Security Measures

Security Measures

TPM (Trusted Platform Module) provides secure information management and enhanced business protection. TPM is built into a computer to store cryptographic information, such as encryption keys. Because TPM uses its own internal firmware and logic circuits for processing instructions, it does not rely upon the operating system and is not exposed to external software vulnerabilities. As a result, information stored on TPM is more secure from external software attacks and physical theft.

The handiest port around

Forgot to charge your phone or mp3 player? Just plug your device via USB cord into the USB sleep charge port and start charging. Even if the PC is shut down and not plugged in you can still use it. And don't forget that the USB 3.0 port is perfect for connecting a compatible external hard drive and allowing you to wait less and transfer data up to 10x faster than USB 2.0.

Scan your documents

Cam Scanner is a document scanning app that enables you to edit, organize and keep track of multiple documents. Use the 8 megapixel Exmor RS camera to take photo of a document or notes written on a whiteboard. The app automatically scans and straightens any distortions. You can share the document to a note app to edit or add notes. Easily search for archived files using OCR technology.

Write Naturally

Write Naturally

VAIO Paper is a handwriting app that gives you the feeling that you are writing with pen and paper as you use with the Active Pen or touch screen to write on your VAIO PC. And with the ability to add images and sound you can add to your creative writing and express yourself in ways that you can't with just pen and paper. It's easy to use, organize and share your creation via e-mail and other apps.


See an image on the web that would be a great addition to your presentation? Use VAIO Clip to trace or draw a freehand outline using the Active Pen or your finger around the image. With intelligent edge detection you can quickly crop images in seconds with auto edge detection. Then save the clip in the file manager which will automatically store the creation or modify date, the web page URL and tags, too.

Color Name: White
I specifically waited 2 months before I wrote this review. A notebook like this needs more than a few days use to be able to make a judgement. I had to return mine with a defective screen. The local Sony store (where I bought it) didn't give me any trouble. They admitted right away the screen had a defect and gave me a new one. Took less than 10 min to get it replaced. So that's already a very positive thing for Sony. Makes me very confident buying their products knowing they stand behind it.

Just a few positive highlights that stood out to me using it for two months:
- very light! I think they claim it's the lightest notebook with that screen size and I think it's true. It's made from carbon fiber.
- very responsive and accurate touch screen. I actually didn't expect it to be that precise
- very decent run time and charges quickly
- very compact. Because of the way the screen folds up, even a big guy like me can use it on a plane in economy class!
- folds down to be a large tablet computer and it really acts like one
- all standard connectors and adapter included
- stylus works very well and has a smart way to ignore the hand touching the screen when the stylus is in use.
- screen doesn't wobble when using the touch screen like other laptops (that's a huge plus)
- charger has an extra USB charging plug for your phone/tablet

As I said the screen is very accurate. I used it with a video editing software that has a lot of very small control buttons and i expected it to be very difficult to use when using my fingers and the touch screen. But the screen is very accurate and I was able to get to every little button and use the software just fine. The stylus is excellent when you like to pair or use Photoshop. Sony has made it very smart.

Color Name: White
Excellent product. Overall, I love it. The touchscreen is very sensitive which takes getting used to, but once you do, it really works to your advantage. The pen/stylus device really adds that extra precision if needed. The overall processing system and technical specifications are top of the line, i.e. having the latest i7 processor. And if you buy the 8gb ram model, it really shows in the speed in which you can open, run, close, re-open, apps and other work. The scanning feature is really neat if you have situations in which you need to do it often. Otherwise, its something you just never think to use or commit to memory on how to go about doing so. It does come in handy though, since carrying around a scanner is not practical. My only complaint is that when it goes into labtop mode position, it can only assume one angle. One would think with the crazy technology available, and with the company being SONY, that they would figure out a way to allow the adjusting of the angle in which the device becomes a labtop. Otherwise, great product.

Color Name: White Verified Purchase
Ok I did a ton of research on this computer and others. I even owned a surface pro 2 for a week (Which by the way was also an amazing machine)
I bought this machine from Amazon Warehouse but it came in like new condition. There were many many complaints about Wifi with this, but the Wifi has been just as good as any other computer I own. (and according to my wife that number is to high) . I also use a bluetooth mouse and the wifi has worked fine while using the mouse.

Anyways here are the pros:
1.) Light
2.) Good Battery life
3.) Pen input (Not quite as good as Wacom on surface pro 2 as you have to be closer to screen before it picks up the pen but it is really close to as good for notes at least.)
4.) Handles light gaming (I'm getting 20FPS in FFXIV :A Realm reborn 1366x768 Medium Settings)
5.) Looks awesome

1.) Angle can't be changed (I got used to this but I can see how this would annoy people)
2.) Wifi was weird before all updates and Windows 8.1 (You may get one where the wifi is worse I can only speak to mine)
3.) Heavier then just a tablet. (One handed use is iffy)
4.) Slight light leakage near bottom (It is not really noticeable but it is definitely there)

That is really my only cons with this machine I love it otherwise.
It does cost a lot but I would say it is the best convertible machine I have used. (I also tried the Flip 13a) I liked the flip 13a because of the angle change but this computer just seems to run better overall.
Also the surface pro 2 was awesome and felt like the future but I could not get the 256gb , 8gb memory version which is why I switched to this. I'm glad I did because I love the larger screen real estate.

Because everything works so smoothly that plugs and plays and grabs Wi-Fi so quickly. Everything works like a dream except for the scanning app which needs much more work to make it satisfactory. Otherwise it wold have had all the stars!.

One angle for the laptop mode setting makes it difficult to Skype/webcam with anyone. Also I spent 5 hrs one night trying to get my front camera to work again. Windows software has lots of updates and reboots that are a pain. Very cool that it is both a laptop/tablet which I call a "laplet". Keyboard is very nice and the touchscreen works great. I'd wait for the 2nd generation or even third if I was to advise someone on buying one of these.
