With every stroke, the digitizer stylus captures even the most subtle nuances of pressure, allowing you to adjust line weight, brush size, and more by pressing harder or softer with the pen. When the pen is near the screen, the touch sensors are turned off so you can maintain a comfortable writing position, even laying your palm on the PC. Two tips are included, allowing you to simulate working with a variety of traditional art and design materials.

  • Night Shift
    Practical innovation is a cornerstone of Sony’s vision, and our keyboards are no exception. The keyboard features precisely engineered keys to create a comfortable and intuitive typing experience. When typing in dim light, an LED backlight creates a pleasant glow, framing the individual keys and illuminating the lettering to make it even easier to find the right keys.
  • Simple multi-gesture touchpad
    The multi-gesture touchpad is the most intuitive way to interact with your laptop. Scroll with two fingers, pinch to zoom in and out of images, swipe to flip through pages or photos, and you can even rotate an image, and much more. Use your touchpad in the same way as if you were touching the screen. Swipe in from the right to reveal charms or return to the start screen. Swipe in from the left to switch to your last used app.

This is one of the best computers I ever had. Although pricy, the convenience factor of having this is unbelievable. I am a student, and by having this computer, it gives me the freedom to jot down notes or do some quick research for a up coming pop quiz. Plus the light weight and the size makes it easy to take it any where. Its a great computer( although my back-light burned out) and its been a joy having it.

This is a great machine and has potential to be one of thte best but there are two issues I am dealing with that are holding me back from a full throated endorsement. One is that the front of the machine is so thin that if its sitting on an uneven surface, the mouse clicks from underneath. I think this is because of the flexibility of the carbon fiber chassis. the second is that when the Bluetooth is on, the Wifi connection gets flakey. I am hoping this is just a driver issue but still a bit annoying.

one of the best ultrabook ever


from Philadelphia

Comments about Sony VAIO Duo White 13 Convertible Touch Ultrabook Computer:

The design is fantastic and the touch screen is very sensitive. Compared to other ultra books that can split into a keyboard and a pad, this duo is more convinent. The average recovery time is below 3 sec, and the face recognization makes it even faster to log in. However, I think it can be made lighter since sony pro proved it possible to make a 13 inch ulttabook 1.03kg. Also, the screen is always outwards, which makes me a little worried.

A fine instrument


from california

Comments about Sony VAIO Duo White 13 Convertible Touch Ultrabook Computer:

It is a fine instrument and I would recommend it to others. Works well as a semi-desktop replacement and as a tablet. Touch screen is excellent. Good Brightness at all times. The dual core i7-4650u is a good match. It runs 1 VM near real time. The windows experience is limited by its' graphics, but its very reasonable. Consider it over the base chip and graphics. Notes to Sony and Others: With Haswell, I don't miss a 4-core. WiFi is one bar less than my old machine. Sound quality is only fair. Volume is OK for personal use but there is no reserve and its not enough to overcome background noise such as a hair dryer. Downgrading to just 2xUSB3 from 4 is tough. I dislike carrying an adapter with 3xUBS3 plus an Ethernet port. Keyboard could be wider for touch typing with big hands. It cuts my touch typing speed by 2/3. But I can still do it. Also, keys are too slippy and lack texture. On the screen, I would have liked more pixels, to better handle virtual machines and videos at the same time, but it is very usable. Power connector seems standard. But considering it gets torque when held as tablet, I would have liked to see a stronger connector. I would also have liked a longer power cord so I can roll my chair back more. Anyway, seems Sony did a good job overall on this solid machine. I hope to keep for several years.

Great tablet / laptop


from Colon, Panama

Comments about Sony VAIO Duo White 13 Convertible Touch Ultrabook Computer:

I am really very happy with this purchase. At work and at home is a perfect fit.

from Miami, Fl

Comments about Sony VAIO Duo White 13 Convertible Touch Ultrabook Computer:

I wish I was warned before purchasing, the WI-FI is useless. You must be next to the Wi-Fi router to get a signal that will work. Walk a few steps away and forget it. I travel and I can't get WI-FI anywhere. Sony doesn't yet have a fix for this issue. Please search on the web for "Sony Vaio Duo WI-FI problem" to find the posts on Sony's website of the hundreds of people complaining and no reply from Sony. My solution was to buy a USB Wi-Fi devise for $10. Otherwise, this the most amazing computer ever.

Poor Wifi and WiDi


from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Sony VAIO Duo White 13 Convertible Touch Ultrabook Computer:

I am very desappointed in finding a problem so serious in conection Wifi on a computer so expensive as vaio duo 13. For the price this ultrabook should at least work perfectly. The signal is very weak (as the internet speed) even if the computer being in places where other computers presents connection with strong signal. I read in forums that everyone is having the same problem with their Vaios. I hope sony presents a solution to this problem fast. The widi also not functional when used with the device for the netgear PTV3000. When I can make the connection lag is so great that it is feasible to use. I do not know if it could be a driver problem or something but I hope that sony presents a solution to this problem also.

Excellent laptop/tablet combo


from Charlotte, NC

Comments about Sony VAIO Duo White 13 Convertible Touch Ultrabook Computer:

It's pricey but definitely worth it. I researched laptops and tablets ad nauseam. This one seemed to get the best review but some did complain of wifi connectivity strength issues. (Although this complaint seemed prevalent on all new laptop/tablet combos.) I haven't had any wifi issues with mine. Performance is great. Battery life is awesome!! I can go an entire work day without having to plug in the laptop! I really like having the pen stylus. I recommend buying a screen protector and a good case. I already dropped it once! It fell on one of the corners. The case did an excellent job of keeping the laptop in tact. It only received a small dent that's not noticeable except to me since I was the one that dropped it.


Best laptop ever BUT Sony needs to fix WIFI


from Bethesda, Maryland

Comments about Sony VAIO Duo White 13 Convertible Touch Ultrabook Computer:

I've used Windows convertible laptops for over 6 years and this is by far the best. The only downside is the WIFI issue. As long as you are very close to a WIFI router everything is fine but the moment you step even slightly away from the router the signal drops quickly. Other than that I love the performance and battery life. I like it so much I bought a wireless router for each room I use this laptop in!

could be better


from San Francisco, CA

Comments about Sony VAIO Duo White 13 Convertible Touch Ultrabook Computer:

1. No DVD reader 2. Max RAM should be expandable to 12 G 3. Should have more than USB 3.0 ( at least 3) 4. Should have a choice of Window 7 or 8, being 8 is too new for hardware drivers. Takes at least 3 years for the hardware manufacturer to provide device driver 5. ****Most important is no docking station****

Amazingly light and FAST! Perfect for Students!


from San Juan, TX

Comments about Sony VAIO Duo White 13 Convertible Touch Ultrabook Computer:

From the start this hybrid comes out great. It's really fast when booting up, and restarting, mainly due to the Solid State Drive built in. This also makes the Duo 13 really light, perfect for those needing to have a computer on hand for long durations throughout the day. The battery life on the Duo 13 is also great, lasting as long as a regular laptop (for me around 7 hours of heavy use). The stylus was also a great addition to the Duo. Note taking and drawing with the included app made my work seem flawless and as lifelike as possible. This is, by far, the greatest investment I've made for my future.

Great Buy for NoteTaking/Gaming/Design

Comments about Sony VAIO Duo White 13 Convertible Touch Ultrabook Computer:
