Recognized by Lenovo’s Yoga-like design, when in laptop mode the 11.6″ Flip features a backlit keyboard and a touchpad. Given its “lightweight, innovative design”, you flip the keyboard to the back to convert it into tablet mode. Sony also added its Active Pen which is accompanied by the VAIO Paper drawing and writing app that’s meant to be your digital notebook.

It will also be shipped with the new VAIO Inspiration SuiteAdobe’s that includes goodies such as Adobe’s latest Photoshop Elements 12 and ArtRage Studio pre-installed. Other software features are VAIO Scan which is meant to let you capture quality copies of letters and business cards using the rear-facing camera. Another feature is VAIO Clip which lets you create expertly cut-out images from the web for dropping into documents and presentations.
