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

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...

The huge disadvantage is the wireless performance, which is appalling. I have full bars up to about 5m from my access point, but I only need to go downstairs for it to be unusable, whilst all my other wireless devices have great reception all around...

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

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.

Great design, Stylus speed

Wifi performance is shocking. Apparently it was a known problem and they are working on it.
