Full form factor laptops have died a death in the last...
Sony VAIO S Series 13 (SVS13112FXW) Review
The Sony VAIO S Series 13 is a lightweight laptop with fast performance, good battery life and a built-in DVD drive.
(3.5 out of 5)
Not everyone on the market for a 13-inch laptop wants an Ultrabook. Some shoppers would prefer a faster full-voltage Intel processor and a built-in DVD drive. The Sony VAIO S Series 13 offers just that, plus the option to add powerful discrete graphics and an extra-capacity sheet battery. Our $899 configuration sports a 2.5-GHz Core i5 processor, 6GB of RAM and a 640GB hard drive. While this 3.8-pound machine doesn’t have an SSD like Ultrabooks, it does promise to wake from sleep in just 2 seconds. Does this premium thin-and-light notebook satisfy?
