At the VAIO Summer 2013 Launch on Thursday, Sony Singapore announced three new devices to its line-up.
VAIO Duo 13
With the longest battery life amongst all the Ultrabook models available in the market, VAIO Duo 13 can last up to 15 hours in MobileMark® 2007. The unique Surf Slider™ design of the VAIO® Duo 13 allows for a quick and seamless transition between slate and keyboard modes.
Additionally, its innovative standby technology enables the VAIO model to continuously update applications as well as receive emails even when it is in sleep mode.
With the inclusion of “Exmor RS for PC” image sensor in the 8M built-in rear camera of the VAIO Duo® 13, users can now take images of documents clear enough that the computer can recognise and tag text. This capability, added with the “CamScanner” application, allows the VAIO to function as a scanner and has the ability to straighten images of documents and photos taken at odd angles.

VAIO Pro 13 and 11
The VAIO® Pro 13/11 are the world’s lightest touch-capable Ultrabook™ models in their respective classes (The VAIO® Pro 11 weighing as light as 0.87kg, while the VAIO® Pro 13 weighs approximately 1.06kg). This is achieved using uni-direction carbon fibre for its body, with its Hexa-shell design providing additional durability that people expect from a notebook.
The wide key pitch and stroke on the VAIO Pro allows for a natural typing experience and its unique palm rest gradually merges into the desk for unparalleled comfort when typing.
