Poorly designed

Fingschlyster, Amazon
2 January 2014
  • Summary: I've owned the Sony VAIO Duo 11.6 for five months and it's already been returned to Sony 2 times for repair. The trackball Sony decided to use instead of a track pad is a bad joke. The trackball is impossible to use. The concept behind this tablet/laptop with Intel i7, 8 gig's ram, SSD, etc. is outstanding, but Sony design engineers didn't think through the design and really blew it. CONCEPT GREAT...DESIGN/EASE OF USE AWFUL BUYER BEWARE!

Perfect for me

Amazon Customer, Amazon
16 December 2013
  • Summary: Everything about it is first rate. The size is convenient for carrying around, yet large enough to see the screen. The pen works very well and makes using the computer a lot of fun. This is my second Vaio...the other one is quite old and still working great - gave it to a relative. The Sony programs seem to be a lot easier to use than their older ones. Beautiful to look at, very responsive.

I absolutely love this tablet. Perfect for my needs

hikeswithguitar, Ebay
11 November 2013
  • Summary: This is the greatest tablet/laptop I have seen to meet the needs of both types of users. Light and small enough to use as a pen tablet but with the VGA and HDMI outputs, twin USB 3.0, and full size SDHC card slot as well as a fast processor and SSD drive it has the power of a full size laptop. Perfect upgrade/replacement for my Motion Computing LE1700. The keyboard is compact but perfectly functional for touch typing. The screen is really bright and crisp as well.

Does what it was made for

Nathan L., Newegg
6 November 2013
  • Summary: This laptop was made for on the fly use, not as a mobile desktop. If you are looking for a gaming rig, or if you are looking for a net book, this is not the laptop you are looking for. If you want something that can do more than just check email, but not something that needs to be able to render Crisis at max settings at 60 fps, this is a good touchscreen.
  • Pros: Very good convertible. Decent construction, not bulletproof but it doesn't fall apart unless you play frisbee with it. Ok battery life. Small so it fits in my bag for traveling to Magic events. Has enough power that I can play WoW off an external hard drive when I travel and don't feel like dragging my computer along. Windows 8 is actually pretty good for this sort of quasi-tablet application. I still prefer 7 on my desktop.
  • Cons: Not really a con, but this is not a gaming laptop. See other thoughts.

Great Laptop / Tablet Perfect Power to Size ratio

thatlostdog, Ebay
30 October 2013
  • Summary: I got this laptop because I do way more graphics than typing and I wanted to try the pen input. I also needed for it to be small and slide in to my camera bag. If you type a lot like most people who review laptops the keyboard is rather small and you may want to go with the larger 13" model. I read that it was difficult to open but that person must have been slow because it actually quite easy, but strong enough to stay in place in tablet or laptop mode.

Teaching Tool

Ryan B., Newegg
30 October 2013
  • Summary: If you plan on taking full advantage of the versatility of the Duo then it will be well worth the price.
  • Pros: As a teacher I chose to get this product for several reasons: HDMI output for projecting my notes with my wireless projector server Digitizer for writing notes and posting them online Light weight for being able to walk around and write at the same time All in all, I got everything I wanted and more out of the Sony Vaio Duo. Other good things about the laptop: HD 1080p is great Runs most computer games very well Never gets too overheated Fan is silent Looks sleek, my ...
