IFA 2013 | Sony introduces the VAIO Tap 21 all-in-one

The Sony VAIO Tap 21 is a highly portable 8-pound PC featuring Windows 8 and powered by a Haswell processor.

After the successful VAIO Tap 20, Sony decided to strengthen its position in the portable all-in-one segment and announced  the introduction of the VAIO Tap 21, next to the much smaller VAIO Tap 11 tablet. The VAIO Tap 21 all-in-one Windows 8 portable PC is now encased in aluminum and features a diamond cut VAIO logo on its back. 

The specs of the VAIO Tap 21 make it one of the most powerful computers in its category:

  • Processor: Haswell Intel Core i5 or i7
  • Display: 21.5-inch 10-point multitouch with a native resolution of 1,920X1,080 pixels
  • Storage: various options consisting of SSD and Hybrid drives
  • Operating system: Windows 8 (possible to come with Windows 8.1 preloaded)

Sony did not announce the detailed technical specs or information about pricing and availability, so most chances are to see the VAIO Tap 21 all-in-one PC launched just in time to match Microsoft Windows 8.1's release, as rumored a few days ago.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
