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 1.8Hz Intel Core i7-4500U processor. It also has 8GB of 1600MHz LPDDR3 RAM, a 256GB 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 Pro (64-bit) is the installed operating system. Windows 8 Pro introduces a redesigned Start Screen with tiles that update in real-time. Windows 8 Pro also focuses on cloud storage as well as offers various apps through the Windows Store. Windows 8 Pro also focuses on data security. Bitlocker drive encryption helps protect corporate data on this VAIO Duo 13, thanks to its TPM chip. SmartScreen services help protect you from malicious sites and software on the Internet. Windows 8 Pro provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.

VAIO Duo 13

Dual-Core Haswell Intel Core i7 Performance
The VAIO Duo 13 houses a 4th generation Haswell Intel Core i7-4500U processor. Its dual cores can reach a stock speed of 1.8GHz. The processor can also be overclocked up to 3.0GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. With a dedicated 4MB L3 cache, 8GB 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.

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+ 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
