"Good, Light and Great
Sam on 01.03.2013
This is a great Ultrabook! This ultrabook has many capabilities and programs offered by Sony. It is light and very slim. The keyboard is excellent and the noise generated from the laptop is very, very minimal. Only issue is that it does not come with a CD disc drive. You can buy one for around $30-60 so it's not so bad considering it is much lighter without it. "

Hey all, looking for a new notebook/ultrabook that fits the below! This is an addition, not a desktop replacement.
Browsing, movies, web dev / admin productivity and light gaming.
Needs be comfortable lying on the couch browsing, portable enough to take to work every few days / on holidays / to conferences and a battery life that would get me through interstate flights.
Need to have it in my hands before 26 July.
minimum 13" screen
minumum 5 hours batter life.
maximum 2 - 2.5 kilos
Games like Black Ops 2, Bioshock Infinite and Borderlands 2 need to be playable, even if at low res & low settings.
Options so far:
Seems perfect? Can only find a handful of reviews, but the 128G SSD+750G HDD, GT650M, Ivy Bridge i7, 8GB ram, 1600x900 screen for a touch over $1400. What is the catch? The only thing is that apparently the 650m has ddr3 not GDDR5 and is nowhere near as powerful as it could be. I imagine it would still be far better than the Sony's onboard haswell graphics though.
Sony Vaio Pro 13
So close to being perfect, with the exceptions of: storage, ram, onboard graphics. I could live with the 256gb max storage, hell, I could even probably get by with 4Gb of ram, but I don't think the onboard graphics will be enough. Also while it would be a nice gimmick, I'm not sure I need a touchscreen. (And the flex in this thing scares me, even though its by design).
The only other contenders are:
Dellienware M14x - overpriced, immature design, heavy, hot and I will get mocked at work. Yet I'm still really drawn to it?!
MS Surface Pro - This is the wildcard. It could potentially fit the bill. Not sure about graphics performance or battery life though, and I'm not sure that I could live a screen that small.
Something will be bought in the next 4 weeks so please, help me out! Make suggestions/recommendations/criticisms of the above etc
