Summary: I bought Vaio Duo 11 because my old laptop was dying and I wanted light weighted one to travel with. I use mostly as laptop PC because I have no reason to say tablet is better than laptop. I have ipad too but I have not used it since I got my Vaio Duo!!
Pros: light weight, great laptop PC, beautiful light-up keyboard, fun as tablet with windows apps
I absolutely love this tablet. Perfect for my needs

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.
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.
Summary: Design: 10/10 Quality: 10/10 Price:8/10 Speed:10/10 Will buy again for sure. I will recommend this for home, mobile or even gamers like me. This bad boy is even faster than my desktop. I love the illuminated keyboard, Windows 8 fast boot time and the touch screen very responsive. Try using the stylus with Sketchbook Pro and you will know what I'm talking about.
Full PC capable running any modern Windows programs.

Summary: This is my first tablet PC and I can tell I LOVE it. So powerfull! It runs any program required for electrical engineer student from VA Tech. Stays cool(no fans run at all) during normal use. Battery is above 4.5 hours for normal use.
Summary: Sony has been able to successfully merge two, possibly three devices into one. The i7 with 8GB of ram and 256GB SSD replaces my laptop and android tablet. It has specifications that when connected to a monitor or HDTV via HDMI port can replace my desktop as well. I have tried other Windows 8 tablets from Samsung and the Surface that do a good job at being a PC tablet.
Pros: Form factor - portable and easy to use, Screen, RAM - 8G on i7 model, Always attached keyboard, Build quality
Cons: Battery life, Slightly heavy to hold up with one hand, No slot for the pen
Summary: I own a first generation tablet the acer iconia for about 2 years, I also have amazon fire too. While it worked great to surf the web on the go and in bed, and play with time-wasting unproductive apps, I need something more powerful in the next upgrade. Good thing window 8 tablet came out in bunches, they are basicallt ultrbook specs with a tablet. I had my I set on a Microsoft Surface Pro Windows 8 Pro ad went to MS store.
Summary: The price tag on this configuration might scare some people off for an ultrabook; but consider that you get 8 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD. For the price, this is actually quite affordable. Most other manufacturers don't even offer 512 GB and when they do they mark up the product about $600 (for instance see the Fujitsu T902). Also this is a very capable device; it's basically a desktop replacement in a portable form factor.
