The screen has in-plane switching (IPS) technology and LED backlighting for a wide viewing angle as well as accurate color.
The VAIO Tap 21 is an all-in-one desktop computer, but it also has a built-in battery so you're not tethered to the power outlet on the wall. With up to 2 hours and 30 minutes on a single charge (battery life may vary depending on use), you'll be able to move around the home or office without having to shut down and reboot your computer. When you're running low on battery life, you can just plug the VAIO Tap 21 into the wall to start charging without interrupting your computer experience.
The system is powered by a dual-core 4th generation Haswell 1.8GHz Intel Core i7-4500U processor.

The VAIO Tap 21 also comes with an included wireless keyboard and laser mouse.
The VAIO Tap 21 comes with the Windows 8 operating system. Windows 8 has a completely redesigned user interface.
