The Sony VAIO Duo 13 is a slick-looking hybrid ultraportable that gives you solid performance and a full workday's worth of battery power. The 13.3?inch touch screen display delivers a crisp picture with brilliant colors but its viewing angle...

Computers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and this year, we’ve certainly seen some interesting blends of the computer and tablet, pushing the hybrid to new levels of neat design. Sony’s Duo 11 makes the tablet and notebook into one device too,...

I'm writing this review of the Sony Vaio Duo on a Lenovo Yoga 13. It's not a good start for the Vaio is it. The fact is though the Sony Vaio Duo is a really useful Ultrabook convertible and it has surprised me. Sliders. They are in many respect a...

Sony's convertible notebook sacrifices good looks to deliver a much stabler touch experience. The Duo 11 uses a sliding mechanism to transform from tablet to laptop form, with the screen sliding upwards and away...

We're not a fan of sliders at Digital Trends. Because they lack the functionality of a standard laptop yet also remain too heavy for comfortable tablet use, sliders have so far proven that they're the worst form of convertible PC we've seen. Sony's...

Sony has been having a tough time since home 3-D, in which it invested its soul, turned out to be (as I predicted) of little interest to consumers. This hasn't stopped it from continuing to be as innovative and creative as ever, but, as often happens...

The advent of digital photography brought with it the replacement of the traditional wet darkroom with the modern digital lightroom. In the wet darkroom the main instrument of the photographers trade was of course the enlarger....

Despite all its functionality and inventiveness, the Vaio Duo 11 appears to be a product design that became so focused on touch tech that it lost sight of the screen. It's powerful, well connected and highly portable too, but in some basic areas, it's...

Sony’s VAIO Duo 11 slider has all the power of an Ultrabook in an innovative form factor. We like the versatility the slider offers, and the inclusion of plenty of ports means the Duo 11 is one of the first potential business tablets we’ve tried. The...

The Duo 11 has a stonking screen and delivers an impressive performance. It shows off Windows 8 to best effect but while the sliding screen mechanism is distinctive, it won't be for everyone. This being Sony, it's no bargain, but if you want a hybrid...

The Sony Vaio Duo 11 laptop has an identity crisis. Slipping and sliding, the Duo is in one instance a thick and heavy Windows 8 tablet before clumsily transforming into a Windows 8 laptop with an awkward, fixed-angle screen. In trying to do two...

The Sony VAIO Duo 11 is the first Windows 8 laptop with such a unique form factor. While it looks good, the form factor seems to be a compromise as far as ergonomics is concerned. It is too large and bulky to be carried as a tablet, and the keyboard is...

Windows 8 has finally arrived, and after many months of sneak-peeks and product teases, manufacturers worldwide have unveiled their ranges of Windows 8 devices. The Sony VAIO Duo 11 is in the vanguard of this new breed: fusing the DNA of an Ultrabook...

As a notebook, the Vaio Duo 11 performs well, and the HD screen is high quality. But for £849 for the least powerful configuration, we think it is a little too expensive for what you...

It’s certainly nice having the option of using the Duo 11 as a tablet from time to time. However, at this price the Duo 11 also needs to earn its keep as a workhorse laptop, and that baby-sized keyboard could deter many people who need a laptop that...

Unveiled at the IFA electronics expo in Berlin back in August, the Vaio Duo 11 runs Windows 8 and transforms from a tablet to a laptop via an HD display that slides up in what Sony calls a "Slide Surfer" style to reveal a full size QWERTY keyboard...

The Duo 11's star of the show is its bright and detailed 1920 x 1080 resolution touchscreen. However when it comes down to it the compressed keyboard and touchscreen combination isn't the most comfortable for traditional laptop-like use. The Duo 11...
