Write Naturally

VAIO Paper is a digital notebook and handwriting app that replicates the feeling of natural writing with pen and paper. Using VAIO Paper, you can write on your VAIO 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.

VAIO Clip

See an image on the web that would be a great addition to your presentation? Use VAIO Clip to trace or draw a freehand outline using the Active Pen accessory or your finger around the image. With intelligent and automatic edge detection you can quickly crop images in seconds. Then save the clip in the file manager which will automatically store the creation or modify date, the web page URL and tags, too.

Scan and Save

Quickly scan, archive, edit and share documents with the VAIO Scan app and rear camera on VAIO | Flip 13. Simply snap a photo of a document, letter, bill or even notes jotted on a whiteboard. From there, the image can easily be sent to a note app to edit or add comments of your own. You can also import photos from other sources such as a smartphone or camera and adjust them with VAIO Scan. Looking for something in particular? Conveniently search for archived files using OCR technology. It recognizes text within PDF documents saving you the hassle of searching through them one-by-one.

A Stroke of Genius

Use the Active Pen (select models, or sold separately) 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.

Capture Every Moment

Snap a self-portrait or video chat online – even in dimly-lit rooms thanks to VAIO | Flip PC's front-facing HD web camera featuring an Exmor R® sensor. Want to take photos and shoot video of the world around you? Select VAIO | Flip PCs feature a rear 8MP camera powered by a Sony Exmor RS® sensor that captures a crisp, bright picture, even when the light is less than perfect.

Whether you are done working for the day or just heading out to get some coffee, simply put the PC into sleep mode. Then, when you're ready to start again, resume in two seconds with your data safe and secure. If you are unplugged, don't worry about draining your battery. Your PC can stay in sleep mode for days2.

ClearAudio+ mode allows you to effortlessly enjoy audio quality that is distinctly Sony. One simple operation activates the perfect sound settings for your music and video. With Sony's unique sound processing technologies you will hear dynamic bass and soaring highs with less distortion for an unmatched music and movie experience.

Instant Exchange
