Brief hands on Sony Vaio Duo 13

by TGN

Ultra books…………….high end notebooks with reduced bulk without compromising on performance. The Sony Vaio Duo 13 is exactly just this.

With a Core i7 processor (haswell), 8GB Ram, 256 GB SSD HD, Windows 8 and a 1920 x 1080 display weighing in at a little under 3lbs makes this an extremely portable yet a powerful device. Sony got it right this time(Last years 11 inch duo was a disaster in my opinion).

The ability to transform into a slate(measuring at 0.77 inches thick is what I like best about this Ultra Book. I’m not much of a windows fan but after using this for a few days I’ve actually given up my MBP retina and Ipad since this is basically a 2 in 1 device.

When closed, it looks just like a tablet. When open, the screen props up on hooks while pushing the keyboard and touch pad forward making it a laptop. This makes it great to use in the office or while you’re lounging around at home. I think this is the best of both worlds

The Duo 13’s 10-point  touch-screen technology works nicely when zooming, pinching, swiping etc.

Ports include two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI output, a headphone jack, and a Magic Gate card reader slot. Also included are a 2-mp front-facing camera, a rear-facing 8-mp camera, Wi-Fi N and Bluetooth 4.0 networking, and both NFC (Near Field Communication) and Wi-Di (Wireless Display) capabilities.

I really like this device. I think this has been my best buy for this year. The only issue(a small one) I’ve had is the size of the touch pad but the more I’m using it, the betters its getting. For a detailed review checkout this link.
