It’s hard to recommend the Sony VAIO T13122CXS. At first glance the device is sleek and beautiful, but looks alone are not enough to carry a device, or justify a $700 price tag. While the notebook excels in certain areas, its faults all but negate those strong points. It offers a beautiful chassis, but the display is underwhelming; and where it has a comfortable quality keyboard, the multi-gesture touch is all but incompatible with Windows 8.

Consumers who want a device that is both aesthetically pleasing and easy to travel with may be pleased by the Sony VAIO T. However, anyone who is looking to do much more than run simple applications and word processing will find the Core i3 dual-core processor wanting. For those consumers who consider the Core i3 to be enough; there is a cornucopia of budget devices that will perform the same functions at a far lower cost, albeit they may not be as pretty.


  • Beautiful Design
  • Compact and Easy to Travle With
  • Comfortable Quality Keyboard


  • Low-End Specs with Mid-Tier Costs
  • Disappointing Display Quality
  • Touch-Pad Gestures Incompatible with Windows 8
