Fast, good battery life, touch is sometimes annoying

Summary: I've had this computer for about two months and it has met all of my expectations as far as speed, functionality, and battery life. I can play music through my bluetooth headset for over four hours while other programs are running in the back ground (streaming from pandora, downloading large files, etc). There are two downsides: 1. When browsing (I use Chrome), tapping the screen can lead to inadvertent clicks.
Summary: I love this computer... it is fast and handy, easy to use, has large capacity and looks really clean and attractive. The touch screen is sensitive, the computer is very fast and responsive. Now for the cons... It is not a desktop. I tried using it as a desktop by attaching it to a large touch screen monitor (Acer 27") d using it to multitask. Though it has a i7 core processor and 8 GB of ram it bottlenecks when multitasking.
Great Device...IMO - Not Perfect, But What Product Is?

Summary: With an i7 processor and 8Gb of RAM the Sony Vaio Duo 11 (SVD11) is a powerful cross between a tablet and laptop. The key is to recognize that it is not a tablet nor a laptop in the conventional sense. If it were not for the lack of a trackpad it would be the perfect device in terms of form factor and design... IMO.
Pros: Excellent Sony build quality, Brilliant screen, Backlit key board, Connectivity options, Digitizer Stylus, i5 or i7 processor, 6Gb or 8Gb RAM
Summary: A lot has been said about this device, and a surprising amount has been rather dismissive. That's crazy... this is a fantastic device, although it is not without a few flaws. Like all of these lightweight ultrabook gadgets packing i5 or i7 CPUs, battery life is a problem if you use it away from 120v plugs. I used mine for note taking at a conference today. This is the first time I have challenged its battery. It worked brilliantly taking notes with OneNote...
Summary: My first impression when I picked up this tiny Ultrabook was WOW!!!!!! It's so light and fell in love immediately. You pull up on the back of the screen and it pops up into laptop mode. It's really cool. Folks keep coming by just to see it pop open then slide closed. (oooh do it again!) It's hard to believe that you get a full on Win8 PC in such a tiny package.
Summary: I picked this one up mainly because I wanted to have a tablet that would both run my Windows programs at work, but also allow me to take notes with a digitizer stylus. I used a Windows Vista/7 convertible laptop for this purpose in college and it served me fantastically, so I figured this would do me well. So far, it has met my expectations. There are several things about it that are absolutely wonderful to behold. The first thing you notice is the screen.
Summary: Its an awesome innovation from Sony. A complete top of the line laptop in a tablet sized body (and what a hot body it is). Albeit there are a couple of nooks: the abandoned digitizer pen, less than perfect battery life, a couple of hanging wires underneath the slider mechanism. The first two of these troubles can be done away easily with the sheet battery (adding a negligible amount of weight), which leaves just one, and I can completely live with that.
Summary: Before I bought the computer I considered for a long time as the price was too high. I took a great risk to make the investment. Now I've used it for 1 week and here's my experience. Pros: Very fast, eventhough the cpu is not so powerful as normal desktops or full-size laptops, it is still very fast among ultrabooks Very clear screen with great contrast. 1980x1020 resolution really spoils me. I don't want to look back on the screen of my old laptop.
