Reviews for the Sony Vaio SV-T13122CXS
It's hard to recommend the Sony VAIO T13122CXS. At first glance the device is sleek and beautiful, but looks alone are not enough to carry a device, or justify a $700 price tag. While the notebook excels in certain areas, its faults all but negate those strong points. It offers a beautiful chassis, but the display is underwhelming; and where it has a comfortable quality keyboard, the multi-gesture touch is all but incompatible with Windows 8.
