Sony Vaio Tap 11 vs Microsoft Surface Pro

Posted on 01 October 2013, Last updated on 03 January 2014 by

If there’s one device in the market that messes with my head it’s the Sony Vaio Tap 11. It’s a 11.6-inch tablet built on an Ultrabook platform so I write about it at Ultrabooknews. It’s also a 780gm Windows tablet running core so therefore an Ultra Mobile PC! Argh!

Pricing for the Tap 11 makes the issue even harder because it starts at a tempting 799 Euros.

All the Sony Vaio Tap 11 specifications are now in the database along with new images, my hands-on video and links to other articles. I’ve also detailed some of the other pricing and done some Pro 2 vs Tap 11 analysis in a new article over at Ultrabooknews.

The key thing here is that the Vaio Tap 11 is lighter which helps in a lot of consumer tablet scenarios. I’ve had the 760 gram 11.6-inch Samsung ATIV 500T for a while so I know it’s a comfortable tablet in sofa-mode. In addition the 11.6-inch screen will aid productivity.

Sorry for the two-site switch everybody!
