Sony Vaio Duo 11

Sony’s Duo 11 is one of that strange new breed of hybrid Windows 8 devices that can be used as either a tablet or a laptop computer. It’s certainly an attractive looking device, with an excellent high-definition, touchscreen. However, the method that Sony has chosen for switching between laptop and tablet modes isn’t as elegant as it could be.

Prices start at £849 for a model with an i3 processor running at 1.8GHz, 4GB RAM and 128GB solid-state drive (SSD). You can also step up to an i5 for another £100, but we tested the high-end model, which costs a hefty £1499 with an Ivy Bridge i7 running at 1.9GHz, 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD
