The Sony business series laptops have always been ultrabooks even before the ultrabook concept was introduced by Intel in 2011. The new Sony Vaio SV-S series isn’t an exception. It shouts premium in every way imaginable. The Vaio S Series keeps the familiar brushed metallic body with sharp edges from the previous models and is much lighter than what it used to be. Keep in mind though. It is still thicker and heavier than the average ultrabook out there but can be easily carried around.
There is a reason for the extra waist. The Vaio S Series comes with a dedicated Nvidia GeForce GTM graphics card. Its other specs can also be cranked up to the limits of a performance laptop. Being a business class laptop, the S Series is equipped with a finger print scanner. The backlit keyboard and touchpad that are close to perfection. There is also a Blu-ray drive on the right side to set it further apart from the usual ultrabook.
Although the matte screen offers very good visibility outdoors, the lack of a full-HD resolution is a huge let down as it is what you would expect to see when you are going to pay a huge price for a laptop. Apart from that, the on-board storage simply isn’t enough and it has a poor speaker quality. Its contenders in the Ultrabook category have much more to offer in terms of multimedia and are also cheaper.
NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M: Middle class graphics card of the 600M series based on the 28nm GK107 chip (Kepler architecture).
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
3110M: Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, 2.4 GHz core clock (no turbo), includes HD 4000 GPU» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
