Reviews for the Sony Vaio Tap 21 SV-T21227CXB

Sony VAIO Tap 21 Multitouch Mobile Desktop
Source: Hot Hardware English
The benchmarks, however, don’t convey what the user experience was like with the Sony VAIO Taop 21. Though the machine didn’t tear up the benchmarks, it was actually a pleasure to use. Sony didn’t outfit the system with very powerful hardware, but the user experience is still very good.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4500U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

21.5":

This is a very large display size for laptops on a desk without mobile use.

3.9 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
