Conclusion: All of this adds up to a machine most users should avoid, even if they are looking for a hybrid device, and imaging and design professionals should strongly consider and test out for themselves. It was purposefully built for them.
Pros: Terrific display, Great battery life, Nice performance
Cons: Some design and build issues, Lousy keyboard, Cramped trackpad, Odd button placement
Summary: The Sony VAIO Duo 13 has a lot going for it: a lightweight chassis, a vibrant screen with pen support and epic battery life. However, at $1,899 ($1,399 to start), we would expect a flawless typing and navigation experience, and the Duo 13 offers one of the industry's smallest touchpads, along with a mushy keyboard.
Pros: Long battery life, Bright and colorful screen, Lightweight design for a hybrid, Good pen support
Cons: Uncomfortable keyboard, Tiny touchpad, Odd button placement, Pricier than other hybrids
