Sony Vaio Duo 13


It seems like every electronics company is building a hybrid tablet/laptop of some sort. The Sony Vaio Duo 13 is a Windows 8-powered machine with a 13.3-inch (1920 x 1080 resolution) touchscreen that slides up from tablet to Ultrabook mode, revealing a Chiclet-style keyboard and trackpad. It’s got an Intel Core i7-4500 processor, 8GB of RAM, 512GB of SSD and a battery life that’s rated at “up to 15 hours.” As a no-compromise mobile device, the 2.93 pound and 0.77-inch thick Vaio Duo 13 also has two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI port, Memory Stick/SD card slot, as well as an 8-megapixel rear camera. While it isn’t a powerhouse for serious gaming, the Vaio Duo 13 is a svelte machine for getting work done in the office, at home, or on the go.
