Sony VAIO Laptop/Ultrabook Ecoupons: 8/4 to 8/11

Sony’s VAIO Fit and Pro Series Laptops and Ultrabooks have been out for a couple of months now and until now there haven’t been many promotional offers for any of these systems.  This is probably because they are still relatively new models and typically people don’t mark down new models until they’ve had some time to gain some public traction.

Now that we’re in August and Back-to-School season is upon us, Sony is starting to make concerted efforts to push Fit and Pro machines into the hands of students going back to school.  Right now you can get $50 off many prebuilt VAIO Fit models.  There’s also a special offer on VAIO Pro models that allows shoppers to get $200 off a bundle with one of these systems.

Sony Improves the VAIO Duo The Second Time Around

PCMag has a product review on Sony’s VAIO Duo 13, a second generation and attempt at designing an ultrabook convertible. For those that aren’t familiar with the VAIO Duo product line, the computing solutions found in this collection feature Windows 8 devices that employ a Sony Surf Slider mechanism. The design essentially has a touchscreen display slide out and up while revealing a keyboard. The VAIO Duo operates as a slate tablet or an ultrabook.

With the Sony VAIO Duo 13, Sony improves upon the design of its predecessor, the Sony VAIO Duo 11 (D11213CX). This model offers a larger screen and a smaller hinge, and it’s outfitted with a fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor. The biggest improvement has to do with battery life; it managed over eight hours on our battery rundown test.

What makes the new Sony VAIO Pro and Duo machines different from all other ultrabooks on the market today?

Smackdown Between the Sony VAIO Pro & MacBook Air

Over the past couple of years we’ve seen plenty of laptops and ultrabooks that have tried to dethrone Apple’s MacBook Air as the standard for ultraportable computing. Not many, if any have stood out, to being comparable until now. Based on performance specifications and budget, Sony’s VAIO Pro actually stacks up pretty well against a similarly configured MacBook Air. The showdown between these two systems can be fairly called a draw. There are areas where the Sony VAIO Pro definitely wins hands down, such as in the display department, but there are also areas where its lacking (not by much) when compared to the MacBook Air.

In the end, it comes down to preference, as cliche as that sounds. Because the differences are so marginal, it ultimately comes down to the choice of operating system, which is another unending debate in itself. Lisa Gade has an extremely interesting and thorough review, as well as a video documenting the different highlights found and compared for each machine.

Today we compare the first two fourth generation Intel Haswell Ultrabooks, both from respected makers who offer brand cachet, quality, style and a thin and light experience. On the one hand we have the machine that started it all: the MacBook Air. Before there were “Ultrabooks” (a name invented by Intel’s marketing department to help Windows machines cash in on the trend the Air started), there was the MacBook Air. At a hair under 3 pounds and thin enough to slip into a manila envelope, the MacBook Air captured imaginations and pocketbooks. In the other corner, we have Sony, who even before the MacBook Air, specialized in insanely thin and light machines that used exotic materials like carbon fiber and lightweight metals, and combined it with keen styling and understated elegance (Sony Vaio X, Sony Vaio Z and others). The newest result of Sony’s more than decade love affair with super thin and light laptops? The Sony Vaio Pro 13. For those of you who like to travel really small, both machines are also available in 11 inch versions.
