Screen rotation does not work as a Tablet, not a tablet
1 February 2014
Pros: It is lightweigh, shiny screen and battery last enough.
Cons: May be storage is limited but well that is what new solid state HDD offer at the moment. Screen rotation is not well controlled by drivers and some multi touch that are quite normal in a Tablet does not work not even similar.
Summary: I was delighted with my purchase at first. Near instantaneous boot up time. I had fun using it as a tablet. No problems there. But what I wanted was a machine that could be used as a laptop replacement. This is where the Sony Viao Duo 11 failed ... miserably!!
Summary: I am not a professional reviewer. I am not interested in computers themselves other than how I can use the computer as a tool. I did look over reviews before purchasing the Sony VAIO Duo 11 SVD11213CXB. I bought directly from Sony online.
Summary: The tablet has a good screen and a powerful process but the build quality is poor. The screen slides but does not secure when in the up-right position. It rattles and slips as you press on the screen and slowly slips back to horizontal.
Summary: its ok, but for £1300 I should be over the moon with it, but im not and I do regret buying it. The battery life is below average probably 3 hours realistically, plagued with the usual Microsoft laziness in terms of performance.
