The new slider PC, VAIO Duo 13, and mobile VAIO Pro 13/11 complete the company's summer 2013 VAIO line-up.

"Our goal with these innovative models is to provide a fresh perspective on PCs," said Kazutoyo Araki, head, IT Marketing Division, Sony Middle East and Africa FZE.

"We have achieved this through various factors including creative design and Sony's unparalleled visual and audio technologies. Our main aim is to introduce devices into the market that portray the ideal balance between work and play. An example of this is the VAIO Duo 13's convenient design where consumers can use the slate mode either for presentations or playing music, and the keyboard mode for easy editing of documents." 

VAIO Pro 13/11

According to Sony, the VAIO Pro 13 is the lightest touch-capable Ultrabook in its respective class. By using carbon fibre throughout the case, the touch-enabled VAIO Pro 11 achieves a weight of approximately 0.770 kg, while the VAIO Pro 13 weighs about 1.060 kg.

VAIO Pro 13's and 11's uni-direction carbon-fibre bodies and Hexa-shell designs provide additional durability.

The Pro 13 and 11 are also designed to offer a wide key pitch and stroke to allow for a natural typing experience. Additionally, the Pro models both include a palm rest that gradually merges into the desk allowing for "unrivalled" comfort while typing, Sony said.

TRILUMINOS Display for mobile allows users access to a wide palette of colours through Sony's BRAVIA technology. This is combined with a full-HD display and Sony's resolution technology, X-Reality for mobile. X-Reality for mobile analyses each image and reproduces lacking pixels to optimise video sharpness.

"These technologies fuse with the audio-enhancing ClearAudio+ mode to offer an audio-visual experience that cannot be easily replicated," Sony said. "ClearAudio+ mode was developed with Sony's own signal processing technologies and makes it easy to enjoy Sony's recommended sound."
