Stunning gadget at work
Overall User Rating (4.2 Out of 5 based on 23 ratings)
Overall: The Sony Vaio Pro is the among the first laptops to conform to the latest (June 2013) specification of Intel Ultrabook. It runs the 4th-gen Intel Core-i processors, which give it an amazing 6.5 hours of battery life (with about 70% screen brightness and light processing). The best thing about this machine is that it weighs only 1.06 kilos, but the carbon fiber construction feels very sturdy, even though it flexes a bit.
One BIG bummer is that, in India, Sony does not allow customization of this laptop, like it does in the US and some other markets. The RAM and SSD are soldered on to the motherboard, so it's impossible to upgrade. Otherwise I would have liked to get 8 GB of RAM, which is becoming the minimum even for light weight usage these days.
Another thing to note is that the trackpad, which is multi-touch, is nowhere as responsive as the ones on Macbooks (I've read that this is a software issue which Microsoft will fix in Windows 8.1).
For anybody who's looking to run linux on this PC, note that there are some driver issues right now (the wi-fi and NFC don't work without some tweaking), but I expect that the community will fix these very soon.
Overall, its a very good PC for people who want a light machine, with excellent battery life for everyday usage.
