Sony VAIO T13 review: Ultrabook according to Sony

Ultrabook with endurance



When Intel announced its Ultrabook concept last year we had expected to see a model by Sony make its appearance, but we had to wait until now to get our hands on one. Sony's Ultrabook series is called the VAIO T11 and T13, where the number stands for the screen size. We will review the larger of the two, the T13 with a 13.3-inch display. The other one has an 11.6-inch display.

The T13 is available for an average price of £865, and for that you get an Intel Core i5-3317U along with a 128 GB SSD. From Sony's website there are lower-end versions available as well, for a cheaper price.

The screen raises the laptop a little.

The look of the VAIO T13 fits perfectly in the style of the thin Sony laptops. You can clearly see the resemblance with the deluxe VAIO Z. The trademark screen is present, which raises the back somewhat into a more comfortable typing position. The display of the VAIO T13 has a resolution of 1366x768 and is glossy. It's decent screen, but doesn't stand out in terms of colour quality or viewing angles.
