The Sony Vaio Tap 21 looks like a regular slim desktop all-in-one PC, or a monitor. Its rear kickstand is minimal and effective.

The front is simple and attractive: the display looked pretty good in our hands-on time.

There's something appealing about how simple PCs like the Tap 21 are.

The Tap 21 can bend back to a variety of angles, including flat, but when lifted back up the kickstand slowly springs back into shape.

At 8 pounds, the Tap 21 is a lot lighter than you'd expect, more like a large laptop.

I would carry this around my home, but maybe not to the coffee shop.
