SONY VAIO Duo 11 Ultrabook - Good for drawing?


I spent a day with the Sony VAIO Duo 11. Here's my first impression and my first drawings.

The new VAIO line comes installed with ArtRage Studio Pro, so I did some drawings with this. It comes with a digitizer stylus that lets me draw naturally. It is very responsive and feels comfortable in my hand. When the stylus is close to the LCD, the touch sensors automatically turn off so I was able to rest my palm on the screen and draw.

I will have to try it again to check the pressure sensitivity. I don't feel I was getting good thick and thin lines, but that may be due to the fact that I didn't set things correctly.


The Sony stylus comes with the VAIO Duo 11. It is not Wacom technology, it is made by n-trig in Israel. Needs a battery inside.

It only works with the VAIO Duo 11. All the other Sony VAIO touch screens do not support this stylus just finger touch and the same brushes and styluses should work that work on the iPad.


I would say 'Yes, it is good to use for drawing'.
