    Yeah I think I'm sold as well. The surface is nice but having the keyboard built in just seems like a perfect fit. Really hope this gets reviewed soon.

    Never mind that I've been talking about Clover Trail for the past two months...may buy this. It's less expensive than I expected and Clover Trail is more expensive than I expected. Not that much of a price gap, and I'd love the 1080p screen. Also I love the design because I'm a weakling when faced with cool fashion stuff.

    We have two vaio at home and both are very well built and I can also say their support is better than HPs consumer support. So the fashion is just a bonus.

    Looks like battery life maybe a bit of a weak spot. No silo, but they are clamming you can use any wacom pen with it. Is the n at really true? Sony VAIO Duo 11 (D11213CX) Review & Rating | PCMag.com

    That claim is exact opposite of what the Sony reps said about the device in the trade shows (that the pen requires battery)!

    And that MSRP seems pretty decent fro a VAIO.

    Who to believe....

    Laptop Mag's review says the pen takes a AAAA battery and says nothing about wacom.

    Ignore the rating...the device sounds fantastic to me. Great screen, good keyboard, boots in 13 seconds, responsive touch. If you can live without a silo for the pen, and with the so-so battery life (laptop mag puts it at just over 5 hours), it sounds like a great device for $1,099.

    PCmag says any Wacom pen could work. I thought I remember reading it was going to be either N-Trig v4 or Amtel pen like the HP Elitepad. Who is right?

    I think the PC Mag writer is doing shoddy reporting IMO.

    Assuming that it's another Wacom pen W8 hybrid. Sony has said many times the pen requires battery.
