4.0 out of 5 stars
A reasonable touch laptop, with a side of glare., March 29, 2013

This review is from: Sony VAIO T Series SVT14124CXS 14-Inch Touchscreen Ultrabook (Silver) (Personal Computers)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)

When opening up this striking new 14″ Vaio T Series Touchscreen Ultrabook from Sony, before you even power it up you’re greeted with a minimalistic, industrial design and handsome glass edge-to-edge LCD. It also feels extremely solid, with no flex to the system when picked up on any corners.

In the box: Sony Vaio, power cord, a few pieces of instructional paper (yep that’s it)

Before You Even Turn it On:

With the system in front of you, you can tell that this is not vacant to be an Ultrabook you’ll want to use near any light source, windows, or outside. The glare is shocking. Why? Because this has a glass touchscreen over the LCD. And unfortunately, the actual LCD screen is set extremely far back behind the touchscreen glass. You can easily see this gap by looking at an angle toward any of the four corners of the screen when it’s on.. It cannot be understated that this is some severe glare, so buyer beware (hey, that rhymes!).

Second, the keyboard keys are quite shallow. This was somewhat forgivable on Sony’s super-thin and light Vaio Z2 series of laptops, but on this noticeably thicker laptop, I do wish we’d seen a small more tactility in the key presses.

The touchpad is reasonable to use, though not as sensitive and smooth as, say, on a MacBook Air/Pro, and feels a small plastic-y. It’s also not particularly smooth when two-fiddle with scrolling. This is simple to notice when the touch screen is such a joy to scroll up and down web pages with, so vacant back to the touchpad just isn’t much fun for scrolling. For general touchpad-ing, though, it works well enough.

Power-wise, this system does just fine. It’s not a powerhouse with only a Core i3 low-voltage processor, 4GB RAM and the standard integrated Intel HD4000 graphics card, but it never really seems to struggle doing everyday things like surfing, word processing, watching HD videos etc.

Physically, this system is not exactly svelte. At 4.63lbs, it’s no lightweight. It’s also… not exactly thin either. Intel, who “invented” the Ultrabook standard stated that, among additional things, a 14″ or larger computer cannot exceed 0.82″ in thickness to be considered an Ultrabook. Well, Sony’s 14″ T series Ultrabook comes in at…. 0.82 inches. Whew. And if you’re looking at the 15″ T Series Touchscreen Ultrabook, that comes in at 0.9″ thick, so – according to Intel, it’s not even an Ultrabook at all!

Of course, for this 14-inch Ultrabook’s size and weight you are getting a glass touchscreen and an optical drive. But, I question how useful an integrated optical drive is in 2013. I can’t see myself ever using it, but your usage patterns will vary.

Moving back to the screen: Coupled with the significant glare issue, the resolution is also poor: At 1366×768 on a bottom-of-the-barrel TN panel, this is not a fantastic screen by any means. Individual pixels are easily viewable, insignia are faded, washed out, and viewing angles don’t fare any better. My unit tends to completely wash out yellows, and there’s a lot of “blue” in everything onscreen. Be sure to be sitting directly in front of the screen with the angle “just aptly” to get a usable picture. In my testing, to get the best contrast involves tilting the screen all the way back. Unfortunately, the panel’s poor viewing angles come into play here and things turn “dark” at the top of the screen. You can’t win… Just try and find that pleased medium.

Noise levels are not fantastic. Bizarrely, my unit here exhibited some very irritating fan noise for the first few hours of usage despite no hard disk or CPU usage vacant on – just sitting there on the desktop doing nothing. Then, for no reason I can come up with, the fan spun down and is now just mildly irritating versus extremely irritating out of the box. Don’t be fooled, though – even doing HD-video watching on YouTube will send that fan RPM back up. In addition, any Windows-y things that take place in the social class can send that fan RPM up even when you’re not touching anything. My unit has been exhibiting this behavior all day. I don’t doubt some of the blame lies in the honestly significant amount of bloatware this Ultrabook ships with, but it’s something to bear in mind.

On the plus side, the system never got more than unenthusiastic in my lap, which pleased my more tender regions momentously.

Boot-up era are very respectable with the Hitachi (in my unit) 500GB 5400rpm drive coupled with the 24GB SSD Sony outfits this laptop with. A full boot (measured from the instance I pushed the power button) – only 14.6 seconds. Exceptional material. I was quite surprised by this. After putting the system to sleep, wake era are also exceptional, compelling just under 3 seconds.

The sound from this Ultrabook, too, is quite commendable. Clear, loud, and lacking any distortion. There’s even a hint of bass, there! I freely admit to watching the Gangnam Style music video on…

the more I use it the more I like it!, April 1, 2013

This review is from: Sony VAIO T Series SVT14124CXS 14-Inch Touchscreen Ultrabook (Silver) (Personal Computers)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)

When I first received this laptop, I had mixed feelings – it looks gorgeous, but it seemed slower than it should have been given the hardware specs and the hybrid drive. After a week of using it, I can say now that absolutely like it – it is silent, runs smooth and cool and feels very zippy. I don’t like windows 8 – but the laptop itself is dead silent and stays nice and cool – and very responsive. It wakes up from sleep nearly aptly away (I don’t ever shut it down unless I have to, frequently I just let it go to sleep – the power LED will flash when it needs to be plugged in, another nice touch) and it has a long enough battery life so that I don’t have to keep it plugged in all the time.

