This review is from: SONY VAIO Duo 13 Intel Core i5 8GB 128GB SSD 13.3" FHD Touchscreen 2-in-1 Ultrabook/Tablet (SVD1321BPXB) - Carbon Black
Pros: I've had this computer for about a month now after selling my 27" iMac for something more portable. It runs Adobe CC very well as well. I'll have at least two applications open and running and I have yet to notice it slow down or anything.
I've also done some light tinkering with Blender 3D and the rendering time is pretty good.
Gaming is pretty solid for a non-gaming PC. I've played Borderlands and League of Legends on it and both have had around 40-50 FPS on higher graphics settings.
The Start up time/reboot time is amazingly fast. It takes less than 15 seconds to turn on and be ready to go.
The screen is also stunning. Great resolution, great viewing angles, really crisp. The tablet and touch abilities are also quite impressive. When using Sketchbook Pro the screen has around the same accuracy as my Wacom Cintiq.
Cons: There aren't many so I won't be as long-winded.
1. Photoshop doesn't support the pressure sensitivity of the pen yet so if you're going to draw, use Sketchbook Pro. 2. The screen is a tad slick for the tablet. There isn't much resistance when using the stylus so control your movements. 3. Dat SSD is tiny. I had to expand my cloud subscription to make up for files I couldn't keep on my computer.
Other Thoughts: All in all, the faults I found in the computer are ones that I can easily compensate for. I'm incredibly pleased with my purchase. I would recommend it to any artist looking for a light portable powerful computer.
