Comment:
I wanted a lightweight computer and after reading many reviews selected the Sony Vaio Pro13. The ultrabook is everything I was looking for - fast; great screen quality; backlight on the keyboard; very light weight, long battery life, HOWEVER, the network connection issues abound. I have owned the computer for 7 months and am having the computer repaired for the third time for this same issue. Sony clearly needs to address this item as it is a major malfunction with the computer. My old laptap is a Dell, which is the brand I should have stuck with, and is the one I go to when the Sony is in for repair. Since I can't trust that the Sony will work continuously for more than a few months, I would not recommend this to a friend.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I bought one of these to try out for our company before we ordered about 20 of these for our sales team. We had trouble with WiFi being reliable. We also had touchpad tracking issues. The laptop has to be on a solid surface for the touchpad to work correctly. On the Internet we found that many people are having the same issue with this Sony laptop. Because of the issues and my sales people bugging me to try a Macintosh, we decided to try a MacBook air. Consumers reports also shows the Macintosh to be superior in reliability and customer service. After two months of rigorous testing, we feel the MacBook Air is better suited for our needs. We have had no issues whatsoever, get about 50% more battery life, and overall feel the operating system is superior without all the hassles and headaches.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Just opened the box a few hours ago, and I'm speechless. This laptop will be a great competitor to MacBook Air. It is unbelievably light and thin, and according to the specs, hides a lot of horse power behind the beautiful facade.<br /><br />The extended sheet battery is very nifty, providing a slight tilt angle and space for venting. <br /><br />Together with the external DVD drive and a USB 'docking station', it replicates my old Vaio Z series laptop, but a lot lighter.<br /><br />Interestingly, the sound quality is great, much better than on my old laptop, even though it is so much lighter and thinner!
