The Sony Vaio Tap 11 is another Windows 8 device that essentially rivals others of its own kind such as the line-up of Surface tablets. Both with keyboards that come with the package, there are only a few of these that are available in the market. And now that Microsoft had just released its next generation devices, it is important that we take a look at the other devices which can be its serious competition.
Lightweight And Powerful
If there is one thing which can be easily noticed with the Sony Vaio Tap 11, it is that it is very thin and light. Even though it has 11.6 inches of diagonal screen size, it is still portable because of the 1.70 pounds of weight. At $799 of starting price, it is reasonable considering that it also has a wireless keyboard and digitizer stylus that comes with the package. These accessories create the feel that the user is using a very thin and modernized notebook.
Performance-wise, experts and other gadget reviewers are mostly praising the Sony Vaio Tap 11. The entry-level price that we mentioned comes with the Intel Pentium 3560Y central processing unit but consumers can also opt for the more expensive ones. For the model which contains the Core i5 processor, the price increases to $1,099.99 according to the official store of the manufacturer as well as CNET.
Functional And Innovative
When it comes to the basic features, the Sony Vaio Tap 11 is sure to showcase the best that it can give. Look at the display and you can see the 1920 x 1080 pixels of screen resolution supported by the LED backlight. Move down to the hardware and you will be amazed that this tablet has 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB Solid State Drive hard drive. It also has all the ports that you need such as the Micro HDMI, Micro SD, USB 3.0 and headphone/microphone jack. There are two cameras supported by Exmor. The front has an HD quality while the back has 8 megapixels.
Work Space And Battery Problems
Unfortunately, the Bluetooth-connected keyboard of the Sony Vaio Tap 11 comes with a price. Since it is not attached, it cannot be used on laps and other work spaces which are not widely flat. This is the advantage that Microsoft’s Surface tablet has over this Sony gadget. In addition, the battery capacity of 3800 mAh courtesy of the Lithium Polymer can only cater 5 hours and 45 minutes of battery life. This is comparably short compared to other devices with similar features. Individuals who have seen the Vaio Tap 11 were convinced that Sony should have included a battery-saving feature to make this even longer.
