Sony Vaio Pro 13
Despite its Wi-Fi woes (Sony has updated drivers to improve dropped signal issues), the Pro 13 remains one of our favorite ultrabooks thanks to its small, lightweight design and long battery life.

The good: The Sony Vaio Pro 13 weighs less than 2.4 pounds and uses a fourth-gen Intel Core i5 or i7 processor to deliver long battery life and very good everyday performance. It has an excellent 13.3-inch 1080p touch screen and is competitively priced for its features.
The bad: The Pro 13, like its competition, has a nonremovable battery (though you can add an external battery), few ports and connections, and integrated graphics only. Memory maxes out at 8GB.
The bottom line: For those who want an excellent ultraportable laptop with more than just the latest Intel processors, the Sony Vaio Pro 13 Touch is it.
