I am thinking of purchasing a Sony Vaio Pro 13 Ultrabook. The specs would be:
- Intel i5-4200U @ 1.6GHz
- 8GB RAM
- 256GB SSD
All the reviews I have read mention "web browsing is fine" - which you would expect - but none of the reviews (obviously) test VS2012.
Would someone be able to comment on how capable the processor would be for developing in Visual Studio 2012? I think the battery life would be good- I am worried about raw CPU performance when running programs.
My laptop has an i7 620M @ 2.66GHz- which is 3 years old now, but it runs VS2012 absolutely fine - so I'm not sure if I can assume the Haswell mobile CPU would be of similar performance to my current CPU.
