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.

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

Sony leveraged its heritage of delivering TVs with great picture quality, and the new VAIO Pro and VAIO Duo lines feature Full HD (1920 x 1080) displays.

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.

Sony’s New Flagship Laptop: The VAIO Pro

There are some technology buffs that still lament the death of Sony’s VAIO Z Series. This family of ultraportable laptops featured the latest and best technologies and components available at the time, and it packed them all in a super thin and light form factor. Unfortunately, these systems were also expensive beyond a doubt. That’s why they were discontinued over a year ago, and since then, Sony has not put out anything comparable. That is until now.

Introducing the VAIO Pro, a new product line that’s supposed to take up the mantle of being a respectable flagship laptop. VAIO Pro systems are actually ultrabooks by definition, but they’ve been decked out and resemble nothing like what most people consider ultrabooks. From terrific audio/visual highlights to fast performance found in their innovative and new PCIe Solid State Drives, users will have no reason to not fall in love with these machines. Even the pricing for the various VAIO Pro models is decent, a lesson learned from the past.

In a sense, the Z is still dead: to this day, there is no Z series in Sony’s lineup. But there is the new Pro line, and it more or less picks up where the Z left off. (It takes after the business-friendly S series, too.) Starting at $1,150 and available in 11- and 13-inch sizes, these machines use carbon fiber to achieve an even lighter design (under two pounds for the 11-inch model). Both pack fresh Haswell processors, with 1080p screens, NFC and backlit keyboards all standard.

Sony VAIO Pro Ultrabooks Feature Enhanced Audio & Video Feature Sets

Sony’s VAIO Pro and Duo are ultraportable computing solutions worth considering if audio/visual features are what you’re into. These systems have been enhanced by a handful of Sony proprietary technologies to to deliver an awesome computing experience.

Take for example, innovations found on Sony’s BRAVIA TVs. Have you heard of Triluminous display technology? If not, then you’ll soon be hearing more of it. The technology basically provides a wider spectrum of colors. Throw in Sony’s X-Reality engine, which sharpens images, and you’ve got a display that’s unmatched on the current market.

The quality of a good number of laptop speakers are for the most part mediocre. There’s not much to expect, considering how small and compact these machines have to be. However, with VAIO Pro ultrabooks, audio is tweaked with ClearAudio+ technology.

Both the Pro and Duo lines feature a wonderfully named “full HD Triluminous display” with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080. The new screens make “colors purer and more distinct.” The technology goes with Sony’s X-Reality for mobile technology, which analyzes images and reproduces pixels that are missing. The devices also have Sony’s ClearAudio+ technology that lets you hear dynamic bass sounds with more clarity and less distortion.

VAIO Pro Ultrabooks Learn From Lessons of Old

Sony’s VAIO Z Series has been MIA for quite some time. For a while, the product line served as Sony’s flagship laptop category, with sleek designs and performance components built into every machine. Unfortunately, the ultraportables were also extremely expensive and beyond the reach and price points of many.

It seems like with the debut of the VAIO Pro Series, Sony is attempting to spark interest again into its premium line of ultraportable product offerings. Hopefully the company has learned from his past mistakes. Here’s one take on the improvements that have been made.

The new Vaio Pro (11-inch and 13-inch models; $1150 and $1250 starting configs, respectively; out June 9 in black and silver) does away with almost all of the crap that made the Z so unusable. That too-shallow, too-small, too-awful keyboard is gone, replaced with a usable, typable island keyboard with nice spacing and travel distance. The cramped and tiny and also totally unusable trackpad is replaced with a big glass one that seemed to work reasonably well when we saw it a few months back, when its software was still in the early stages. The screen is a very nicely balanced 1080p. And it retains its lightness with the carbon fiber body, but adds an aluminum wrist plate to give the unit a more solid feel. (There was a good amount of flex in the keyboard as we used it, but Sony seemed to imply that it would be fixed for final production; we’ll let you know when we get review units in.) The 11-inch weighs 1.92 pounds, and the 13-inch 2.34 pounds. They also have the Vaio’s traditional optional and ugly sheet battery, which doubles battery life.

Innovative VAIO Pro Ultrabook Power Adapter Doubles as a WiFi Router

Sony has definitely come up with a couple of innovative features with its VAIO Pro ultrabook line. Recently we wrote on how the power adapters double as charging USB ports. Now we find out that there’s also a power adapter (probably sold separately) on Sony’s website that allows for the the power adapter to function as a wireless Internet router. Sony’s been really thinking outside the box and these creative innovations, and it makes you wonder why nobody has come up with these ideas before.

The idea according to Sony, is that the power adapter can double as a Wi-Fi router, turning your hotel’s Ethernet connection into your own on-the-go hotspot. Handy if you want to use your phone for emails and web while you’re lying in bed.
