Sony Vaio Tap 21 explained in hands-on video Video Transcript
The line between tablets and traditional PCs is getting blurry and blurry and no way it's got more evidence in this, the Sony Vaio Tap 21. All right, we're going hands-on with the Tap 21 at the IFA Trade Show in Berlin. It is an absolutely massive 21-inch, as the name suggests, tablets. Now, this isn't like the iPad or something. You're not gonna be taken this round with you obviously because it's huge instead the idea is that this Windows 8 machine will sit in your house and you'll use it to do all your ordinary computing tasks. You get this wireless mouse and keyboard and a quite like the brightness and colors that you get from the display though is very glossy so you might end up staring at your own reflection most of the time. To be honest, it's rare and perhaps a little bit unusual to get excited about hinge but I do like this hinge because it makes it really, really easy and simple to adjust the angle of the Tap 21. All you do is just push down on it gently and you can change the angle of it sitting out or if you want you can push it down flat if you want this to lay down on the table for example. It's got an aluminum frame, you got Intel's core i5 or i7 processors and it has his own battery so it's not tethered to one place in your house. It's an interesting idea and I like how easy it is to adjust the angle of the display. But what do you think? Let me know and check out more for me first by going to cnet.com/ifa.
