    Hey Guys,

    I am gonna buy a Vaio Pro.

    The new Sony Vaio Pro has an option of non-touch screen model. But i couldnt find proper spec for the display. Anybody knows, is it a IPS screen and matte or glossy?

    The touch screen model has glossy IPS display panel and anti-glare surface. I see it on the shop, it is neither glossy nor matte. But if the non touch screen model is matte IPS, i would prefer it for sure.

    I wonder, the display panel of non touch screen model and touch screen panel are different or not.

    By the way, on sony-asia i've found the weight of the two models. The non touchscreen model was about 120gr lighter than the other, maybe this is a clue for you.

    SVP13212SA : VAIO® Pro 11/13 : VAIO™ Notebook : Sony Asia Pacific

    SVP13213SA : VAIO® Pro 11/13 : VAIO™ Notebook : Sony Asia Pacific

    Product Comparison : VAIO™ Notebook : Sony Asia Pacific

    Lastly, does anybody see any review of non touch screen Vaio Pro?

    Thanks,

    Oner

    The mass market simply doesn't need massive compute power increases every refresh anymore. For someone that just surfs the internet, types up documents, and other very basic tasks, even a Core 2 Duo will run without much issues, let alone a Haswell. Why waste money on a new computer when a 5yo computer works just well? That cuts into revenue, and it doesn't help that people have reduced spending after 2008 and so. IMO, the only relevant advance in technology wad the introduction of SSDs and later on SSDs turning into a commodity, since storage was in desperate need of a performance increase.

    Can we get an updated 2013 version on this list? The Sputnik should be on here.

    I love how Core 2 Duos, release 5-6 years ago, are still plenty relevant today. T7250s running like a champ in some older campus pc's :p

    This is a very old thread and people have long stopped paying attention to it. The member can see how old it is and just because you've made a new post, I'm afraid most will ignore it. Instead I recommend you begin a new thread, using the first nine words of your post, above (up until the comma) as the title of your new thread. I don't have any advice for you, but I'm sure some will.

    > Poor battery life
    > Weak performance
    > Limited OS
    > Poor driver support, can't install Windows, very proprietary Linux drivers
    > Company has no reputation on building quality laptops
    > 4:3? This is not 2004. 16:9 or 16:10 would be better.
    > Not Haswell. Normally not a problem, but hey, since all you will do with a laptop like this is browse the web, Haswell offers no disadvantages.
    > 1TB of Data from the company that likes to sell it to advertising firms the most. NO THANKS.
