Sony Unveils VAIO Duo 13 and VAIO Pro 13/11 Ultrabooks

Sony has extended its summer 2013 VAIO lineup with the introduction of VAIO Duo 13 and VAIO Pro 13/11. Designed to enhance individuals’ lifestyles, the new slider hybrid PC, VAIO Duo 13, and mobile VAIO Pro 13/11 complete the line-up of existing family-friendly VAIO Tap 20 and entertainment-centered VAIO Fit 14/15.

VAIO Duo 13

The Ultrabook sports a Surf Slider design, which allows for a quick and seamless transition between slate and keyboard modes. Sliding the screen back while in slate mode reveals a keyboard as well as a touch pad and returning it to its original position will put the VAIO Duo 13 back in slate mode. With its integrated standby technology, internet connection is constant, allowing applications update and receive emails even when in sleep mode, or wake up from sleep mode in less than a second, without compromising battery life. 


  • Exmor RS for PC image sensor incorporated into its 8-megapixel rear camera
  • CamScanner app that allows the Ultrabook to be used as though it were a scanner
  • OptiContrast panel enables natural writing experience when using the digitizer stylus
  • TRILUMINOS Display
  • X-Reality for mobile optimizes quality for sharp videos, and enhances color composition
  • ClearAudio+ mode

VAIO Pro 13/11

The lightest touch-capable Ultrabooks in their respective classes, the models' uni-direction carbon fibre bodies and Hexa-shell design provides the additional durability required for a mobile PC.


  • TRILUMINOS Display
  • X-Reality for mobile
  • ClearAudio+ mode
  • One-touch listening to allow users to seamlessly transfer music playing on their VAIO to NFC-compatible devices

The new VAIO Duo 13 and VAIO Pro 13/11 will be available in APAC from end of June onwards.
