Reviews for the Sony Vaio SV-P1321WSNB

80% Sony VAIO Pro 13 Touch (SVP1321WSNB) Review
Source: English version
The Sony Vaio Pro 13 is available at an MRP of Rs. 74,990 which may feel steep for a Core i5 system, but we feel it’s a decent price point considering what is on offer: fast performance, great battery life, light weight, responsive keyboard and touchscreen. Sure we would have loved a larger capacity SSD and a less noisy fan when all cores kick in, but the advantages easily overpower these minor niggles. If you are a business user or someone who wants a light Ultrabook with a great battery life, the Sony Vaio Pro 13 is a great option.

With a weight of just 1.1 kg, the 13 inch Sony Vaio SV-P1321WSNB is an extremely portable touchscreen machine. The design is beautiful, with slim lines and a dark metal look with a subtle, yet beautiful sheen. It is made from lightweight but durable carbon fiber. The Sony Vaio SV-P1321WSNB has a few great design touches that really improve the user experience. As laptops get thinner and thinner, it can get uncomfortable to type on. But here, when the screen is opened, it will raise the keyboard at an angle which will make it more comfortable for extended hours of keyboard use.

The keyboard is laid out well, and the touchpad is nice and responsive. The Full HD screen is absolutely gorgeous, with beautiful bright colors and sharp definition. The touchscreen is nice and responsive, too. Intel Core i5 4200U and integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400 will do great for most everyday tasks. We appreciate the fast wake time of less than 3 seconds. While the system performance is decent, only casual games should be played on this machine. The battery life is decent and will easily last through a workday.  The Sony Vaio SV-P1321WSNB is a great choice for those looking for a well built ultraportable with great looks for light to moderate tasks.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

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

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.

1.1 kg:

Sony is one of the leading manufacturers of electronics, video, communications, video game consoles, and information technology products for the consumer and professional markets.

Sony Corporation is the electronics business unit and the parent company of the Sony Group, which is engaged in business through its five operating segments—electronics, games, entertainment (motion pictures and music), financial services and other. Sony is a notebook manufacturer of medium size according international market shares.

From 2014, Sony has reduced the production of Vaio laptops and finally discontinued them. Sony is still present in the smartphone and tablet market, yet not among the Top 5 manufacturers.

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
