Last year, Sony put out one of the most practical solutions to the convertible problem with its “Flip” line of laptops. Now the backflipping, keyboard-stashing, laptop-tablet hybrid lines is getting a new member: an 11-incher, that comes loaded up with Photoshop Elements 12.
Inside, the Vaio Flip 11’s guts are on the meager side, with only 4GB of RAM and just a Intel Pentium N3520 for a brain, instead of a beefier Core i5, or even i3. But at a starting price of $US800 with Photoshop Elements 12 included, it starts looking a little bit better. And if you’re keen on the Flip style but want that tiny 11-inch portability, it’s your only option. Australian pricing and availability is yet to be announced.
