The Sony Vaio Tap 11 i5 is one of those hybrid budget notebooks presented by Sony that threads an unconventional path in the tablet world. Everything about the Tap 11 i5 screams a conscious attempt to combine a low-powered laptop component with a tablet's portability and weight.
The Tap 11 is made in a simple style, matte black body, and weighing approximately 1.7lbs. At a glance, you can quickly tell its apparent uniqueness- it can be used as a tablet or as a regular computer with its wireless keyboard and different screen display. The Core i5 configuration with 256 GB of the Sony Vaio Tap 11 costs about $1099. Its main specifications correspond to that of a budget laptop. It comes with a detachable ergonomic backlit keyboard, Multi-Touch trackpad with integrated buttons, a stylus pen for use with a digitizer, stereo speakers, and a battery capacity of 3800 mAh.
Sony proudly led an excellent impression with the Tap 11 i5, but it's been years since its launch, and there is certainly a lot to look forward to in newer generation gadgets. If you have been looking for the best way to make a trade-in of your Tap 11 i5 for a more recent gadget, Gizmogo is the right place to begin. We can also purchase your used device at the best market rate. We would love to hear from you; call us today!
Design Info: If first impressions count for anything, the design of the Sony Vaio Tap 11 gives a flying start. It provides a stunning display with a glossy black front and a smart bezel surrounding the screen from the front. The Tap 11's body feels taut, compact, and well-constructed. Soft-touch matte black plastics cover it with rubberized edges making it very comfy to hold in one hand and easy to grip.
The Tap 11 is a skinny tablet. However, its lightweight does not in any way cut from its durability. It is just 0.39 inches thick and weighs 771.0 grams which are still lighter than most core i5 gadgets in the same category. Therefore, it is the perfect device to include if you are packing for a trip that also involves work; you won't have to worry about the inconvenience of weight when performing your everyday tasks.
The home button of the Tap 11 i5 is located along the bottom, parallel to the camera at the top. Sony also included a well-hidden IR blaster along the top edge of the case so that it can be enabled as a remote control for all your home entertainment. It also comes with an HDMI port, a USB 3.0 slot, and a jack for connecting its power adapter along the left-hand side of the slate. The right-hand side of the slate provides for a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microSD card slot.
The back of the device has a slender fold-out kickstand that is highly adjustable. It stays put in any direction you position it.
The wireless keyboard doubles up as a screen protector when you need one. The keyboard has a brushed aluminum rear, and its back is pretty smooth and cool to touch. Since it's wireless, the keyboard only charges itself when it is connected to the front of the tablet magnetically. Sadly there is no other way to charge it, so you might want to be a little more conscious of that. In addition to this, the stylus pen is also remarkable; it is ideal for drawing or note-taking. Although there is no dedicated stylus slot, Sony provided a clip that attaches to the tablet and acts as a pen holster.
Display Info: The Sony Vaio Tap 11 i5 sports a 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution, an 11.6-inches display with a Triluminous technology, a pixel density of 190 ppi, and about 64.75% screen-to-body covering. The screen has a fairly wide viewing angle, giving the best video playing and gaming experience.
Camera Info: It comes with an 8-megapixel primary camera on the back (3264 x 2449 pixels) and a 2-megapixel front camera (1280 x 720 pixels). The primary camera produces a far more balanced picture when compared to the front camera.
The camera captures at 720p, and under artificial lighting, it produces a strong picture. However, overall, the camera quality of the Sony Vaio Tap 11 i5 is pretty average, so you shouldn't consider using the device solely as a camera.
Battery Info: The Sony Vaio Tap 11 i5 comes with a 3,800 mAh lithium polymer battery. Although Sony worked very hard to make the Tap 11 an endearing device, the battery life is one of its significant flops. It has a runtime of about 5 hours when in active use following a full charge.
Audio Info: The speakers are located on the tablet's backside and appear slightly vented but are still loud at total volume. Upon a review, the Tap 11 pumped out audio at 74 decibels, which is lower than the 83-decibel category for average tablets within its price range.
Performance Info: The Sony Vaio Tap 11 i5 runs on the Windows 8 64-bit Edition. The processor takes pride in the Core i5-4210Y and operates at only 1.5GHz, with Turbo Boost pushing it up to 1.9GHz.
The Tap 11 i5 is made for work in terms of speed, and it performs well for a 2-in-1 tablet. It has a competent processor and comes with the ability to run all your regular Windows software without delay. Handling your everyday tasks efficiently isn't a problem for the Tap 11 i5. You can run up to 6 applications at the same time without noticing any discernable hiccups. Even with running heavyweight applications like Adobe Photoshop or Sony Vegas Pro, everything comes with ease.
Water-resistance Info: Unlike the Xperia Z smartphones and tablets, the Tap 11 is not water-resistant. This means that you should keep it very far away from water to avoid damage.
Weight Info: The Tap 11 i5 is very lightweight, even with the wireless keyboard included. It weighs approximately 780grams and measures 304.6mm x 188mm x 10.5mm (W x D x H).