The brushed aluminum end on the cover is absolutely gorgeous – it looks and feels like a high quality laptop, exactly what you would expect with the Ultrabook designation. But, I’m not sure about the ultrabook qualifications – I read that the minimum specs for that designation was a 5 hr battery life and this one falls a small small of that (that’s why I dinged it a half a star). It’s also a small bit thicker and heavier than what I would have expected from an Ultrabook. But, if it were too much lighter I reckon it might feel kinda cheap and flimsy, so the weight is excellent for me.

I reckon the early feeling that it’s performance was not up to par for the hybrid dive was because it takes a small time to build up the cache on the ssd part of the drive which means that it gets quicker as you use it longer. After a week of use, you can really tell the difference that the hybrid drive makes in alacrity – nearly as excellent as having a pure SSD drive, but you get much more space.

This screen on this sharp and crisp – videos and pictures look fantastic, as do web pages. And I really don’t notice much difference between the 14inch screen and the 15inch screen I had before, but overall, the 14 inch really seems like a much better size for portability. The touchscreen is nice and responsive, but unfortunately when you look at it with the screen off, you can see where your fingers have been all over the screen. not sure much can be done about that.

I will say this – DON”T EVER BUY A WINDOWS 8 COMPUTER WITHOUT A TOUCHSCREEN! It is just too hard to get around and to get the charms bar to pop up lacking a touchscreen – I’ve tried background up additional peoples laptops running windows 8 lacking a touchscreen and it was a complete exercise in frustration. This one is much simpler to navigate around because of the touchscreen.

Apps in the windows 8 store are pitiful tho, very few authoritative apps (google, facebook, pinterest, etc) and the ones they offer instead are cheap cheesy homebrew versions. The kindle app also appears to be broken in the newest release – says it encountered an error trying to register. The lack of quality apps is really disappointing, as is the fact that you can no longer sync google contacts and calendars with the windows apps. As is Microsoft’s choice to make you toggle between the touch interface and the desktop – very kludgy – sometimes I will download and run something from the browser and reckon it is not responding only to toggle back to the desktop and see that it is running there – novice users will have a hard time with this I’m sure. I am hoping they will release a windows 9 soon that fixes all the horrible unease of windows 8, or that Google will release a stand-alone Chrome/Android install for PC’s (and I have read that Windows 8.1 is inn beta and hopefully that will fix some of the shortcomings). I have a feeling that this laptop would absolutely glide if it were running Chrome.

My only complaint, and it’s a minor quibble, is the corners are kinda sharp and not rounded, so sometimes I stab my wrist on the front corners.

This laptop is also cooler and quieter than any laptop I’ve ever used. Even under heavy processor load, the bottom doesn’t get very warm at all, and the fans run very quietly even when kicked up to high.

Overall, I give this laptop a 4.5 out of 5 stars, particularly at this price point, with the only deduction in half a star being for the slightly shorter battery life than you would expect from an Ultrabook. This is doubtless one of the nicest ultrabooks you can get for this price.

*** Update – just for fun I ordered the Corsair Settling of scores 4GB (1x4GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory for sale here on Amazon for $35 ( to up the whole RAM on this to 8gb and it is noticeably quicker now. Install of the memory couldn’t have been simpler, Sony was kind enough to leave the top RAM slot open, so I just unscrewed the small square on the bottom (middle towards the top near the screen) and slid the memory aptly in (memory slides in at a slight angle then you snap it down into…

Sleek, Stylish and High Performance, April 17, 2013

This review is from: Sony VAIO T Series SVT14124CXS 14-Inch Touchscreen Ultrabook (Silver) (Personal Computers)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
If you’re looking for the best technology this is it. For starters its got fantastic looks- aptly away I was impressed by the outside. It’s a high polished silver/aluminum color with a 14 inch touchscreen. Never owned a Sony before so this was a first and I have to say I am quite impressed. For one it’s a gorgeous apparatus, also on the thin side, pretty light weight and simple to handle and carry. Which is a plus with computers/laptops.

Set up was incredibly simple. All you had to do was plug it in, rest is up to you- In view of the fact that it has all the newest technology. It does have Windows 8- which may take some getting used to, you can learn more in ‘Help and Help’ if you’re concerned about that. Has charms, a touchscreen which was different, but I got the hang of it pretty quick, also has your Anti-Virus installed in it, all you have to do is connect to the net and you’re excellent to go.

Some of the additional features it has is an HD Hybrid hard-drive, Rapid Wake, USB Charger, Multi gesture Track Pad and VAIO’s gesture controls which enable users to make hand gestures in front of the web camera to skip songs, turn pages or control the volume. Has VAIO Help- a tool that tunes up, updates and troubleshoots PC issues and a Sony Entertainment Pack with free music, movies and TV shows, Whole over 65 dollars, you get 2 months of Hulu Plus free, 2 months of Slacker Plus and Unlimited free Crackle plus those 3 free movies with it. You can also play back HD make pleased with your camcorder on your compatible huge screen HDTV. Also a ‘PlayMemories’ figure which allows you to make movies complete with transitions and soundtracks in 3 simple steps.

There’s so many different things in this computer you just have to check it out for yourself. When I buy laptops it’s usually another brand, but I was pleasantly surprised by this VAIO, sure it’s ‘different’ but it’s a fantastic apparatus. If you’ve never owned a Sony I’d recommend it. For those who demand the highest levels of design and performance, i’d recommend it. Overall, i’d say it’s a fantastic computer.
