Bringing a new form factor to the design of VAIO notebooks, Sony is introducing the new VAIO Fit A, featuring a multi-flip hinge that provides users with a variety of new ways to use their mobile PCs while still enjoying the full functionality of a traditional clamshell laptop.
The new VAIO Fit multi-flip PC aims to suit the computing needs of everyone and is available in 15-inch and 13-inch sizes.
The highlight of the VAIO Fit multi-flip PC’s design is its revolutionary new multi-flip hinge, which makes it capable of flipping and converting between laptop, tablet and viewer modes by flipping the display over the hinge.
The laptop mode comfortably accommodates highly productive work, the same way as conventional notebook PCs. In tablet mode, it is best utilised for browsing the web, taking pictures, and writing with the digitizer stylus.
Lastly, with the viewer mode, the display can be flipped over so that you can share the experience of watching a video or movie with another viewer. This makes the VAIO Fit multi-flip PC adaptable for any use, be it for professionals, students, designers or the everyday PC user.
Structured in a stylish, functional design; its thin chassis is constructed with an aluminium hairline finish. The notebook comes with a full pitch keyboard, touch pad and palm rest to give users a comfortable typing experience, as well as a backlit keyboard which allows for work in low-light conditions.
The VAIO Inspiration Suite aims to replace the necessity of pen and paper with a collection of core apps that allow users to seamlessly capture, edit and organise content on their VAIO notebooks.
The VAIO Fit multi-flip PC comes pre-loaded with a trio of apps to help users unleash their creativity: after shooting and reorienting images on CamScanner, users can then clip out the subject of the image using VAIO Clip, and write memos on top of the images with their digitizer stylus1 in VAIO Paper. This gives users the same experience as drafting or sketching with pen and paper and much more.
Incorporating the best of Sony’s digital imaging expertise, the Exmor RS for PC imaging sensor found on the VAIO Fit 13A makes it possible to take high-resolution images of documents. Images are clear enough for the computer to recognise and tag texts in the photos, which works harmoniously with the CamScanner app. The back-illuminated CMOS sensor also ensures that there is reduced noise in low-light situations.
Besides the Exmor RS for PC sensor, Sony has incorporated other technologies into the VAIO Fit multi-flip PC such as the TRILUMINOS display for mobile and X-Reality for mobile, adapted from technology used in the Sony BRAVIA 2013 range of TVs.
These allow for a more vivid reproduction of colours on screen and ensure the sharpest picture quality. The VAIO Fit multi-flip PC is also powered to deliver dynamic bass and soaring highs without distortion with the ClearAudio+ mode that uses a variety of sound technologies to deliver a superior audio performance.
With one simple operation, users can enjoy music with the levels of sharpness and depth that the artist intended.
