Sony Vaio has remained as a premium brand for notebooks. This year, the tech giant has solidified its position as one of the best ultraboom manufacturers around. People caring about style and functionality have always commended Sony for bringing both. This time, Sony released their Sony Vaio Pro 13 and it is just as exceptional as the previous offerings. Can the upcoming MacBook Pro 13 do some damage?
Sony Vaio Pro 13
As the name implies, the Sony Vaio Pro 13 features a 13-inch display. It is one of the thinnest and the lightest ultrabooks around. It spans 17 mm and weighs 1.060 kg. This is the standard of portability that most ultrabooks are aiming for. Sony has already done it.
The design is just as appealing because of carbon fibre body. The body also features sharp edges which add a sleek appeal to the device. The black cover of the device also compliments the Vaio logo. The logo stands out from the chrome giving people a stylish laptop to work with.
One of the most impressive components about the device is the Triluminous display that Sony patented and equipped the Vaio Pro 13. Now, people can watch 4K videos on their laptops. The full HD display gives people the chance to view images with more vivid color and details. By far, analysts agree that is the best yet for any ultrabook.
The best thing? Vaio Pro 13 has touch enable features. The audio is also exceptional but people will not see where the speakers are. This is the kind of trick that should amaze many laptop users. Other specs include backlight keyboard separated by a matt finish surface, assist key and green power button on the body.
This ultrabook pro also comes with Vaio Care software. This helps users fix regular maintenance issues. Other apps include Sony Music's Live and Vaio movie creator.
MacBook Pro 2013
With the release of the iPhone 5s and 5c, there are now rumors saying that Apple could be releasing the newest MacBook Pro line sometime around Oct. Some of the reported and speculated features include:
- Improved battery life - the MacBook Air and iMacs got Haswell so Apple will likely include Haswell in their MacBook Pro. Haswell chips are best known for improving and extending battery life by as much as 70% to 80%. This can mean more than 12 hours of battery life.
- Better WiFi - MacBook Air got 802.11ac and it provided faster connection. Apple may well be including this.
- PCIE storage - MacBook Air and iMacs got improved and faster storage. MacBook Pro 2013 is reported to have the same storage format.
Which will it be?
