Battery life is up to an impressive 7.5 and 8.5 hours on the Pro 11 and Pro 13 models respectively, and High-Speed Solid State Drive (SSD)*.

Super Light and Super Thin
These incredibly light Sony Ultrabooks were made possible by using a special uni-direction carbon fibre material for the shell and a lightweight-oriented, slim design. Carrying around this notebook is truly a pleasure. The lightweight, durable design makes it well adapted for use in a variety of situations when on the go. The Sony VAIO Pro continues with its premium connectivity options such as Super Speed USB 3.0, HDMI ports, an audio jack, SD slot, and an included VGA adaptor for legacy devices. Powerful performance is at your fingertips thanks to the 4th generation Intel® Core™ i5 or Core™ i7 Processor* that drives the Windows 8 operating system and its touch interface*.
*Specifications differ by model.
Stylish Toughness and Durability
Generally with mobile PCs there is a trade-off between lightweight and durability. In VAIO Pro these contradictory needs have been remarkably balanced by fabricating the shell lid and bottom with carbon fibre specially-developed by TORAY - a Japanese leading carbon fibre manufacturer. This makes it possible to achieve a lighter weight, greater rigidity and toughness. VAIO Pro is made even stronger by using a Hexa-shell design fabricated using two-dimensional shape-forming. This special fabrication method is very difficult and can only be done by Sony and a few other select manufacturers around the world.
Excellent Quality Display
Equipped with an 11.6" or 13.3" Full HD IPS LCD panel, VAIO Pro lets you comfortably read business documents or enjoy multimedia. A TRILUMINOS Display for mobile panel generates vivid colour with high luminescence and a wide viewing angle that is easy on the eyes. The X-Reality for mobile improves and enhances video playback with realistic image quality and sharpness for pleasurable watching. VAIO Colour Enhance brings out the maximum colour range of the display to get the very best from your images and video.
Twice the Speed
VAIO Pro 13 is equipped with a high-speed mPCIe SSD to accelerate operations for an even more pleasurable computing or entertainment experience. Faster, smoother and more reliable than standard Hard Disk Drives (HDD), mPCIe is not only fast by HDD standard, it’s TWICE the speed of traditional SSD!
Batteries provide dependable power
The add-on sheet battery can extend the productivity of the Pro 11 and Pro 13 for up to 15* and 17* hours respectively.

A sophisticated hinge design is used to provide study support for the screen to hold it steady when the touch interface is used. The design conceals the hinge to emphasise the stylish look.
"Less is more" aptly describes the design of the VAIO Pro. No unnecessary elements can be found in its elegant form. The diamond-cut hinge and hairline finish of the shell exude sophistication. Visual distractions like holes, screws, stickers, and vents have been painstakingly eliminated to achieve a clean, noiseless design. This even includes the bottom, which bears the VAIO logo and was designed to look as good as the rest of the notebook. The VAIO Pro is as stylish as it is functional.
