Sony Vaio Tap 20


A 20-inch lifestyle PC that doubles as a super-giant tablet.

Versatile stand, Reasonably good-looking, Responsive touchscreen

Heavy, Expensive, Display doesn't cut it as a tablet screen

Sony Vaio Tap 20 review


This diminuitive 20in Sony is a bit of a wild card. Is it a desktop? Is it a giant tablet? Is it, perhaps, both? That's what Sony is going for with the Tap 20. It's a PC with a 20in screen and a fold-away stand, allowing it to either be a standard...

Sony Vaio Tap 20 review


A 20-inch Windows 8 tablet that fails to live up to the promise

Big, bright screen ; Built-in battery ; Bundled accessories ; USB 3.0 ports

Incredibly heavy ; Poor screen resolution ; Schizophrenic personality ; Middling performance

In 2012, Ultrabooks have turned the affordable laptop market on its head, touchscreens have attached themselves to every available panel, and tablet-laptop hybrids have left us questioning whether laptops are really even a thing any more.

Sony VAIO Tap 20 review - Sony's 20in tablet is an all-in-one PC


The Sony VAIO Tap 20 is, in effect, a 20in all-in-one PC, along the lines of the Apple iMac. It comes bundled with a rather lightweight plastic wireless keyboard and mouse, but giving it a touch-sensitive screen means that you can ditch those and...

Spec sheet aside, the Sony VAIO Tap 20 does work well as a family PC that can be shared by several people and easily carried from room to room. After a few days of testing we got used to having it on hand for a quick spot of web browsing or firing up...

Sony Vaio Tap 20 review


We first got a hands-on with Sony's distinctive Vaio Tap 20 all-in-one PC at IFA in August, but its official UK release means that we're finally able to really put it through its paces in our labs. Designed to work with Windows 8, this is among the...

Sony succesfully splices tablet and all-in-one DNA to create this ingenious hybrid

Super-sized tablet or family PC? Sony's Windows 8 wonder is a bit of both

Sony VAIO Tap 20 review


The Tap 20 is an unusual product. It's relatively underpowered as a desktop system, but its strong suit is as a shared family PC, with the ability to be moved easily around the home. And its potential as a shared gaming device is impressive....

Sony VAIO Tap 20 review


A battery-powered all-in-one? Sony scores for originality but the benefits are marginal

A Windows 8 all-in-one lives or dies by its touchscreen performance, and here the Tap 20 lives up to its name. It’s perfectly responsive to a swish of the finger, with no evidence of the stuttering that marred the Toshiba LX830.

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...

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....
