Review Sony Vaio Duo 13 SVD1321M2E Convertible Ultrabook

 

Not quite your ordinary tablet. 11 becomes 13. How large does a s

Not too bulky in tablet mode; Good build quality; Ports located at the rear; Connectivity similar to a subnotebook; Strong performance, comes with a SSD; High contrast ratio, great viewing angles; High color fidelity, covers 93 % of the sRGB color...

Unsatisfying keyboard and touchpad feedback; USB ports located too close to each other; Short Wi-Fi range

Placing these few ports so close to each other could and should have been avoided.

BUZZING while charging! touchpad buttons are not great, screen always exposed = fear of breakage, finding a case is hard so went for official one which was expensive, battery although awesome does not last as advertised .
