The carbon black VAIO Duo 13 SVD13233CXB 13.3" Multi-Touch Convertible Ultrabook Computer features a unique surf slider design that allows you to transition between tablet and laptop modes with ease. The VAIO Duo 13 provides the benefits of both a tablet and an Ultrabook computer in one unique package.
The 13.3" capacitive touchscreen supports multi-touch input as well as digitizer input, which is why Sony included a digitizer pen with the VAIO Duo 13. The display has a 16:9 aspect ratio and a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution, which is supported by integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400. The resolution allows you to play back 1080p Full HD content without upscaling or letterboxing. You can also output video to an external display via the HDMI port.
The system is powered by a dual-core 4th generation Haswell 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5-4200U processor. It also has 8GB of 1600 MHz LPPDDR3 RAM, a 128GB solid state drive, a 2-in-1 media card reader, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0+HS, near field communication (NFC), an integrated 2-megapixel front-facing webcam, an 8-megapixel rear camera powered by Exmor RS for PC, and an integrated microphone. There are also built-in speakers with Intel High Definition Audio and ClearAudio+ technology.
Windows 8.1 is the installed operating system. Windows 8.1 improves the user experience of Windows 8 with several additions and changes. The Start button returns, but has two limited core functions. A left click takes you to the redesigned Start screen featuring tiles that update in real-time. A right click brings up an advanced menu where you can access the Device Manager, Control Panel and more. You will also be able to boot directly to the traditional desktop screen instead of the Windows 8.1 Start screen. Windows 8.1 provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.
