How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Sony's portable all-in-one Tap 21 takes some steps forward, though it still remains a very niche product. The exterior of the newest Tap has been improved, adding more aluminum to give it what About calls "a bit more premium feel." Sadly, this doesn't make overall size and weight any better, but PC Mag says it's still "portable around the house." With this update Sony also bumped up the internal specs a bit, making it "enough for most users' day-to-day computing needs" according to HotHardware, though Computer Shopper also says it should be fine even for "serious image editing." Not everyone will need a portable all-in-one, but for families who need a machine that everyone can use, the Tap 21 is well worth your consideration.
