Sony VAIO Pro 13/11 Notable Feature Highlights

Two things that I love about Sony’s VAIO Pro 13/11 ultrabooks, in addition to their thin and light sizes, are the built-in USB port found on the charging adapter and the port replicator port that has the ability fit a sheet battery on the underside of the machines.

The unique design of the power adapter seems like something that should have been made a long time ago by PC manufacturers. It keeps the actual machine light and uncluttered, while at the same time allowing users to charge peripheral devices.

What’s the point of having an ultraportable if you can’t use it for very long when out on the go. By combining new technologies, such as Intel’s Haswell processors, with a sheet battery, users can possibly extend usage to 25 hours.

VAIO Fit Laptops Will Now Have Better Displays

Sony will be soon refreshing their VAIO laptop line. The company will start moving away from its VAIO E Series product category, and will re-brand this family of mainstream computing machines as the VAIO Fit Series. It’s an attempt by Sony to consolidate the many notebooks found in this grouping as well as to make it easier for consumers to identify with.

What will distinguish VAIO Fit laptops the most from other VAIO branded machines is the display. Sony has incorporated technologies and recent innovations found on Sony BRAVIA televisions into VAIO Fit laptop displays. Most noticeable will be the resolution. No more 1366 x 768 resolutions, which have been found on the majority of laptops these past several years. What consumers will find are higher display resolutions, which mean a better viewing experience.

“We’re really focusing on the power of Sony,” VAIO product manager Travis Furst told The Verge. That means collaboration among the company’s many parts, that “One Sony” every employee seems to want to talk about. The Fit’s most important spec its display, with a nod to Sony’s TV division: they come with 1600 x 900 or 1920 x 1080 touchscreens and nothing else. “We’re not going to offer 1366 x 768,” reps said. “We’ve killed that.”

Watch How a Sony VAIO Duo Is Put Together

An ultrabook is basically a laptop that has a very thin and light design. It’s built to be easy to carry around and to have good battery life. The system is very appropriate for users that are frequently on the move, such as college students and mobile professionals.

With the advent of Windows 8, which places a big focus on touch functionality, ultrabooks have taken on a very interesting evolution of sorts. Many PC vendors started to combine the ultrabook form factor with that of a tablet, creating what they call a convertible tablet. These devices in one way or another, switch back and forth between tablet mode and ultrabook mode

The Sony VAIO Duo 11 is one example of the many hybrid convertible designs out on the market. It incorporates a keyboard slider mechanism that is revealed when the device is in ultrabook mode. Otherwise, the keyboard remains hidden underneath the display when in tablet mode.

Check out this Sony video which documents the assembly of a VAIO Duo ultrabook. You’ll see what components go into this system and you’ll also probably have a better understanding of the design after viewing.

The Microsoft Surface Pro just came out and some might be wondering how it stacks up against similar Windows 8 tablet devices. Well Lisa Gade over at Mobile Tech Review has just done a pretty comprehensive video review comparing the Surface Pro with the VAIO Duo. Both machines have comparable technical specifications. Keep in mind the Surface Pro is has more of the traditional slate tablet design, so it’s a tad smaller and requires keyboard that can be attached on, while the Sony is a hybrid convertible ultrabook with a built-in keyboard.
