Summary: Overall, it is not easy to judge this Sony Vaio Duo 11 . From a certain point of view, it is a convertible tablet that looks expensive, heavy and bulky. On the other hand, is a convertible Ultrabook with exceptional Full HD 11.6 ” and the high computing power and versatility.
Pros: Quality construction and design, High power, Excellent screen, Full connectivity, With stylus input.
Cons: Heavy and cumbersome, It lacks the touchpad keyboard is not separable, Audio underpowered.
Conclusion: 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.
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.
Pros: Superb 1080p IPS touchscreen, has digital pen, compact and light, plenty of ports and wireless features.
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.
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.
Excerpt: Like a freight train barreling down the track, Microsoft's new Windows 8 operating system is fast approaching consumers. Its dual tablet/desktop interface has spawned some creative ideas from notebook makers, such as the $1,199 Sony VAIO Duo 11.

Summary: 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 slider design is by no means perfect, though.
Pros: Excellent performance for a tablet, Convenient slider design, always-ready keyboard, Excellent integrated connectivity
Cons: Restrictive slider design, Unnecessarily busy design, Nowhere to store digitiser pen
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.
