Reviews for the Sony Vaio Pro SVP1321X9EB

83% Review: Sony Vaio Pro 13
Source: PC Authority English
With the VAIO Pro 13, Sony has taken the essence of the VAIO Z Series and honed it to near-perfection. Only time will tell if the VAIO Pro 13’s flexible chassis will last the course, but it’s hard not to be impressed. The VAIO Pro 13 crams an equivalent amount of power and versatility into the very lightest Ultrabook chassis money can buy.

80% Sony Vaio Pro 13

Sony has crammed one of the best touchscreens we’ve seen inside its lightweight, slimline Vaio Pro Ultrabook. The 1kg device also has a sleek design, lengthy battery life and decent performance. It’s not the strongest of laptops, but it’s ideal if you want a versatile machine for working on the road.

Comment

Model:

The Sony Vaio Pro SVP1321X9EB is extraordinary, primarily for one reason: It is a 13.3 inch laptop with only 1 kg. It is the lightest ultrabook this size or performance. So, it is absolutely ideal for travel and working on the go. The Sony Vaio Pro SVP1321X9EB features an Intel Core i7 4500U with 1.8 GHz and an integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400. Resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels is respectable and images look vivid on its glossy display, which hinders working in the bright outdoors or with too much overhead lighting. The only other con is that it gets a little noisy while running processor intensive tasks. But, it is elegant and slim and features a great battery life. The touch screen is one of the best in such a device.

Casual gamers will be satisfied, and most modern games should be playable with lowest resolution settings. Because of the built-in hardware the Sony Vaio Pro SVP1321X9EB is not ideal for intensive use. However, those travelling a lot and needing a machine for word processing, web browsing, casual to moderate gaming and most moderately intensive tasks required for work and play, can not find a better one than the Sony Vaio Pro SVP1321X9EB with only 1 kg.

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.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
4500U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

0.94 kg:

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.
