Sony VAIO Duo 13 SVD1321Z9EB


Tablet and laptop in one ; So far the battery life is superb ; Great design, I have been looking at various makers and this came up top, for me ; Great stylus

Expensive, track pad is little too small, but expected that from previous reviews

Sony VAIO Duo 13 SVD1321Z9EB


Screen clarity, astounding battery life, rapid startup and usage, absence of pre-installed bloatware, colour reproduction accuracy, wireless communication methods and speed of digitiser input

Massively reflective (but beautiful) display, minor glitches with n-trig digitiser pen in some applications (more software based problem), hefty price tag

It is a beautifully designed machine, which is light enough to use conveniently as a tablet and converts smoothly into a Windows laptop, for which the stylus is particularly useful, as it's not easy to select, say, menu items with a fat finger. Some...

Sony VAIO Duo 13 SVD1321Z9EB


Overall very happy with it. The screen is particularly good and nice touches like the backlit keyboard make a lot of difference when travelling ; Battery life is good. I can get a full day of moderately intensive use between charges although I wish...

Screen angle is fixed so it's not always easy to get a good viewing angle, especially on the move ; Wireless LAN performance is DREADFUL. Low range, poor throughput. Clearly a device driver issue so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for an update soon
