2018 Vaio S Review - the 1kg Ultrabook with Horsepower and Ports MobileTechReview
Published on Feb 24, 2018
Lisa Gade reviews the 2018 edition of the Vaio S 13.3” Ultrabook. This thoroughly modern laptop weighs just 2.34 lb/ 1.06kg and is slim and stylish yet it packs ports you’d usually find only on mobile workstations like Gigabit Ethernet and VGA. The magnesium alloy clad Vaio S runs Windows 10 Pro on Intel 8th gen 15 watt quad core U series CPUs (Core i5-8250U and Core i7-8550U) with Intel HD 620 graphics. It has enhanced cooling for longer periods of Turbo Boost (called Vaio TruePerformance), and faster performance like the Dell XPS 13 9370, but with cooler core temperatures. It has a matte full HD display, fast PCIe NVMe SSDs, up to 16GB RAM and common ports like two USB-A 3.0, HDMI and a headphone jack. Pricing starts at $1199. Sony sold their Vaio PC business several years ago, and the engineers transferred to the new Vaio corporation based in Japan. Many Vaio models are available in Japan where the laptop is manufactured, but only a few like the Vaio S, are sold in countries like the US. Their US website is http://us.vaio.com and the Japan website is vaio.com. In the US, Microcenter and Amazon typically carry their products.
