Sony Vaio Flip 15


The Vaio Flip 15 still faces the same question that has bedeviled other hybrids before: How do you solve the age-old (or at least a few years old) problem of building a tablet and laptop into a single device? We've certainly seen plenty of possible...

The slim, powerful Sony Vaio Flip 15 is a sharp-looking 15-inch hybrid that works great in its laptop mode, and has some very high-end options.

The tablet mode doesn't lie completely flat, battery life should be better, and the screen is especially glossy.

Sony's unique attempt at a big-screen hybrid looks great and is reasonably priced, but it works better as a laptop than a tablet.

Sony VAIO Flip 15 review: Sony's new convertible is cheaper, bigger than most


More InfoSony teases flexible VAIO PCSony announces VAIO Flip PCSony VAIO Tap 11 reviewWhen Sony first teased the VAIO Flip series, we were

Attractive ; Innovative design ; Mostly reliable trackpad ; Bright IPS display, optional 2,880 x 1,620 resolution

Big and heavy for a convertible ; Disappointing battery life ; Can get loud ; Some performance bugs (fixes coming)

The Flip series has an innovative design, but the 15-inch version doesn't make much sense unless you need the discrete graphics or the 2,880 x 1,620 screen.

"Would not buy one again. not good enough to be a tablet or a laptop"


Had nothing but issues with the back cover of the lap top popping off everytime you move the screen. touch screen is not sensitive enough to be a tablet.

"Multimedia center - The best of both worlds"


The best laptop available now. When I use it on meetings, always hear some wows. The tablet (touchscreen and flip) capacities are nice, specially if you like to see movies there. The playback is very smooth.

Sharp 2880x1620 screen, the touchscreen and flip feels right

No optical drive.

"The best high end professional digitizer Tablet+Laptop thus far"


After years of waiting for a true Engineering desktop replacement laptop that supported a digitizer, the Sony Flip 15 comes along. And then it's gone! I had to purchase my refurbished unit from a liquidator, though I am hard pressed to find any defects...

Sharp 2880x1620 screen, 16GB RAM and easy user upgradability

No longer available

This is a great laptop that can be used like a tablet. I use this as a work system and it is great. During meetings I use the Note Anytime with the active you are not just tied to what you can can also draw illustrations your notes....

Screen Size, Sturdy design, In pad mode keys are not resting on my lap, good battery with no 3D applications active

"A great product unfairly getting a mixed rap."


OK, disclaimer: I have the 14" screen. Not 15". The complaints about this machine have concerned screen sensitivity (erratic; noisy fan; lack of FN key control over brightness; poor wifi reception. Most who have these problems, as it turns out, never...

Build quality; looks; great design; fast; battery life; great screen and screen positioning.

No optical drive.
