The Sony VAIO T Series is very thin and light ultra-book and makes for a great travel partner. It sports a brushed aluminum metal look and it is pretty sturdy for sustaining rough use. It has a speedy wake up response from sleep mode.
Sony has also loaded the VAIO T Series with a host of useful programs to help you organize your photos, videos and documents. It is also integrated with gesture control which can be very useful when used with the integrated webcam. It also has a bright display and the keyboard is nicely spaced. The only negative points are the missing backlight facility and the optical drive.
It is a little pricey but has a good battery life. Overall, it is a superior machine with decent picture and sound quality and some good apps thrown in together.
