Durability Meets Intelligent Design
The Pro Ultrabook is an expertly engineered, extremely durable powerhouse as a result of meticulous attention to detail and a passion for design. A slender-yet-sturdy carbon fiber exterior provides an impressive level of protection against daily wear-and-tear, while still managing to keep things light – the Pro 13 weighs just 2.34 pounds. The infinite palmrest's extremely low profile provides a comfortable place to rest your hands, while the backlit keyboard's illuminating glow helps minimize typos – even when typing in the dark.
More Brilliant Color than Ever Before
Enjoy a new level of realism and brilliance in photos, movies, and webpages on the Full HD 1920 x 1080 touchscreen LCD. Unique to Sony, the all-new TRILUMINOS Display for Mobile technology creates incredibly true, natural shades of color – just the way you'd want. Vibrant hues appear purer with a wider color range, giving images a heightened sense of depth. Equipped with IPS (in-plane switching) technology, crisp images can be enjoyed from virtually any viewing angle – perfect for sharing an important presentation or the latest blockbuster hit. And with X-Reality for Mobile technology video quality is vastly improved, making your favorite clips and movies appear even sharper.
Everything Just Got Faster.
Buckle up. A super-speedy PCIe SSD drive comes standard on all Pro 13 models. Boot up faster, launch apps at lightning speeds, and enjoy snappier overall performance capabilities versus a traditional mSATA SSD drive. Both VAIO Pro models feature SSD (Solid State Drive) technology with no moving parts, making for a more durable storage solution less prone physical damage.
Enjoy extended work and play with the longer battery life of the VAIO Pro. With the optional large-capacity sheet battery, leave behind the traditional bulky, protruding long-life batteries of the past. Seamlessly attached to the bottom, it operates in tandem with the VAIO Pro for up to double the battery life – meaning you can go for that much longer on a single charge.

Quick on the Draw
Charging your phone or MP3 player is easier and more convenient than ever. Just plug it into the USB sleep charge port: even if your laptop is shut down or unplugged, your device will still draw a charge. And with the USB 3.0 port, you can transfer data from an external hard drive at blazing speeds of up to ten times faster than USB 2.0.
Your stored files, business documents, contracts, and other information are safe from attacks or even physical theft. Get serious about secure information management and enhanced protection for your business with VAIO Pro's TPM (Trusted Platform Module). Built into every VAIO Pro with Windows 8 Pro, TPM stores important cryptographic information, like encryption keys. And because TPM uses its own internal firmware and logic circuits for processing instructions, it's less exposed to external software vulnerabilities.
