This review is from: SONY VAIO Pro 13 Intel Core i5 4GB 128GB SSD 13.3" FHD Touchscreen Ultrabook Carbon Silver (SVP13213CXS)
Pros: Some people I had read complained about the wifi and a few other issues that seemed to be addressed by running some firmware/driver updates. Boot times are insanely fast, if you ever turn it off which is kind of rare for me. My work takes me in and out of clients offices and I just love the portability and speed with which I can get back to what I was doing. It was between this and the mac book air when I bought it but from what I gather using windows on boot camp is not working great on the newer MacBook air's and running windows as a vm is too much of an annoyance. This also has much better resolution than a MacBook air. If the battery is fully charged I can typically get through a day or most of my work day with it unplugged, just depends what I'm working on. The backlit keyboard is pretty nice to type on. The materials overall seem very high quality.
Cons: Main con for me is the touch pad, it is too large and too sensitive while typing. Had to get a mouse and I just keep it disabled. I'd like an Ethernet port but its pretty typical on the ultrabooks not to have one.
