The overall performance of the Vaio Duo 11 is excellent. The scores reported by the synthetic and real world tests were very similar to those of Dell XPS 12. PCMark 7 reported 4867 points and 3DMark Vantage logged 11356 points in Entry mode. It took 86 seconds to compress 100MB of assorted files to 7.zip format (Ultra preset) and a little more than a minute to transcode a 1 minute MPEG video to H.264 format. The file transfer speeds you get with the 128GB SSD are blazing fast. CrystalDiskMark logged sequential read and write speeds of 455MB/s and 241MB/s respectively, again similar to what the Dell XPS 12 logged.
Performs slightly better than Dell XPS 12
This kind of performance should be more than sufficient to handle light to medium-weight load such as basic everyday tasks. Full HD video playback was smooth and speakers are loud and crisp. Videos and photos are a treat to watch on the slick full HD display. 11.6 inches may seem small, but you get ample workspace thanks to the high resolution.
You can expect the Vaio Duo to survive for about an hour and a half more than a regular notebook. And that’s only because of the ultra-low voltage CPU that it runs. A full charge lasted for 1 hour and 43 minutes with Battery Eater Pro running in Classic mode and Wi-Fi disabled.

Verdict and Price in India
At an MRP of Rs 89,990, the Sony Vaio Duo 11 (SVD11213CN) is quite expensive. Even if it was cheaper by a few thousand rupees, we would have still suggested you consider other options because the keyboard and pointing device can be quite frustrating to use. It would have been nice if Sony had gone in with a swivel screen design like in the Dell XPS 12 or a 360 degree folding screen like in the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga. We feel Sony should have concentrated more on ergonomics instead of focusing mainly on style.
