It is certainly a Sony Vaio Pro Vs Apple MacBook Air competition. Sony Vaio Pro appears in 11, 13 inches and look very beautiful indeed

Is Apple’s MacBook Air the only reliable notebook out in stores? No, it is now getting many serious rivals. MacBook Air is gradually losing its sheen as a fanatic notebook. A lot of competitors from the Windows 8 side are arriving to the racks now. The latest one is a brilliant Sony Vaio Pro series, which includes 11-inch and 13-inch models in reply to MacBook Air’s 11 and 13-inch versions.

The 11-inch Sony Vaio Pro comes with an 11-inch FullHD IPS display. This high clarity display screen is one of key attributes that will tempt people to go for this notebook over MacBook Air 11, which is expected to get a new Retina display this year. The Vaio Pro is powered by an Intel Core i7-4500u processor that boasts 1.8GHz cloaking speeds.

The Sony Vaio Pro 11, SVP11215PXB, is in fact a sharp looking Ultrabook with enough power to beat its MacBook Air rival. Analysts have lauded its gorgeous hi-res touch-screen display and it is hugely thin and lightweight. The system further features NFC (Near Field Communication) support to simply gain edge over MacBook Air 11 in all aspects.

The 13.3-inch version of Vaio Pro features the company’s new Triluminos display technology which is borrowed from its popular TV sets. The device as you can assume simply targets Apple’s MacBook Air 13. It is built of carbon-fiber and is certainly thinner and lighter thanks to 0.68-inch depth and 2.34-pound shiny body.

Even if thinner, the Sony Vaio Pro 13 highlights a couple of USB 3 ports, an HDMI, micro SD card slot, and a lot more. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, NFC, and a revamped Intel Wireless Display (WiDi). The starting price of the Vaio Pro 11 and 13 are respectively at $1150 and $1250, meaning that they are a bit pricier than their MBA alternatives.
