We managed to get our hands on a really interesting laptop (if you could even call it that!) to review as we approach Christmas, so here we are going to share some pictures and preliminary thoughts about the Sony VAIO Tap 11.
The Sony VAIO Tap 11 is an unique machine with a screen size of 11.6-inches, with a detachable bluetooth keyboard. It can also serve as a tablet independently if you wanted it to, running on Windows 8 (upgradeable to Windows 8.1).
Here are some photos for your viewing pleasure.
The laptop is light, even with the attached keyboard, and really slim. I can last a whole day of simple work out on it so far, will do a more intensive battery test later.
It is also one of the few laptops with an active digitiser which will very much help in writing and drawing. In fact, this laptop could be an alternative to the Sony Duo 13. The digitiser has promise, but I would like to use it more before passing judgement.
The magnetic latch on the keyboard isn’t too strong, so the keyboard slips off the tablet, which irritated me. The keyboard seemed to keep missing some of my keystrokes and it made it quite frustrating to type some times.
Also, not the fault of Sony, but Windows 8 was a real pain to use. I will be upgrading the unit to Windows 8.1 to see if it would help.
Look out for the full review of the Sony VAIO Tap 11 in the near future!
