In general, the Sony VAIO T13 straddles the blurry lines between all-purpose, thin-and-light, and Ultrabook portables with reasonable skill. It compromises a bit on performance due to the hybrid drive, and some of the ergonomics could be better, but it delivers the lightweight design, the fairly roomy storage space, and (except for its lack of 5GHz Wi-Fi) the various connectivity options that are popular with consumers--all at an uncharacteristically (for Sony) affordable price. People who like the idea of an Ultrabook but don't want to sacrifice a lot of traditional features should give it a look

If you're looking for a well-designed and fast Ultrabook without breaking the bank, the $799 Sony VAIO T13 belongs on your short list. Sony also deserves credit for designing a clickpad that works well and offering support at the touch of a button. Unfortunately, this notebook's screen has narrow viewing angles and the 5-hour battery life is below average.
