Creativity often starts with a few ideas jotted down on paper. However, after that first flash of inspiration, you invariably need a keyboard to deal with the nitty-gritty. Sony’s all-new Vaio Duo II hybrid ultrabook, with its sliding LCD display, allows you to effortlessly switch between slate and keyboard, so you can complete a project from start to finish on one convenient device.
Apps such as “Note Anytime for Vaio”, together with a digital stylus, permit you to make on-the-fly notes, and the same stylus can be used to write notes and comments directly on to PowerPoint documents (when in slideshow mode) for enhanced attention-grabbing presentations.
Although highly portable, this beauty packs plenty of computing punch. You can choose between Intel Core i7 and i5 processors, and memory options of 4 GB or 8 GB of SDRAM. Other features include a full HD 29 cm capacitive touchscreen and lots of connectivity options. Price: about R15 000. Contact Sony SA on 011-690 3555 or visit www.sony.co.za
