Deal: £550 Sony Vaio Duo touchscreen ultrabook

Head over to Electrical123shop on eBay to check out the Sony Vaio Duo convertible touchscreen Ultrabook. The device, otherwise known as the SVD1121Q2EB, was launched last year at IFA and is now available from as little as £550 including delivery and 550 Nectar points.

It runs on a third generation Intel Core i5-3337U processor clocked at 1.7GHz with two cores and 3MB L3 cache. Other features include a full size keyboard, an 11.6in display with a full HD resolution, OptiContrast Panel technology and touch capabilities, 4GB of RAM, 128GB onboard storage, a front-facing webcam, HDMI and USB connectors, a card reader, a digitizing stylus and Windows 8. The Vaio Duo is a mere 18mm thick and sits comfortably on an A4 sheet.

We'd preferred if Sony managed to pack a bigger display into that form factor, a definite possibility given the size of the bezel.

The big let-down though has to be the fact that it doesn't even come with a touchpad, something that may repel a significant number of potential customers for whom, that pointing device has become an essential part of their daily routine. Check out our review of the Sony Vaio Duo 11 here.
