16 October 2012, Singapore – Sony VAIO Duo 11 is a tablet style hybrid Ultrabook is one of the more professional looking and functional Windows 8 tablet out in the market. With the Sony designed Surf  Slider 11.6″ Full HD display that allows effortless switching between the slate and keyboard mode, it avoids the cumbersome process of clipping the tablet to an external keyboard.

 

The new digitiser stylus for Sony VAIO Duo 11 is not just sensitive, it also ensures minimal latency for a more natural writing experience. There is no stylus storage slot on the Ultrabook, making it a hassle to bring the stylus around. But one thing to note, at least Sony manages to squeeze in a VGA port into the 17.85mm slim and 1.3 kg body, that is one less dongle to bring for presentation.

 

Personally, the Sony VAIO Duo 11 will be my choice for a tablet style hybrid Ultrabook, meeting all my needs as an on-the-go work warrior. The new Sony VAIO Duo 11 will be sold at S$1,999 for the Intel Core i5-3317U Processor and S$2699 for the Intel Core i7-3517U, and will be available in Singapore from November 2012.
