    Real confused about which Vaio to purchase:

    1. Vaio Duo 11 - 128gb including sheet battery for $550

    2. Vaio Duo 13 - 256gb with two year extended warrnty until 2015 for $950

    any insights? i dont think space will be the issue, but the screen realestate might.

    thanks.

    I'd with the 13.

    It's got enough battery-life to reach MBA levels.

    If you are serious about using the pen, skip the Duo 11. It's stuck with N-Trig Duo Sense 1. They started using much superior Duo Sense 2 with Duo 13.

    Another vote for Duo 13 .

    It's an improvement over the former in almost every way. Sony really upped their game with it.

    -much higher battery life
    -significant better performance, especially 3D
    -better digitizer pen tech
    -more efficient use of space
    -larger, brighter screen
    -magical thermals

    you should know that Sony abandoned Vaio line. They are no longer making laptops. Terrible decision I think, as they had some of the better hardware competing with Apple pro-sumers.

    +1 on VAIO Duo 13.

    I had the 11 with sheet battery and still couldn't get through a day. Pen was okay, but had a few issues.

    The Duo 13 improved across the board. However, getting a spare pen will cost you now, given Sony have pulled the VAIO range.

    Good point. I would imagine so.
