchscreen. Sure we would have loved a larger capacity SSD and a less noisy fan when all cores kick in, but the advantages easily overpower these minor niggles. If you are a business user or someone who wants a light Ultrabook with a great battery life, the Sony Vaio Pro 13 is a great option.

Comment

Model:

With a weight of just 1.1 kg, the 13 inch Sony Vaio SV-P1321WSNB is an extremely portable touchscreen machine. The design is beautiful, with slim lines and a dark metal look with a subtle, yet beautiful sheen. It is made from lightweight but durable carbon fiber. The Sony Vaio SV-P1321WSNB has a few great design touches that really improve the user experience. As laptops get thinner and thinner, it can get uncomfortable to type on. But here, when the screen is opened, it will raise the keyboard at an angle which will make it more comfortable for extended hours of keyboard use.

The keyboard is laid out well, and the touchpad is nice and responsive. The Full HD screen is absolutely gorgeous, with beautiful bright colors and sharp definition. The touchscreen is nice and responsive, too. Intel Core i5 4200U and integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400 will do great for most everyday tasks. We appreciate the fast wake time of less than 3 seconds. While the system performance is decent, only casual games should be played on this machine. The battery life is decent and will easily last through a workday.  The Sony Vaio SV-P1321WSNB is a great choice for those looking for a well built ultraportable with great looks for light to moderate tasks.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

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.


1.1 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.
