Sony Vaio Duo 11 vs Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx vs Acer Aspire P3:Better is..............

 W.A.Khan,                                                                                                                                                 Sony Vaio Duo 11                                                                                                                                     Sony’s Duo 11 is one of that strange new breed of hybrid Windows 8 devices that can be used as either a tablet or a laptop computer. It's an Intel Core i5 3317U chip clocked at 1.7GHz - the same low power variety found in Ultrabooks. While 1.7GHz may seem low, it can Turbo Boost itself to a whopping 2.7GHz under heavy strain, which means it's no slouch.It’s certainly an attractive looking device, with an excellent high-definition, touchscreen.The Sony Vaio Duo 11 packs an 11.6-inch 1920 x 1080 IPS panel, which looks glorious. Not only is Windows 8's new interface sumptuously represented, but also apps, games and movies too.The Sony Vaio Duo 11 has a fine set of specs for an ultrabook and an excellent full-HD touch screen on which to take advantage of the Windows 8-style interface.Battery life is respectable considering the specifications. We got just over four hours when using Wi-Fi to stream video from iPlayer, so you can probably stretch that to around five hours for lighter web browsing or using simple office software.
But, The Duo's design misses the mark for use as a tablet and a laptop, feeling like too much of a compromise.
The bottom line: While there are certainly things to like about the Sony Vaio Duo 11, the design gets in the way of enjoying them.

Don’t expect to edit and render HD video in record time, for example.It’s a little light on storage too – almost 27GB of the 64GB solid-state storage is taken up by Windows itself, which only leaves you about 37GB for your own files. Fortunately, there’s a micro-SD slot that will allow you to add another 32GB storage if you need to.
The Atom processor also relies on the old Intel GMA integrated graphics, which means that your gaming activity will probably be restricted to casual games such as Angry Birds.The tablet gives you up to 8 hours battery life but you can double it to 16 hours when you connect it with the optional keyboard dock.
But, The keyboard has too much flex, and the docking hinge sticks. For only a little more, better products are available.
The bottom line: The IdeaTab Lynx is a perfectly functional Windows 8 hybrid but lacks the lower price of some competitors, or better design and features of others.

All the hardware and clever stuff can be found in the 19.75 mm thin slate itself.The Acer Aspire P3 has an 11.6-inch IPS touchscreen display. It’s not a full HD display, though, but 1,366 x 768 pixels.The P3 comes with a built-in Acer Crystal Eye HD front webcam captures video in 720p HD, bringing life to video web chats while the 5MP back camera captures photos in high resolution, which is more than enough for a hybrid device. The new Ultrabook features a 60GB or 120GB SSD for powering on the device and retrieving data quickly and securely.
The Acer Aspire P3 is a solidly built, full Core i5 Windows 8 tablet with its own keyboard for under $1,000. The lower-res display at least looks crisp.The 5,280mAh battery will last for seven hours according to Acer.
But, Generic design, a cheap-feeling keyboard case, last-gen Intel processors.
The bottom line: Yet another Windows 8 Core i5 tablet, the Acer Aspire P3 has only one thing in its favor: it costs a maximum of $1,000.                                                                                                                        Specifications
