Reviews for the Sony Vaio SVT1311M1ES

86% Review Sony Vaio SVT1311M1ES Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Hybrid book. Sony sends an ultrabook into the ring called SVT1311M1ES. An aluminum case and Intel Core i3 processor are to lure customers. A special highlight is the hybrid hard disk. It fuses the size of a conventional HDD with the speed of an SSD. Will Sony's Vaio ultrabook also be convincing in our tests?
60% Sony Vaio T13 review – a stylish and affordable ultrabook
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The Sony Vaio T13 is a budget ultrabook, but an overall nice, solid and fast machine. It does have its downsides of course, as corners are cut in order to meet the low price, although I don't find any of them true deal-breakers.

Will the company successfully mobilise the wealth of expertise it has acquired from previous models, such as the Z series, to outperform the competition while adhering to Intel's standards of computing power, thinness and battery life? In terms of both design and price, the Sony Vaio T13 is closer to the Aspire S3 than the Zenbook Prime UX31A or MacBook Air. Despite a few shortcomings, the T13 is good value for your money, as long as you stick with the less expensive options.

Still, for around £300 less than its fancier peers this a usable Ultrabook, and even with an Ivy Bridge upgrade the price is lower than the competition. Screen quality remains disappointing, as it is with all the other low-end Ultrabooks, but if you’re craving a thin-and-light laptop on the cheap, the Sony VAIO T13 is the best of the current crop.

There are Ultrabooks out there that offer a slicker experience than the Sony Vaio T13 but, at £679/$769.99, it only really has two rivals: the Novatech nFinity 2367 Plus and the Acer Aspire S3. And while it can't quite match that duo for speed and performance, its build and design blows them out of the water.

Overall, the Sony Vaio T13 is a mixed bag. On the one-hand it is a beautiful piece of technology with an attractive price-point, while on the other it has limited power and disappoints on a few levels. The response time from sleep is great and for everyday usage you probably won’t notice the lack of power, or encounter any major performance issues.

Sony VAIO T13

Sony’s first 13in Ultrabook, the VAIO T13, is quite a bit bulkier and heavier than many rivals, but offers a design that sets it apart, excellent build quality and all the connectivity you could want. With claimed nine-hour battery life and as it’s also the cheapest Ultrabook on the market after the £670 Acer Aspire S3, we can definitely see the VAIO T13 making an impact at the budget end of the premium Ultraportable market.

Sony Vaio T13 review: Hands-on
Source: T3 English
While Sony often tends to price its gadgets slighlty more steeply that its rivals, the Sony Vaio T13 is one of the more affordable ultrabooks to arrive, giving it an important competetive edge. We were impressed by the fast screen boot-up, the slick design and the intuitive touchpad. Watch this space for a full review.

Sony is setting a trend by not jumping on the bandwagon as soon as it starts rolling. It was slow off the mark with its Android tablet, for example, and it has been relatively slow to bring out its first Ultrabook.

Sony Vaio T13 Ultrabook review: First look

The T13 Vaio has all the ingredients to make it the best Ultrabook on the market. It comes with a beautifully crafted chassis, plenty of ports and a more than reasonable sub-£700 price point.

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.


1.6 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.
