The Tablet PC that Does it All
Can't decide between a tablet or a PC? Now you don't have to. Tap into the power of a PC without sacrificing the portability of a tablet with the VAIO Tap 11 Tablet PC – the world's thinnest Windows 8 tablet PC with Intel® Core™ or Pentium® processor. Type accurately on the included wireless keyboard that doubles as a cover, browse the web by touch, write and sketch with the Active Pen stylus, and scan and edit documents. Think watching TV couldn't get any better? Master your home entertainment center with the built-in IR remote control and discover new ways to enjoy your favorite movies or TV shows.
Behold the powerful potential of Active Pen
Coverage You Can Type On
Featuring a full QWERTY keyboard and multi-gesture touchpad, the included slim, aluminum cover both protects your VAIO Tap 11 display and gives you the typing experience you're used to. Because this cover is wireless and magnetic, you can easily detach from the PC to find your most comfortable writing or working position. And you'll never have to worry about plugging it in because this cover automatically charges when attached to the PC.
A Stroke of Genius
Use the Active Pen to write, draw, and tap the touchscreen with effortless precision. With every stroke, the Active Pen captures even the most subtle nuances as you press harder or softer so you can adjust your line. And don't worry about smearing your work as you write, because the touch sensors turn off when the pen is near the screen so you can write normally and comfortably. With two interchangeable tips that simulate common artistic and design materials, Active Pen lets you imbue your work with a unique artistic edge.
Note Anytime for VAIO helps you easily take notes using the Active Pen or keyboard. This note taking and organizational tool will not only convert your handwriting to text, but also lets you add your own creative touch by drawing on the touchscreen with your finger or stylus so you can include hand drawn diagrams or images. You can organize your notes by specific subject or project, and even add images that you clip from the web using Active Clip or directly from your albums.
Master of the Living Room
Master your A/V devices from a single source using the universal remote control application and built-in IR remote. Add another dimension of entertainment to your TV watching experience with the TV SideView app from the Windows 8 store. Flip through the channels, peruse the channel guide, or search for your favorite content online to find the perfect program to watch. Once you settle on something, discover episode details, research cast information, or tweet about it right from your tablet PC.
