This Ultrabook is a refurbished model but comes with a full 12-months warranty. It runs on a dual-core Intel Core i3 processor, the i3-2367M, clocked at 1.4GHz and based on the Sandy Bridge architecture.
There’s 4GB of RAM, a 32GB SSD supplemented by a 500GB hard disk drive, a 13.3in 1,366 x 768 display, an Intel HD Graphics 3000 video solution, Windows 7 Home premium, a webcam, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a card reader, two USB ports, a battery life of up to seven hours and a HDMI port.
Sony has also bundled a number of applications (which we shall not call bloatware) with the T13: these include a flurry of Vaio apps (PlayMemories Home, Media Gallery, Gate, Care, Transfer Support, Update, Smart network, Remote Keyboard and Remote play with Playstation 3).
That model was unveiled back in May 2012 and has an aluminium/magnesium allow chassis.
