Sony's thin, powerful Tap 11 tablet shows up the competition in terms of design. It's not ideal for everyone, but only a few tweaks away from being the runaway leader in this smallish category.
There may be a lot of touch-screen tabletop Windows 8 tablet PCs, but the Vaio Tap 21 has the looks to compete.
The Sony Vaio Duo 13 is ambitious, but less universally useful than other Windows 8 laptop-tablet hybrids. There may not be a real need for a slider-style PC.
The superthin, superlight Sony Vaio Pro 11 is everything we expect from an excellent ultrabook.
While there are certainly things to like about the Sony Vaio Duo 11, the design gets in the way of enjoying them.
