Sony has introduced its first mobile Tabletop PC, the VAIO Tap 20 PC, and its slider hybrid, the VAIO Duo 11 Ultrabook, combining innovative hardware designs with rich touch experiences powered by Windows 8.
Alongside the new state-of-the-art PCs, there is an elegant T Series Ultrabook and portfolio of VAIO PCs that put touch right at the heart of the personal computing experience.
Built with Sony’s innovative digital imaging, sound and TV technology, the latest VAIO Touchworld collection features bright, responsive 10-point multi-touch screens with engaging interactive applications, family computing options and new experiences in mobile productivity.
“VAIO Tap 20 is creating a new category of PC’s by combining desktop PC functionality, battery-powered mobility, and multi-angle viewing,” said Steven Nickel, VP, Sony VAIO.
“This, along with the innovative VAIO Duo 11 and the intuitive touch solutions incorporated across our existing PC portfolio, offers consumers flexibility to optimize their Windows 8 experience.

VAIO Tap 20 is a family tabletop PC designed to take advantage of the intuitive ease of Windows 8. Featuring a 20-inch screen, this mobile desktop PC can lay flat on a coffee table for the whole family to play games on the large screen. With a removable battery, users can easily move it from room to room in the house – from bedrooms and kids’ play areas to the kitchen or garage.
Powered by Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 by Sony for amazing picture quality, VAIO Tap 20 ensures crisp, clear images while the built-in stand and wide angle panel enables viewing at many angles. Users can also stand VAIO Tap 20 upright and use it as a fully-functioning desktop PC to work on documents, surf the web and check emails with the supplied wireless keyboard and mouse.
