Sony Vaio Duo 11 Review

2 April 2013
  • Summary: At an MRP of Rs 89,990, the Sony Vaio Duo 11 (SVD11213CN) is quite expensive. Even if it was cheaper by a few thousand rupees, we would have still suggested you consider other options because the keyboard and pointing device can be quite frustrating to use. It would have been nice if Sony had gone in with a swivel screen design like in the Dell XPS 12 or a 360 degree folding screen like in the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga.

Sony Vaio Duo 11

30 December 2012
  • Summary: The Sony Vaio Duo 11 offers a Full HD screen, a slide-away keyboard and some very powerful specs. It's a great way to take advantage of Windows 8's tiled interface, but you'll need to make sure you don't mistreat that sliding mechanism.
  • Cons: Converting mechanism feels susceptible to damage; volume buttons are awkwardly placed; Nowhere to store the stylus.

Sony Vaio Duo 11 review

21 December 2012
  • Summary: 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 they can use at work.

Sony VAIO Duo 11

26 November 2012
  • Conclusion: The Vaio Duo 11 is fast, portable, great looking and we love the 1080p display, not to mention the digital pen with pressure sensitivity. It's quickly become one of my favorite Windows 8 machines. If you're looking for a decked-out Ultrabook-convertible, the Sony has everything for a relatively reasonable price: a bright IPS 1080p display, fast Intel Core i5 and i7 ULV CPUs, fast SSD drives and plenty of ports including full size HDMI, VGA and wired Ethernet.
  • Pros: Superb 1080p IPS touchscreen, has digital pen, compact and light, plenty of ports and wireless features.
  • Cons: Keyboard is small.

  • Excerpt: Looking to chip away at the iPad’s death grip on the market through dual functionality and some serious Windows 8 guts, the Sony VAIO Duo 11 represents yet another foray into the field of computer meets Transformer.

PC Magazine

Expert Review

11 October 2012
  • Conclusion: But unless you're absolutely intent on carrying a dedicated keyboard with you wherever your tablet goes, and you don't care about optimal typing comfort, we're not sure the VAIO Duo 11 is the best option. The world is about to be flooded with Windows 8 hybrid devices. Admittedly, we haven't had a chance to review any others yet, but we've seen more than a few of them behind closed doors, and some will feature roomier, more comfortable keyboards than the keys found on the...
  • Pros: Excellent 1080p IPS screen, Powerful components, Backlit keyboard, Impressively slim
  • Cons: No cover or included case for the always-exposed screen, Keyboard isn’t great for extended typing, Brief battery life

Sony Vaio Duo 11

LAPTOP Magazine
11 October 2012
  • Summary: At first blush, the Sony VAIO Duo 11 looks like a slick Windows 8 hybrid--and it is. We appreciate the bright and colorful full HD display and very fast boot time. However, this slider feels cramped as a notebook, too big as a tablet and has too short endurance for either type of device. We also have concerns about the durability of the screen as the Duo is thrown into bags (despite the Gorilla Glass treatment), and the fact that the stylus can get lost easily.
  • Pros: Bright and crisp full HD display, Accurate stylus, Fast SSD, Plenty of ports
  • Cons: Feels heavy in tablet mode, Short battery life, Keyboard feels cramped, Volume buttons hard to reach, No holster for pen
