The latest generation Intel® Core™ processor delivers snappy performance and impressive visuals, further enhanced by a stunningly sharp 1920×1080 11.6” OptiContrast™ Panel that not only reproduces vivid and accurate colours that is essential for any graphic intensive work, but also affords
users with the flexibility of wide viewing angles.
Intelligent digitizer stylus offers pen-like precision
Great ideas often begins with the spark of creativity jotted down on a pad of paper, with its new digitizer stylus, Sony has successfully brought that experience to the VAIO™ Duo 11. Minimal latency means a more natural writing experience, and the screen intelligently ignores palm presses while writing, preventing distracting scribbles. Apps such as “Note Anytime for VAIO” turn the VAIO™ Duo 11 into a virtual notebook for easy on-the-fly note taking, while Active Clip™ allows users to snip out or select parts of an image and save them to a fully shareable scrapbook. During presentations, the digital stylus can also be used to write notes and comments directly onto the PowerPoint document when in slideshow mode for unprecedented interactivity.
Enjoy multimedia and social media with ease
The VAIO™ Duo 11 takes the multimedia experience to a new level with a range of intuitive features and apps for the user’s entertainment pleasure.
The ‘Music’ application lets you enjoy your music collection with superb quality thanks to xLoud and ClearPhase technologies, while the ‘Album’ application makes viewing, sorting or sharing pictures and videos exciting and intuitive. Both applications lets you ‘throw’ or stream personal photos, video and music content to enjoy on DLNA compatible large screen TV and audio systems.
Users can also download the ‘Socialife’ app for their VAIO™ Duo 11, a unique application that organises your social and information world. This feature is perfect for Facebook users to view, sort and manage all social networking services and news feeds through one stylish user interface, alongside your friends’ feeds and posts. Mark interesting articles for later reading when you’re not so busy. Based on what your friends are reading, ‘Socialife’ also points you to other popular topics and even suggests content that you might like. Keeping track of everyone becomes more convenient.
