Who Would Buy This?

The Sony VAIO Flip 11A is the perfect choice for those who want the features of Sony’s flip PCs, but find the larger versions to be a bit too big or too pricey. It’s compact, which makes it highly portable, and the features you loved in the bigger convertibles are not at all compromised.


Things We Like

The first thing you’d love about the Sony VAIO Flip 11A laptop to tablet convertible is its classy and versatile design. No matter which color you choose – silver, black, or pink – its aluminum lid and keyboard deck will never look out of place in any setting, whether it’s for work, school, or play. The versatility becomes more apparent once it is converted. All it takes to turn this laptop into a tablet is a simple slide of the Lock to Release switch, which is conveniently located above the keyboard. Push back the top corners, flip it over, close it all the way back, and voila! You have an instant tablet. You can also set it up like a canvas on an easel, for when you are giving presentations, or you want to make use of the stylus and the included Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 software.

We also like the quality of the 11.6-inch touch screen, and this is mainly due to Sony’s Triluminos display technology – which was mainly used in Sony HDTV products. Clarity, detail, and color become even more enhanced. We also enjoy the responsiveness of the touch screen to even the slightest finger tap or brush. The Active Pen stylus is also a great addition, since it is also very responsive to different levels of pressure you apply to it.

 Things We Don’t Like

The likelihood of the stylus getting lost is very high since the Sony VAIO Flip 11A does not provide any slot where it can be stored.


The Sony VAIO Flip 11A laptop has a 1-year accidental damage protection warranty.

Is It Worth The Money?

Considering that the Sony VAIO Flip 11A is more affordable than the other flip PCs from Sony, and the other convertible units offered by other brands, forking out the $799.00 won’t be too much of a hardship.

 Where Can I Buy?

The Sony VAIO Flip 11A can be purchased directly from the Sony store and other authorized dealers. Or you could just get it online from trusted sellers. Amazon is a good choice, since they offer the best deals for electronics products, and you can even get free shipping for it!
