our evaluation

PROS Attractive design, compact, balanced configuration for the price range.
CONS Did not come with Windows 8. Compared with the finest Ultrabooks, it seems that Sony has not struggled much (though beautiful). Could have more disk space.
COMPLETION Good sensitivity of the touchpad. It features software that recognizes gestures.

The silver Sony's machine is a typical ultrabook intermediary whose most striking feature is the flash memory drive and HD working together.
 The result was Infolab in satisfactory performance. The metallic visual style is cute, but the body has a 1.6 pound weight above the desired 13.3-inch ultrabooks. Instead, the sides no room for network port and HDMI video outputs, D-Sub, which dispenses adapters. The Vaio's battery life also deserves praise. Evaluation Giovana Penatti In SVT13115FB, ultrabook series Vaio, Sony chose not to use the best possible configuration and market a machine with intermediate equilibrium price. But that does not mean it's a computer weak. The processor is an i5 with Ivy Bridge (3317U), there are 500 GB HDD storage and a 32GB SSD to ensure speed. This all meant that he had a satisfactory performance during use, despite being fourth in the benchmark. Benchmark PCMark 7 (in points)higher bars indicate better performance

The video card is an onboard Intel Graphics 4000, which is pretty much standard in the category.
 As the overall system performance, the graphics showed intermediate performance, but satisfactory.Benchmark 3DMark 06 (in points) higher bars indicate better performance

Speaking of usability, it is a very nice notebook.
 The keyboard is comfortable, with firm keys in style bubblegum and good spacing. The question mark and the shortcut bar need to be typed, but this should not be a big hassle, since the adaptation is fast. The touchpad is also great, with excellent sensitivity, but the format may displease some users, as it is narrow vertically (measuring 9.8 by 5.5 cm). The button exists, but is "embedded", ie there is no demarcation and full clickable touchpad. account the visual favor points for the Vaio. It is all silver, brushed aluminum. The base appears to be plastic, but keeps the look chic and sophisticated which is standard on ultrabooks. A feature itself is quite a chrome strip on the lid with two rubber bands. When you open it, the support slightly raises the keyboard and the computer gets even more points typing comfort. He took a whole day to work on Vaio ultrabook without having virtually no discomfort. The only problem was the armrest while typing at the end, because the corners are not rounded corners and bothered by the time of use. Sony opted to include some connections that are not very common in the category. For example, there's a Gigabit Ethernet adapter without, diversity of memory cards (SD / SDHC / SDXC / MS / MSPro) and D-Sub, HDMI for video beyond and two USB (one 2.0 and one 3.0). A 13.3-inch screen is matte and has a resolution of 1366 by 768 pixels, common in ultrabooks. Although there are models with higher resolutions, the picture quality is not lost. The speakers are on the bottom front and emit sound with good definition and average volume. Battery life in intensive surprised: he lasted two hours and 18 minutes without being plugged into a power source. If the intention is to get it in my backpack, one must consider the weight of 1.6 pounds, slightly higher than the competition, but that is hardly excessive. Battery life in intensive bars indicate better performance more

One of the biggest attractions, at least in theory, is the application VAIO Control Gestures.
 As the name says, it allows the computer to recognize gestures with a webcam and perform some tasks such as increase or decrease the volume, move forward and back pages, pictures or music. But in practice, the software does not work as well at all times - there were times when the response was great and others where nothing happened.
