    Default New Vaio Pro 13 SVP1322C5E with wifi (a/b/g/n/ac): how is the wifi ?

    Hi everyone, I am interested by the new Vaio Pro 13 SVP1322C5E (available on Sony Store UK and France)
    The model indicated it has the new AC wifi (a/b/g/n/ac). Does anybody with this model can confirm it doesn't have the wifi issues of the older version (a/b/g/n)
    Thanks

    Hi. I've ordered this exact model, estimated delivery is the 19th. I can update with results after some tests.

    I wonder if Sony will release the new AC wifi here in the U,S, I don't see this on any of their Pro 13's on the U.S. Sony site. With Sony selling their VAIO brand, I'd like to purchase their most latest Pro 13 possible. Any conformation when it's due out here in the U.S.?

    I ordered the same (Sony Vaio Pro 13 - SVP1322C5E) and it'll be sent between 14.02 and 19.02
    I'll let you know as soon as I get it. In the meantime, if someone has some news, just let me know.

    Ciao!

    I also order it before just before the offer on the 256 SSD expired.
    Let's hope the rework on the wifi give decent performance !!
    I should get it around begin 2nd week of march, keep you in touch...

    according to their announcement at CES, the Spring refreshes of the Duo and Pro lines in the U.S. will be in April.

    Hey!
    Something new on the wifi-issues in the refreshed Vaio Pro?

    Yeah, I got it inhouse now. I had some issues in the beginning with 2.4Ghz band with max. speeds of 2-3 Mbit down, 2 Mbit up. After loading all Windows updates and latest wifi driver (16.10.0.5) it improved for a while, but after a while it went back down again. Though today I opened it up and so far it's been fine on 2.4Ghz. On the 5Ghz band it appears to be no issues. However I only seem to get a link speed of 144Mbps and I'm about 1m from the router, router is set to 802.11n only. This is normal perhaps? I was maybe expecting a higher link speed, 300 Mbps or higher perhaps. The router is Asus RT-N66U.
    Copying a file from my desktop to the vaio yields an average speed of 5-5.5 MBps (40ish mbits), the other way round yields 6-7 MBps (56ish mbits).
