Sony's line of VAIO Flip PCs are a very interesting and beautiful concept for the future of Windows 8 computers. They appear to be Ultrabooks, but have a latch that releases the screen and allows the display to flip 180 degrees backward on a fulcrum. This year at CES 2014, Sony has just introduced a new addition to the lineup – the VAIO Fit 11A Flip PC.
The new 11A Flip PC will come pre-installed with the latest version of Microsoft's operating system, Windows 8.1, and will be bundled with a pressure-sensitive VAIO Active Pen for use in your favorite sketching applications. The pen will also be compatible with industry standard software such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.
We love to use digitizer pens to doodle in applications like Microsoft's Fresh Paint, but if you want to step it up, the new line of VAIO's will be including Adobe's Photoshop Elements 12 software absolutely free.
The VAIO Fit 11A Flip PC features an 11-inch screen and weighs in at 2.82 pounds. Consumers will be able to choose from a variety of color options including black, silver, and pink aluminum. Under the hood, the unit will house a solid state drive and Intel's latest Pentium quad-core processor.
The new VAIO Flip PC will be available this February at a starting price point of $799. If you are a fan of the other Flip PCs or any of Sony's other VAIO machines (VAIO Flip PC 13-inch, 14-inch and 15-inch, VAIO Tap 11, VAIO Tap 21 and VAIO Duo 13 and VAIO Fit 14E and 15E), they will be receiving a Windows 8.1 update and Photoshop Elements 12 this upcoming Spring.
Stay tuned to WPCentral for more CES news and, of course, a future review of the VAIO Fit 11A Flip PC!
