In August, Sony announced plans to release the Windows 8-based Vaio Duo 11 notebook-tablet hybrid and the Vaio Tap 20 all-in-one PC, both with touch screen support. Today, the company revealed the prices for these new PCs, along with revealing more Windows 8-based touch screen notebooks.
The Vaio Duo 11 will have a starting price of $1099.99. As Sony previously announced, the design of the hybrid will include a slider that moves the screen up to expose the physical keyboard. The 2.84 pound Vaio Duo 11 will have a choice of Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processors, along with 4 GB or 8 GB of RAM and either an 128 GB or 256 GB SSD. The 11.6 inch screen will have a resolution of 1920x1080, two cameras (front and rear) two USB 3.0 ports and a HDMI port.
The Vaio Tap 20, as previously reported, has been designed to lay flat on a table or on a floor. The 20 inch screen can then be used by more than one person to play games or, as you can see above, to do some artistic work. It can come with an Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processor, along with 4 GB or 8 GB of RAM and either an 750 GB or 1 TB hard drive. It also has a web cam and two USB 3.0 ports. It even can run on battery power, although there's no word on how long it will last without a cord.
Sony also announced that it will launch a number of new Vaio-branded notebooks, some of which can be configured to have a touch screen for an additional price. All of these new Windows 8-based PCs are scheduled to ship on October 26th.
