According to Sony, the VAIO Flip's design is based on the essence of ‘sharing with others'. As the name suggests, it is capable of flipping and converting between laptop, tablet and viewer modes by flipping the display over the hinge. The laptop mode accommodates highly productive work, the same way as conventional notebook PCs. In tablet mode, it is best utilized for touch, browsing the web, taking pictures etc.
Lastly, with the viewer mode, the display can be flipped over so that you can share the experience of watching a video or movie with another person or give instant presentation anytime, without worrying for connecting a projector. Its chassis is constructed with brushed aluminum hairline finish.
The laptop comes with a VAIO Paper which is a digital notebook and handwriting app that replicates the feeling of natural writing with pen and paper. Thus using it, you can write on your VAIO Flip PC with your finger or the optional Active Pen to add images and sound that enhance 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 email and other apps.
