PCMag has a product review on Sony’s VAIO Duo 13, a second generation and attempt at designing an ultrabook convertible. For those that aren’t familiar with the VAIO Duo product line, the computing solutions found in this collection feature Windows 8 devices that employ a Sony Surf Slider mechanism. The design essentially has a touchscreen display slide out and up while revealing a keyboard. The VAIO Duo operates as a slate tablet or an ultrabook.

With the Sony VAIO Duo 13, Sony improves upon the design of its predecessor, the Sony VAIO Duo 11 (D11213CX). This model offers a larger screen and a smaller hinge, and it’s outfitted with a fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor. The biggest improvement has to do with battery life; it managed over eight hours on our battery rundown test.
