The Sony Vaio Tap 20 is designed to leverage the intuitive ease of Windows 8, opening up exciting new possibilities to interact with apps and your media collection. Portable, battery-powered Sony Vaio Tap 20 fits right into any living space - from bedrooms and kids’ play areas to the kitchen or garden.

Flip out the in-built stand and tilt Vaio Tap 20 at a comfortable angle for ‘lean back’ photo/movie editing by touch operation, browsing and entertainment.

The Vaio Tap 20 tablet PC's 50.8 cm (20”) panel offers clear, bright images with a wide angle of view. Responsive 10-point multi-touch operation let's all the family join in simultaneously with multi-player games. Mobile Bravia Engine 2 by Sony ensures crisp, natural movie viewing with fine details and fluid on-screen movement.

Generously-sized stereo speakers are partnered by an on-board subwoofer that boosts low frequencies for solid, thumping bass. S-Force Front Surround 3D technologies by Sony ensure a vibrant, room-filling soundtrack - whether you’re playing games together or watching movies on the Sony Vaio 20.
