Series:

The Sony business series laptops have always been ultrabooks even before the ultrabook concept was introduced by Intel in 2011. The new Sony Vaio SV-S series isn’t an exception. It shouts premium in every way imaginable.  The Vaio S Series keeps the familiar brushed metallic body with sharp edges from the previous models and is much lighter than what it used to be. Keep in mind though. It is still thicker and heavier than the average ultrabook out there but can be easily carried around.

There is a reason for the extra waist. The Vaio S Series comes with a dedicated Nvidia GeForce GTM graphics card. Its other specs can also be cranked up to the limits of a performance laptop. Being a business class laptop, the S Series is equipped with a finger print scanner. The backlit keyboard and touchpad that are close to perfection. There is also a Blu-ray drive on the right side to set it further apart from the usual ultrabook.

Although the matte screen offers very good visibility outdoors, the lack of a full-HD resolution is a huge let down as it is what you would expect to see when you are going to pay a huge price for a laptop. Apart from that, the on-board storage simply isn’t enough and it has a poor speaker quality. Its contenders in the Ultrabook category have much more to offer in terms of multimedia and are also cheaper.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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.


1.7 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
