Sony Vaio Duo 11 SVD-11213 - Intel Core i5
Excellent 1080p IPS screen, Powerful components, Backlit keyboard, Impressively slim
Touch capability, Gorgeous hi-res IPS display, Windows 8, Intel Core i5-3317u processor, 128GB SSD.
The Sony Vaio Duo 11 has a fine set of specs for an ultrabook and an excellent full-HD touch screen on which to take advantage of the Windows 8-style interface.
No cover or included case for the always-exposed screen, Keyboard isn’t great for extended typing, Brief battery life
Awkward design, Glitchy touch screen, Short battery life.
The Duo's design misses the mark for use as a tablet and a laptop, feeling like too much of a compromise.
