A Sony Vaio Pro!

Let’s review my new laptop. πŸ™‚

Sony’s successor for their well-known Z-series!
It’s incredibly thin, and deserves Intel’s “Ultrabook” label (hence, without touchscreen πŸ˜› ).WP_000427 (2)

  • It features Intel’s latest generation Central Processing Unit: Haswell
  • A nowadays basic amount of ram: 8GB
  • An awesome M.2 PCIe-based Solid State Disk (not really a disk any more, but more fancy PCB)
  • A a 1080p IPS display
  • And a pretty good battery as well!
  • An optional Trusted Platform Module (jej bitlocker!)

So, the first thing you notice when you hold it, it sooooo incredible light (<1kg!)! :-d
Even when you ever held a MacBook Air, you would be stunned. And that’s just awesome ❀

The carbon feels not that strong, but I’m always pretty careful with my tech πŸ™‚
But I can imagine people could actually break the device…

The Hasswell I7 4500u (1.8GHz – 3.0GHZ, running at 0,677 volts and using between 0,93 and 8,78Β  watts of power), is just awesome. On high performance it’s actually really fast, on battery saver it’s really slow. πŸ™‚
8GB of RAM is perfect! You can run multiple VM’s (of course using Hyper-V) simultaneously without any stuttering.

The touchpad performs great as well, it’s plastic (not glass like on Apple devices), so it’s not always that great.

Battery, runs around 7-8 hours. Which is pretty good! πŸ˜€

The presence of a Trusted Platform Module makes that bitlocker works fine πŸ™‚

I’m currently using Windows 8.1 Enterprise x64 on it, it feels just incredibly fast, and that how I like it!

The only thing I’m actually missing, is an Ethernet port… I wouldn’t use it often, but sometimes, it’s just that little bit easier to get into a foreign network =)
So I ordered one on DX.com πŸ™‚
