In recent years, more and more PC manufacturers have launched two-in-one notebooks, and VAIO is no exception. Today, this company officially launched the VAIO A12 notebook in Japan, using the new Stabilizer Flap structure to achieve more ‘forms’ and solve the problems of the most two-in-one notebooks.
The VAIO A12 has five modes, including laptop mode, tablet mode, view mode, folding view mode, and wireless keyboard mode.
As said, the Stabilizer Flap structure solves the traditional two-in-one notebooks’ problems. The back bracket takes up a lot of space; it is impossible to adjust the angle; they have a thick bottom and so on. Due to the new technology and design, the VAIO A12 is way lighter. At the same time, stable multi-angle adjustments can be achieved.
The VAIO A12 lowest version is equipped with the Celeron 3965Y processor. But there are other models packed with the Core m3-8100Y, i5-8200Y, and i7-8500Y processors. They are equipped with up to 16GB of memory onboard, up to 1TB SSD (PCI-E), and a 12.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080.
The VAIO A12 comes with a variety of interfaces, including three USB, one Type-C 3.0, one HDMI, one VGA, one RJ45 network port, and one SD card slot. The weight of the body is 1.009kg- 1.114kg. In the tablet mode, you can get 7.4-8.1 hours of endurance. But when the keyboard is connected, it will last for 15 hours.
In terms of selling price, in Japan, the VAIO A12 is priced at 168,000 yen ($1474), while the All Black version is priced at 238,800 yen ($2095). It’s expected that this 2-in-1 laptop will go on sale globally next year.
