Sony Viao Duo 11 Hands-on
VAIO Duo 11 puts touch and handwriting right at the heart of your Windows 8 computing experience. Write, sketch and interact with media and applications on the responsive, touch capable, super-bright Full HD OptiContrast Panel. A unique pressure-sensitive digitizer stylus gives the satisfying, expressive feel of handwriting directly on the touchscreen.

Smart text recognition even lets you quickly convert handwritten notes to text for easy archiving and searches. A choice of swappable pen tips lets you select between a firm or softer writing feel. With selected apps VAIODuo 11 even recognizes when you’re writing, cleverly ignoring the pressure of your palm on the touchscreen.
