CES 2014: Sony Vaio Flip 11 swings into tablet mode

1:19 /

Sony's new 11-inch Windows 8 tablet comes with a stylus and a free copy of Photoshop Elements.

Sony's added a new 11 inch laptop to its hybrid series, this is the Flip 11. Let's take a look. So the Flip 11, as you might guess, has an 11 inch screen, it has a 1080p resolution and it looks pretty good to me although there are a lot of reflections so I'd worry about how easy it is to use in broad sunlight. This device's main feature though is that it has this flipping hinge on the back. So you pull the screen up like this and it locks into place with a few magnets and just like that you can transform it into tablet mode. If you're a kind of person who likes taking photos using a tablet, there's an 8 megapixel camera on the underside which is quite a nice addition. Sony says there are 3 modes for this thing, normal laptop mode, tablet mode and what they call display mode which is when you fold the hinge backwards like this. That's supposedly good if you're maybe on an airplane and you wanna watch some movies. You got a quad-core pentium chip. It has Windows 8.1 and there's a backlit keyboard as well. There are couple of other ticks in store too. It comes with a stylus and the full edition of Photoshop elements, which is good if you're the doodling type. It's coming out in the spring and it's gonna cost $800. Let me know what you think and check out ces.cnet.com for more.
