Flip is in, it seems. From the Sony labs comes the latest , and it is called the Vaio Flip 11a. What you would get to encounter is a notebook that sports an 11.6 inch, full HD display that actually flips backward to transform itself into a slate.

All you need to do is to you push the display back by 180 degrees over a hinge. The screen will them look away from the keyboard  and fold the lid down to reveal a tablet.

A truly out and out convertible, the Vaio Flip 11a sets itself apart from others of its ilk by allowing you to switch from tablet to laptop mode.  A pressure-sensitive digital pen adds the support element to your sessions with the device.


The digital pen is called the Vaio Active Pen by folks at Sony. It is so unique that all you have to do to use it is to hover it over the tablet to move an on-screen cursor. You will be able to perform all tasks like items, access drop-down menus, and others easily with the Active Pen, made by N-trig.

Features that Sony has thrown into the device include a 1920 x 1080 pixel display, 8GB of RAM, and an Intel Core i7 processor.

Considering that the Sony Vaio Flip 11a, with the Vaio Active Pen comes for starting price of $799, the sweetness grows manifold.
