Comment

Model:

The Sony Vaio Pro 11 SVP121M2EB.G4 has been designed to be a marvelous combination of high performance and extreme portability. As such, this 11 inch machine weighs 0.86 kg, but sports specs that would look at home on a bigger Ultrabook. A Full HD IPS display is available for this machine, even on the basic model of the configuration options. There are a few ULV options of Haswell processors, and graphics are handled by integrated Intel chips. An SSD drive and 4 GB of RAM round out this tiny powerhouse. The oh-so thin body is made of carbon fiber, which should be sturdy enough for rough hands. Ports are well chosen on the limited space, with two USB 3.0 ports, a full-sized HDMI interface, a 3.5 mm combined audio jack and an SD card slot. Users will be able to connect to bigger displays when necessary with less of a hassle in finding the right cable.

A nice feature of the power adaptor is that it sports a USB 2.0 port, very handy for charging smartphones and other devices. The size of this device leads to a necessary cramping up and paring down of the backlit keyboard, but most light to moderate tasks should be comfortable. Those who type much more have issues with comfort. With full power saving measures, the battery will reportedly last up to 10 hours. Overall, this machine is fast and light (5 seconds boot time!) and well thought out. With a price range that places it on equal footing as the competition, Sony have made the Vaio Pro 11 SVP121M2EB.G4 one that stands out where it counts.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


4200U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

11.60":

This is a standard display format for tablet computers or small convertibles. You see more on the screen than on a smartphone but you can't use big resolutions well. On the other hand, mobility is not a problem.
