SONY VAIO Duo 11 Convertible Touch Ultrabook Review

Reviewboard Magazine
29 April 2013
  • Excerpt: [dropcap]I[/dropcap]s it a bird… is it a TABLET… is it a Notebook?  It’s a SONY ULTRABOOK!!  Seriously… this thing is pretty cool.   In fact, it is to date probably the best implementation of touch screen and Windows 8 I’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.
  • Cons: Keyboard is small.

  • 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.
  • 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’s tablet slides up to become a fully-fledged laptop

Good Gear Guide.au
5 August 2013
  • 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

  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: Dual tablet/laptop, terrific HD touch screen, powerful processor, full Windows 8
  • Cons: Not cheap, sliding mechanism doesn't seem sturdy, no storage for stylus

Pocket Lint
10 December 2012
  • Conclusion: The 11.6-inch screen has a surrounding black bezel which adds several centimetres to the overall size. Not uncommon for a laptop, although the left and right-side bezels are rather wide; indeed it appears that a larger visible screen could have been fitted into the Duo 11's given space.
  • Pros: Screen looks great, decent build quality, backlit keys, reasonable power
  • Cons: Touchscreen dirties up quickly, compressed keyboard is awkward, no dock for stylus, occasional orientation issues, when the fan kicks in it's horrendously noisy

  • Summary: Sliding tablet-laptop hybrid with Windows 8
  • Pros: Great screen, Staggering power, Top connectivity, QWERTY keyboard, High-end build, Connectivity is one of the Sony Vaio Duo 11's biggest wins, and we loved being able to plug in USB drives and peripherals to our tablet. Editing on Photoshop and running our favourite apps was also cause for celebr...
  • Cons: Laptop-esque weight, No trackpad, Small keyboard, Bulky, Keyboard can't detach, The cramped keyboard, lack of a proper trackpad and substantial weight combine to make the Sony Vaio Duo 11 a problematic hybrid tablet. While the likes of the Samsung Ativ Smart PC and Asus Vivo Tab can be detached f...
