Overview
  • 1Description

The carbon white VAIO Duo 13 SVD13213CXW 13.3" Multi-Touch Ultrabook Computer from Sony 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 10-point touch input as well as digitizer input, which is why Sony included a digitizer pen with the VAIO Duo 13. The screen features LED backlight technology, IPS (in-plane switching) technology and Sony's TRILUMINOS technology, which provides natural shades of color, a wider color range and a heightened sense of depth. 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 system is powered by a dual-core Haswell 1.6Hz Intel Core i5-4200U processor. It also has 4GB of 1600MHz LPPDDR3 RAM, a 128GB solid state drive, a 2-in-1 media card reader, 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0+HS, near field communication (NFC), an integrated webcam and microphone.

Windows 8 (64-bit) is the installed operating system. Windows 8 (64-bit) replaces the traditional Start menu with a redesigned Start screen. The Start screen features tiles that update in real-time, which provide faster access to news, weather forecasts, sports scores, social network updates and more. Windows 8 (64-bit) also focuses more on cloud storage as well as apps, which can be downloaded from the Windows Store. Windows 8 (64-bit) provides a unique user experience from previous versions of Windows.

VAIO Duo 13

Dual-Core Haswell Intel Core i5 Performance
The VAIO Duo 13 houses a 4th generation Haswell Intel Core i5-4200U processor. Its dual cores can reach a stock speed of 1.6GHz. The processor can also be overclocked up to 2.6GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. With a dedicated 3MB L3 cache, 4GB of 1600MHz LPDDR3 RAM and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, you'll be able to multitask quickly and efficiently. The low voltage Haswell processor also makes it possible for the VAIO Duo 13 to squeeze 10 hours out of a single charge (battery life may vary depending on usage)
13.3" Capacitive Touchscreen
The 13.3" capacitive touchscreen features LED backlighting and 10-point touch input support. The screen also features IPS (in-plane switching) technology, which provides up to a wide 178° viewing angle. The touchscreen also utilizes Sony's TRILUMINOS Display, which creates natural shades of color and provides a wider color range. The display is made of tough, scratch-resistant glass, which is vital to a touchscreen using touch and stylus input. The screen also has a 16:9 aspect ratio and features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution, so you'll be able to watch 1080p HD videos without having to upscale the content
Surf Slider Design
The unique Surf Slider design allows you to transition between tablet and laptop modes. Interact with the tablet by using the stylus or your fingers on the 10-point capacitive touchscreen. When you need the feel of tactile keys, simply slide the screen back to reveal the keyboard
Digitizer Stylus
The included digitizer stylus delivers precise performance allowing you to write, draw and tap the touchscreen with ease. With every stroke, the digitizer stylus allows 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 screen. Two pen tips are included, allowing you to simulate working with a variety of traditional art and design materials
ArtRage Studio Pro Software
ArtRage Studio Pro contains all the tools of ArtRage Studio, such as oils, watercolors and inking pens which allow you to produce natural looking artwork on your computer. The version on the VAIO Duo 13 is ideal for artists who need to edit their work in more depth, supporting Photoshop compatible filters, real world color blending, post-spray editable stickers and more
Note Anytime for VAIO
Note Anytime for VAIO helps you easily take notes using the digitizer stylus or keyboard. This note taking and organizational tool will not only convert your handwriting to text, but also lets you add your own creative touch by drawing on the touchscreen with your finger or stylus so you can include hand drawn diagrams or images. You can organize your notes by specific subject or project and add images that you clip from the web using Active Clip or directly from your albums
Active Clip
See an image on the web that would be a great addition to your presentation? Use Active Clip to trace or draw a freehand outline of the image using your digitizer pen. With intelligent edge detection, you can quickly crop images in seconds. Then you can save it to your presentation, clipboard or Note Anytime for VAIO
Near Field Communication (NFC)
Quickly exchange messages, photos, MP3 files and URLs with other compatible NFC devices. See the same website that's on your VAIO Duo 13 from your smartphone. Even switch from listening to music on your desktop computer to your VAIO Duo 13 and back again. With NFC (Near Field Communication), it all happens by simply tapping compatible devices together on the touch icon. It's instant, requires zero setup and is just that easy. Please note that both devices must have NFC in order to utilize this feature
Full Connectivity
For Internet access, you have a choice of using the built-in 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 jack or go wireless with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. You can use Bluetooth 4.0 to wirelessly connect to all your peripherals, such as a wireless mouse or keyboard. The HDMI port allows you to output video to an HDTV
ClearAudio+
ClearAudio+ combines Sony's unique sound processing technologies like xLOUD, Clear Phase and S-Force Front Surround Sound for clear and bold sound. With ClearAudio+, you'll hear dynamic bass and soaring highs with less distortion for an immersive listening experience
Night Shift
The keyboard features precisely engineered keys to create a comfortable and intuitive typing experience. When typing in low-lit environments, a backlight creates a glow that frames the individual keys and illuminates the lettering to make it even easier to find the right keys

Windows 8

The Redesigned Start Screen
Windows 8 introduces a new Start screen, which has all the information you need in one place. The traditional Windows desktop screen has been replaced with a tablet style design featuring tiles. Tiles are customizable as well as update in real time. News, weather forecasts, sports, contacts, apps and more are available for you to use. It's all right there on the Start screen
Seamless Integration of Multi-Touch Gestures
Windows 8 supports multi-touch gestures. Now, you can use your keyboard, mouse or the touchpad using simple gestures. Whether you're browsing apps, reading a book or typing on the go with touch, you'll be able to seamlessly switch between all three interactive components. With the touchpad, Windows 8 allows you to use multi-touch gestures, such as swipe, drag, tap, slide, pinch-to-zoom and more
To the Cloud
With Windows 8, when signed in using your Microsoft account, you'll have instant access to your personal Start screen, themes, language preferences, browsing history and browser favorites. You can also connect to services such as Microsoft Outlook, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and more
Windows Store
In the Windows Store, you can search for or browse thousands of apps. Choose from the featured apps or grab one of the most frequently downloaded apps to see what all the hype is all about. You can also see how other people rate apps. For certain apps, you can try it out before you buy it so you can make sure you absolutely want an app before you spend your hard-earned money on it
