The Active Pen delivers precise performance allowing you to write, draw, and tap the touchscreen effortlessly. With every stroke, the digitizer stylus captures even the most subtle nuances of pressure, allowing you to adjust line weight, brush size, and more by pressing harder or softer with the pen. When the pen is near the screen, the touch sensors are turned off so you can maintain a comfortable writing position, even laying your palm on the PC. Two tips are included, allowing you to simulate working with a variety of traditional art and design materials.

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.

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.
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.
