Engadget Review

At $800 with a keyboard included, the Tap 11 seems tempting. However, to hit that aggressive price, Sony compromised on build quality and also settled for weak starting specs.

Pros
  • Thin and light designBright display, wide viewing anglesSturdy kickstandPen input works well Keyboard and pen included
Cons
  • Some build quality issuesFinicky touchscreen (a fix is coming)Starts with a Pentium CPU
