The most noticeable downside to the VAIOs design is its limited durability. Users can customize several things including surround sound, loudness levels (for the embedded speaker), even the frequency levels could be adjusted. A lot of what TPCR found still stands, and professionals at NBR found the Duo 13 pen experience to be both pleasant and productive. Similarly, its very comfortable to use, and effective when working as intended. The VAIO Fit hides its girth well though, employing a smart curved design which makes the notebook appear and feel like its smaller and lighter than it really is. That said, the VAIO should still endure perfectly fine to the standard wears and tears of travel, just dont expect the device to withstand direct impact or a fall.
As the glossy screen can sometimes produce reflections (particularly when in direct lightning), the screen provides an excellent viewing experience when viewed from a straight on angle. When activated with a light lift of the display, the screen slides up and docs at about 120 degrees, revealing a full-sized QWERTY in addition to a small and oddly rectangular track pad occupying about two-thirds of the area.
