Sony Vaio Duo 11 Review

Tech2
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 convertible tablet: More clunky than cool

CNET
15 March 2013
  • Summary: While there are certainly things to like about the Sony Vaio Duo 11, the design gets in the way of enjoying them.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: The Duo's design misses the mark for use as a tablet and a laptop, feeling like too much of a compromise.

Sony VAIO Duo 11 Review

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.

19 March 2013
  • Summary: 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 get.
  • Pros: Vibrant display, portable, well built
  • Cons: No track pad, a little chunky, not great as a tablet, sliding mechanism is difficult to operate

Sony Vaio Duo 11

THE INQUIRER
23 December 2012
  • Conclusion: The Vaio Duo 11 looks better on paper than when you test it for yourself and use it in real life situations. In tablet mode it will probably be a little too bulky for most people, and the hinge doesn't feel as strong as it should when sliding it into laptop mode.
  • Pros: Vibrant display, portable, well built.
  • Cons: No track pad, a little chunky, not great as a tablet., Weak feeling sliding mechanism makes it difficult to operate.
