I have had this ultrabook for about a month now. I have the i7 with 8GB RAM and 256GB PCIe SSD. The 1080p touchscreen is amazing - very sharp and very bright (it covers 93% of RGB color gamut). The keyboard is amazing to type on - very few errors. I do not feel the flex while typing on this thing. The boot up time is about 2-3 seconds and resume time is less than 2 seconds. Battery lasts about 7 hours for me at about 60% brightness (I have optimal settings on the battery so it charges only to 80% and not the full 100%). I plan to get the sheet battery. The audio quality is great. Below 70% volume, it isn't very audible, but above that it just suddenly sounds amazing. I have not had any issues with Wi-Fi so far. It connects in no time and has never dropped the signal. The materials used are of high quality and this thing isn't prone to scratches at all like aluminum can be. Best of all, I love how thin and light this is. As for the downsides: The touchpad does not always register a tap (right/left clicks are fine) but you get used to it - tap in the center of the touchpad and it is fine. A driver update should fix this. The fan does run loud at times, especially when watching videos, but otherwise is quiet. A non-issue for me. I highly recommended this for someone looking for a high end ultrabook. There is also a review by MobileTechReview on YouTube about this laptop. Worth a watch.

Just got the new 11.6" Vaio Pro. Its form factor is very nice. BUT: the machine I got has no backlit keyboard despite what the online spec said. A Sony tech checked it and confirmed that the machine I had been sent has no such feature. Apparently, other configurations of Vaio Pro 11 may have it - if you are lucky, you may get one. Seems random and with no bearing on the price. Can't be just an issue with the bare-bones configuration as I paid extra for a custom-built one. I had concerns about the wi-fi connectivity issue - no problem there, but I am pretty sure that being sent a machine with a missing feature is considered misleading advertising. This is not an issue of a bug or kink due to new technology. It seems like short-changing the customer. Didn't expect that from Sony.

      Since I'm a PC person, I wanted to go non-Apple, but wasn't sure that I would like Windows 8. In the end, it's not a problem to adjust to - especially with the touch screen of the Sony Vaio. Can't beat how lightweight the computer is!

      How Fix the Wifi Issie

      By Kaleem

      from Pakistan

      Comments about Sony VAIO Pro 11 Black Ultrabook Computer:

      Dear Friends... I also buying the Sony Vaio Pro 13 laptop... so same issue of Wifi some times working and some times not working.... but i find the solution. First update the Wifi driver and then install the Wifi Driver patch then don't connect any kind of device with usb ports just like a Wirless Mouse or Wirless headphone etc... After that Wifi is working fine and Internet is stable....

      How to make good things...bad...but VERY BAD.

      By CocoaBeach

      from Cocoa Beach, Florida, USA

      Comments about Sony VAIO Pro 11 Black Ultrabook Computer:

      I am a regular Sony customer: cellphone, pad, camera, laptop....but i have to say this is one of the most disappointing laptops i have ever purchased from Sony. After 10 days i am shipping it back today. Why such a "potentially" great laptop it is so badly manufactured?. Windows 8 only make things worst. Wifi problem it is just appalling. Keyboard quality...well, let us say there is no quality there. Screen and performance...below average. Touch screen? This is cool i can say. Extra battery? So badly designed!. By the way the laptop keeps crashing and restarting at least once a day. Fashion looking, super light...? yes absolutely, just by the looks this laptop is a pure 10, but looks are not enough. I will keep my old (2 yrs old) Sony laptop that is great and will wait for a better option. Ah! Once again, Windows 8? Come on! You can do better than this.

      Comments about Sony VAIO Pro 11 Black Ultrabook Computer:

      Just returned mine last week do to a multitude of problems, all surrounding around sony software. Wifi drivers would disappear on wake up. However, whenï»? downloaded from intel, it did not have the same issue. Latest Bios update result in loss of brightness control after wake up. Need to reinstall update everytime to regain control. Viao care gave me the completely wrong touchpad driver, thus loosing gesture control. Tried it on 2 machines and both had the same issues. I'd stay away.

      Seriously! The wi-fi never works smoothly. The connection is horribly slow and keeps dropping. I like everything about this laptop except the wi-fi connectivity. Thousands of people have the same problem with this laptop and Sony doesn't have an answer. DO NOT BUY! If sony fixes this issue, I will make sure to come back and update this.

