Reviews for the Sony Vaio Duo 11 SV-D11213CN

70% Sony VAIO Duo 11
Source: Techtree.com English
The Sony VAIO Duo 11 is the first Windows 8 laptop with such a unique form factor. While it looks good, the form factor seems to be a compromise as far as ergonomics is concerned. It is too large and bulky to be carried as a tablet, and the keyboard is not ergonomic enough to use over long duration. The performance is top-notch with the powerful components such as the fast CPU and SSD. The Full HD touchscreen IPS panel that takes full advantage of the Windows 8 UI is very responsive and also looks good. Multimedia performance is quite good with the decently loud and clear speakers. The generous number of ports makes it very suitable even for office use. Battery life may not be sufficient for some, so you might want to invest in a battery slice to double it up. Priced at Rs 90,000, this can be a speedy and cool-looking gizmo to show off to your friends for bragging rights, if you are willing to overlook the lack of ergonomics.

Series:

The Sony Vaio Duo 11 and many other touchscreen laptops, which utilize the new touch-oriented operating system from Microsoft, had their debut at the IFA in summer 2012. What set it apart from other flipping, twisting and dockable devices is its unique slider form factor and strong performance due to high-end hardware which is comparable with the best Ultrabooks in the market. This also means that the Vaio Duo 11 unlike e.g., Windows RT systems, which can run only a limited apps from the Windows market, can run all PC software build for the x86 architecture.

Other advantages of the Duo 11 include all full size ports like VGA, HDMI, Ethernet and USB, which are mandatory for business user when on-the-move. In addition, its bright and contrast-rich FullHD screen is the best of its kind, and its premium case composed of a massive magnesium parts make the Duo 11 very sturdy and durable.

However, every design has some trade-offs, and the Duo 11 is no exception. Intel’s i5 architecture require much more power than the ARM architecture, so the battery life of the Duo 11 barely meets the general Ultrabook requirement. Due to full size ports and keyboard, the Vaio Duo 11 is heavy and it is very hard to use as a stand-alone tablet. Due to the small form factor and the slider mechanism, the Vaio Duo 11 also falls behind standard Ultrabooks when it comes to user comfort.

Because of its disadvantages, the Vaio Duo 11 is not suited for average consumers. However, it is one of the best candidates for business users who want powerful performance and convenience on-the-go.

11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
