Summary: Superb machine with outstanding performance and features. I can see why Sony discontinued this product as it was a bit pricy at full retail but it blows away the competition and its not even close. But most people want something less expensive I suppose and don't mind giving up performance and features. At any rate if you can find one buy it. Won't be disappointed.
Summary: I'm currently writing this review on my new Sony VAIO Duo. It's a fantastic laptop. I originally got this laptop for one reason; my art. I am an artist and wanted to find a way to take my work outside the home. Since a lot of my art is finalized or is fully produced digitally, I decided that a tablet PC would be the best way to go. I researched ALL the different types of tablet PC's and quickly narrowed them down to a few.
Summary: Super fast shipping! Let me tell that one first :) Good communication with the seller; quick responses for my questions, and collaboration of the seller for solving problems. I open the package as soon as I received it, the item works properly; checked the touchscreen, sound, camera, pen, internet connection, charging etc. Everything looks just perfect. Thanks a lot!
Summary: I bought this computer about a month ago, and I love it. It weighs under 3 pounds and I can carry it in a lightweight briefcase with no problems. I hardly feel it when the briefcase is strapped over my shoulder. That's a huge plus. Another huge plus is the screen. It's crystal clear, and doesn't seem to have the same problems when you view it at a weird angle that other computer screens do.
Summary: This is an excellent machine, very fast and the touch screen becomes increasingly useful the more you use it. I was sceptical at first having only had traditional non touch laptops and PCs, however I now find myself attempting to swipe and flick my way through Windows 8 even when I can't. The power and speed achieved from the SSD combined with the 4GB of RAM I had on my model was staggering I could use all Microsoft Office programs, Adobe CS6 and Sony Vegas with ease.
Summary: It took me a while to choose this laptop, but I am glad I did get it in the end. This laptop is big enough to use on a daily basis, both home and away (the laptop comes with a slot for a micro sim card for use outside of the house when there is no WiFi (separate data only sim contract required). Even though it is slim and light weight it is a desktop replacement if required.
