Reviews for the Sony Vaio Flip 11

70% Sony VAIO Flip 11

The nice price and screen work in the Sony VAIO Flip 11's favor. Unfortunately, some design issues, sluggish performance, low battery life, and VAIO's reduced presence in the U.S. all keep the system in the middle of the pack. If you need a less expensive price tag, better multimedia performance, longer battery life, and a full-size keyboard, then stick to systems like the Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch, our Editors' Choice for ultrabooks. If the tablet form factor appeals to you, seek out the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga or our Editors' Choice for Windows slate tablets, the Microsoft Surface Pro 2, both of which are much better performers all around (though pricier)..

Review + videos: 3 convertible Windows laptops try to be all devices to all people
Source: Computerworld.com English
The HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 is a portable powerhouse that mixes excellent battery life with impressive performance. I found that it worked better as a laptop or presentation system than a tablet or fold-flat system; in addition, at more than a half-pound overweight, it's tedious to hold as a tablet. And even the entry-level models are surprisingly expensive compared to the competition. Frankly, I was wowed by the Dell XPS 11's ultra-high-resolution screen, its sleek profile and low weight. Easily the best of the bunch at being a tablet, the XPS 11's soft skin is inviting to the touch. Finally, despite having the most complicated hinge design of the three convertibles, the Sony Vaio Fit 11A | Flip PC offered the least number of movement configurations of the three laptops. As a tablet, I found it awkward to hold vertically, while as a laptop, the screen wobbled noticeably and the volume control is hidden behind the display. The Flip does, however, have a nice 5-degree tilt when it's set up on a desk as a tablet.

As we worked on this review in early February 2014, the news broke that Sony is selling its PC business to a new company established by private equity firm Japan Industrial Partners. The smallest and lowest-priced of Sony's four Flip PC convertibles is a surprisingly capable as well as versatile laptop/tablet that looks more expensive than $799.
