amazon Sony Vaio Duo 11 reviews
31.7 x 19.8 x 1.9 cm size (width x length x thickness). 11-inch screen of the machine is surrounded by a black border layer shiny but fortunately edge machine not too fingerprints.
When you look closely at the lower edge of the machine, you can see two small volume buttons, side lock buttons like rotate and 1 quick button help to quickly open applications user support that Sony built into the machine. The downside of this button is very hard pressed.
The right side of the machine we have 2 USB 3.0 ports, HDMI port, power button. Rear edge with 1 socket for the power button and port network. Besides on the left machines are arranged VGA port, headphone, SD card slot and Merory Stick Duo slot. Unfortunately, the machines are not equipped slot to plug a computer stylus.
In terms of size and weight, Duo 11 par with the ultrabook 13 inch. Weighs 1.27 kg machine, the Toshiba Portege Z935 lighter 181 grams, ASUS Zenbook Prime UX31A lighter HP Envy Spectre XT 90 ram.
Keyboard crammed into one compact device as Duo 11 also means that manufacturers have to sacrifice many points in this department. The keys on the keyboard, although the gap is quite large but the keys themselves are very small keys, the horizontal size of the keys on netbooks. Right Shift key and other keys are designed smaller, so the risk of mistyped keys when typing occurs frequently. Plus point of the keyboard is that it is equipped with a backlight.
Duo 11 has no touchpad instead, Sony equip 1 navigation buttons (point stick). In essence, it is a button optical sensor. Although the ability to navigate accurately, but it looks like it has high sensitivity causes the cursor to jump in panic when a user accidentally touches. This often causes inhibition when you are typing, the cursor is moved to another location, makes your work uninterrupted. Hopefully Sony can fix this via 1 update for this department.
Duo 11.6-inch screen of 11 ultra-high resolution, up to 1920 x 1080 pixels. With this resolution, everything from the colors, the brightness of the screen … very impressive. Try watching the movie trailer for “The Lone Ranger”, white and black facial Tonto character for excellent contrast. IPS panel screen also helps Duo 11 has a wide viewing angle, makes observed under high light conditions is very good. Sony VAIO Duo 11 screens was 402 lux brightness, almost double the average brightness of 223 lux ultraportable line; only ASUS Zenbook Prime’s screen is brighter UX31A laptop / tablet from Sony with 423 lux.
2 speakers mounted below the front corner of the machine for sound although not too large, but precise. When trying to stream the song “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen by Slacker app, voice of the singer was quite deep. Although not loud enough to be heard in the room, but with one small group of people, the factory speakers can fully meet.
