Sony’s ultrabook debut makes a strong impression with adequate performance, strong audio quality, and an attractive design. With a third-gen Intel Core i5 CPU and Intel’s Smart Response Technology at the helm, users will experience a number of fancies including faster boot-ups and longer battery life. However, it’s the smaller features that make the Vaio T series a joy to play with: Dedicated keys for diagnostic settings, web browsing, and media playback are great additions, alongside the multi-gesture touchpad.