      Fixes are Available for "Issues" of Wifi and fan

      By hopethishelpssomeone

      from Whitefish, MT

      Comments about Sony VAIO Pro 11 Black Ultrabook Computer:

      I just got this laptop and absolutely LOVE the size and weight of it. Amazing ultrabook with power! I originally ordered the Dell XPS 12 convertible touch and returned it to get this. I am SO glad I did!! The touch screen works so smoothly. When I first received the laptop, I was plagued with the wifi issues and loud fan, which is frequently reported on blog sites about this product. I fixed the wifi issues by: (1) running a firmware update from Sony's website; (2) updating the intel driver from intel's website - I used version 16.1.5 for windows 8 64-bit and it worked great; (3) run microsoft updates (which should run automatically once you update the firmware. After doing these things, I am having no problem with my wifi connection. You can also change the fan setting in the Vaio Control Center. Play with the fan settings and power settings and you shouldn't have to listen to that fan run constantly. I have to say, when I first got the computer I was so excited about every part of it except the fan and wifi. Now that I have those issues fixed, I will give this computer 5 stars. I can't believe how sleek, light and powerful this thing is!

      from NY

      Comments about Sony VAIO Pro 11 Black Ultrabook Computer:

      I love this laptop. I won't get in to the details about what I love, because there is one astoundingly bad problem. The WiFi is pathetic. Look it up, just google "Vaio Pro wifi" and see how many people have gathered even on Sony's forum complaining about the poor WiFi. A machine like this is premium. It is high end. It doesn't even have an ethernet port. Functional WiFi is absolutely essential to a laptop. I suggest wait until this gets fixed. Otherwise, don't buy.

      Could be a great computer

      By Vonroach

      from Houston, TX

      Comments about Sony VAIO Pro 11 Black Ultrabook Computer:

      This computer had the potential to be great, but now it is only mediocre. The weight is fantastic, as is the keyboard feel. After resetting some of the touchpad variables, it works very, very well. The screen is beautiful, and while Windows 8 takes some getting use to, it seems to be a fine operating system. I wish the battery would last a bit longer. But the biggest failure of this computer is that my Wifi drops my internet connection several times a day. I have upgraded to the latest (16.1.5.2) yet it still drops about every two hours. There is much chatter about this online (just search for Sony Vaio Drops Internet Connection), and I have talked to the Sony techs (who are very friendly) twice, but so far there is no resolution. Given the fact that there is no physical internet connection available on this machine, this is a tremendous flaw.

      VAIO PRO 11

      By doris

      from Midwest

      Comments about Sony VAIO Pro 11 Black Ultrabook Computer:

      Love it! Pros: Beautifully light, portable and powerful. Great for business travel or taking work home when I need to crunch numbers. Cons: - I had a wifi connection issue shortly after purchase. I discovered a Windows update ran before a Sony firmware update. The Windows update reset the wifi settings. I reconfigured the system to factory fresh and ran the Sony firmware update first. This did the trick for me. No more wifi issues. The diagnosis took 90 minutes. The fix was pretty quick. I wish Sony had installed the firmware before shipping. - Windows 8 isn't great--still, I love the touchscreen. I'm comfortable in Win 8 desktop mode (which looks like Win 7#. I look forward to Windows 8.1. I'm sure it will get better. - Small screen text. I'm not sure if this is a technical problem with the VAIO or with me getting older. I adjusted text size and that worked for me. I was able to overcome the cons within the first day or two. After those fixes, the experience has been very positive. The VAIO is a great travel companion. It's more powerful than the MacBook Air, except for battery life. But with the extended battery #which I bought), the VAIO still weighs less than the Air and has longer battery life.

      If i could give this computer ZERO STARS I would. Horrible computer. Just like someone else said its just a VERY expensive $2000 paperweight. Even paid for extended care and cant get sony to care for anything.

I WANT MY MONEY BACK. Customer service is horrible. DONT BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I could go on and on. The only positive thing about this laptop is the weight and size otherwise worthless. Im so frustrated I cant even explain how bad this is. I have never written a review before but this computer is SO BAD I had to WARN others not to WASTE MONEY. Did I say customer service is HORRIBLE so is technical support
