The Desktop Goes Mobile

 

Windows 8 has hardware manufacturers trying out some new dance moves. We've seen a wave of oddball hybrid devices running Microsoft's new touch-sensitive, power-sipping OS, most of which combine a portable tablet with a sliding or detachable keyboard....

Crazy enough to work: The battery-equipped Sony Vaio Tap 20 all-in-one

 

Mashing together tablet and desktop, the Sony Vaio Tap 20 might just be the most interesting Windows 8-launch PC.

By slapping a battery inside a 20-inch touch-screen all-in-one to make the ; , the company has given birth to a new PC category with great potential in tech-savvy homes.

The touch screen has some frustrating drag, and Sony made a few missteps among some otherwise reasonable sacrifices for portability and price.

A compelling experiment in tablet-desktop hybridization, the Sony Vaio Tap 20 is a great fit for home tech enthusiasts willing to try something new.

Sony VAIO Tap 20 (SVJ20215CXW)

 

The Sony VAIO Tap 20 is an all-in-one touch-screen desktop with an integrated battery.

Large screen. Has 10-finger multitouch screen. Innovative hinge and kickstand. Includes wireless keyboard and mouse. Comes with a battery for (limited) portability.

Mobile components limit performance. Not full 1080p HD. Only single-band Wi-Fi. Only 30-day subscription to Internet Security updates. Less than two hours battery life.

Sony VAIO Tap 20 Review

 

As an idea this Sony desktop-tablet hybrid isn't without its merits, but it's still far from perfection. If you always dreamt of buying a stylish, space-saving all-in-one desktop with a built-in battery, the Sony VAIO Tap 20 is worth looking into. It...

Sony VAIO Tap 20 Hybrid Tablet PC Review

 

The Sony VAIO Tap 20 is an awesome hybrid mobile device for Windows 8 that brings the touch experience to life, but an old school 5400RPM hard drive that was first released in 2010 makes the Tap 20 sluggish.

Sony VAIO Tap 20 all-in-one PC

 

This touchscreen PC has a built-in battery -- you can use it on your couch

Built-in battery ; Large screen (for a tablet) ; Versatile design

Heavy, cumbersome ; Low screen resolution ; Bundled keyboard and mouse aren’t great

Sony’s VAIO Tap 20 wants to bridge the gap between your study desk and your couch. With its internal battery it’s good for around 90 minutes of Web browsing or video watching -- not a huge amount, but better than nothing. It’s got Ultrabook-class...
