Visually a sleek tablet, in the heart of a full-fledged PC – the VAIO duo 11 leaves are not stuck in a drawer. Intel’s core i3 processor, which makes everything running on genuine Windows 8-PC, what can be installed also on a normal notebook works under the hood.
Housing: Tablet with keyboard
As a Tablet the VAIO is longer, but barely wider than the classic duo 11 with 11-inch display in the black magnesium chassis with 29.9 x 19.7 cm: with 9.7-inch display, the iPad measures 24.1 to 18.6 centimeters.
1285 grams are for a Tablet, however, excessive, but have a good reason: the integrated keyboard. And that is really smart: A brisk hand grip makes the display of the VAIO duo 11 in 130-degree position and uncovered a backlit keyboard with function keys and scroll keys.
At first glance, the design may seem somewhat fragile, in practice it proved to be as robust and useful – especially, if the own thighs are the only surface far and wide.

There are filigree buttons and list items, however, better using the supplied stylus – if because you have it to hand, because accommodations on the device is unfortunately missing.
Two side buttons at the stylus offer additional features such as File Explorer the mouse click. In the app “Note Anytime for VAIO”, which is free to take in the Windows store, turns the PIN using the handle in an eraser or to the selection tool.
This is possible because the capacitive display is additionally equipped with a special induction technique. The unusually high-contrast screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels on this 16:9-format optimized. The screen itself is largely angle-stable and can be adjusted up to 480 cd / m very bright square; so he remains visible even in sunlight.
