This review is from: SONY VAIO SVT13114GXS Intel Core i5 3317U (1.70GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD 32GB SSD 13.3" Ultrabook Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit
Pros: Looks Feel Quick start-up Upgradable RAM HQ web cam Great speakers
Cons: BIG: -NO BLUETOOTH. I searched in device manager and everything, and there is nothing to say that Bluetooth exists in this laptop.
-I found that 16% of the spacebar wouldn't function when pressed on the corners due to design. (I had to fix it by putting tape under the key)
-Loud fan that runs nearly 100% of the time, even when doing mundane tasks.
-Lower than expected battery life (especially for SSD) of about 4-5hrs
Peeves: -No back-lit keyboard -Track pad is unresponsive on bottom 4mm -Few external ports -Max resolution (1366x768) could be higher
Other Thoughts: I had really high hopes for this laptop. I love Sony products, and I loved an S series VAIO I tried out in Best Buy.
I purchased my T13 looking for a business laptop that would last me through college's wears and tears. When I payed $750 for this laptop I expected a certain quality standard, especially from Sony. The laptop I received felt more like it belonged in the $300-600 range. I really like the feel of the laptop, but I wish the QA team would have worked a bit harder on this one.
The overall computing performance is poor, and could be found on much cheaper models. I would not recommend this laptop to anyone.
My experience with Newegg has been even worse than the laptop, though! With the defective space-bar, track pad, and Bluetooth, they STILL won't give me a refund. They will only exchange it for another defective product. I'm never buying from Newegg again.
