Sony has announced the Sony VAIO Flip 13A, a 2-in-1 convertible Ultrabook that converts from a laptop to a tablet. If you recall, Sony also produced the VAIO Duo 13, a comparable convertible Ultrabook. However, the VAIO Duo 13 has a different mechanism (a sliding one), and I prefer the VAIO Fit | Flip PC series to the VAIO Duo series. Lenovo’s popular Yoga 13 and their newest Yoga 2 Pro are equivalent to the VAIO Flip 13A.

When in tablet mode, however, Sony has a unique mechanism that prevents the keyboard from being visible when the display is flipped.

It’s tucked away in the space between the monitor and the keyboard. I’m not sure how to explain this flip mechanism, but you can see it in action in the video below. The Sony VAIO Flip 13A is equipped with the newest Intel Core Haswell engine, a Full HD touch display, and a Solid State Drive for storage. Check out the rest of the information and the video review after that.

Sony VAIO Flip 13A Review

Sony’s newest 2-in-1 convertible Ultrabook/Tablet is the VAIO Flip 13A, also known as the “Sony VAIO Fit 13A | Flip PC.” It has a 13.3-inch touch screen with Triluminos technology and a Full HD 1920×1080 resolution. But, unlike other Touch Ultrabooks, this one has a Digitizer, which allows you to write, draw, or navigate with accuracy with an Active Pen. It’s also pressure sensitive, which comes in handy when dealing with brushes and colors.

It is equipped with an Intel Core Haswell CPU, which may be an Intel Core i3, i5, or i7 depending on the model, and 8GB of DDR3L memory. A Solid State Drive, or SSD, handles storage and provides ultra-fast read and write rates that are much quicker than a traditional hard drive. You may install up to 512GB of SSD storage and the default storage capacity is 128GB. The SSD also decreases the device’s boot and wake up times, and the Sony VAIO Flip 13A resumes from sleep mode in two seconds owing to Sony’s Rapid Wake technology.

There are cameras on both the front and back of the Sony VAIO Flip 13. The front camera is an Exmor R sensor HD web camera. Meanwhile, the 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, which uses Sony’s Exmor RS sensor, is ideal for taking photos. You may also capture photographs of a document, letter, or even notes scribbled on whiteboards with the CamScanner software and the VAIO Flip 13’s back camera. It can also detect the text from the photos owing to OCR technology.

Another feature of the new Sony VAIO Flip 13 that I appreciate is that it has a built-in Intel Wireless-N 7260 dual-band WiFi card that supports 802.11 a/b/g/n. This is much superior than the standard WiFi cards found in most laptops and Ultrabooks. Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth 4.+HS, and Intel Wireless Display Technology are also included for wirelessly streaming films to other displays.

Price and Purchase Information

The Sony VAIO Flip 13A Ultrabook, a 2-in-1 convertible laptop, is now available for $1,099.99 and more, depending on your setup. It comes with a one-year limited parts and labor guarantee. By the way, if you click this link, you’ll be sent to Sony’s shop, where you may personalize and configure a VAIO Flip 13 to your desire. I would recommend getting at least an Intel Core i5 CPU, since the Core i3 is not very speedy, particularly while multitasking. I would also recommend getting at least 8GB of RAM, which is the minimum needed for a 64-bit operating system.

If you need something larger or more powerful, the Sony VAIO Flip 15A, a 15-inch variant with a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GT 735M with Optimus graphics engine, is also available.
