Sony Vaio Duo 11

The 2.8-lb. Vaio Duo 11 switches back and forth between tablet mode and laptop mode via Sony's "Surf Slider" mechanism. The screen slides back and tilts up to reveal the back-illuminated keyboard, in much the same manner as the Android-powered Asus Eee Pad Slider, but the touchpad has been done away with to save space -- the Duo 11 instead uses a keyboard-embedded pointing stick.

Sony's also playing up the creative aspect of the Duo 11, as it includes a AAAA-powered stylus with a selection of soft-to-firm pen tips for working with the 11.6-in., full-HD touchscreen.
