Battle of the ultrabooks

Who will reign supreme?

The 13-inch ultrabook has defined itself as the sweet spot for ultrathin and compact laptops that help you do everything you need and more. So we're facing off the new Sony Vaio Pro 13 against Apple's 13-inch MacBook Air (2013).

The Sony brings one of the freshest designs we've seen to date, has a touch screen, and runs Windows 8.

The Apple keeps the same iconic look, but feels more and more dated. But it packs something special under the hood: 14-hour battery life.

It seems that laptops are still bringing innovation, even with the significant rise of tablets and smartphones.

Will Apple's MacBook Air defend the crown as the incumbent Prizefight champion? Or will Sony's envelope-pushing Vaio Pro dethrone the King of the Ring?

Which one will be your Prizefight champion? Cast your vote!
