      Comments about Sony VAIO Tap 20 SVJ20215CXB 20" All-in-One Desktop Computer (Black):

      I find the Sony Tap 20 to be a perfect computer for me. I can leave it on the desk or take it to any room in the house or on the patio, and have a great experience with it. The screen is large enough to make it a pleasure to watch anything. I had never used a computer at work, so all my knowledge of it has come from working out any problems I have had. I was very skeptible about Windows 8 because of all the negative reports I had read. However, in my reshearch on line, I found a reviewer who had his mom check out operating systems, and she absolutely hated Windows 8 and would never concider using it. However, in an up-dated review, he put her on a Sony Tap 20, and gave her a few promps, and she turned her opinion around. In watching it, I could see that the combination of a large touch screen and windows 8 might work. From the first moment I used it, I found that to be the case. It's just a great fit. I am 65 years old, and I don't use a smart phone. I did buy a 7" tablet, a few months ago, but gave it away cause it was just to small for me.
      Also, the keyboard and mouse work extremely well.
      One futher point, I see a lot of reviews that mention the Tap's portability. I find I just hold it by the two side inserts, and take it to where i'm going with no hastle at all. But again, its great for the house, but your not likely to take it with you anywhere else.

      the only glitch for me is that, on occasions, my touch will not result in the action I'm touching the screen for, and I have to tap it just right to make it work.

      Comments about Sony VAIO Tap 20 SVJ20215CXB 20" All-in-One Desktop Computer (Black):

      I own many different computers, such as a desktop, several laptops and several tablets. I bought each of them not only for their usefulness, but for their uniqueness, as well. It is also for these reasons that I bought the Vaio Tap 20. I can take it from room-to-room, outside, as well as public spots, such as restaurants, coffee shops, etc. people flip when they see what they think is a very large tablet and then see the stand flip out to become an all-in-one-- WITH NO WIRES. I keep it on my bedside each night and use it whenever I have a need to reference something, download a song or movie or make a purchase. I have seen the white, which is nice, but ordered the black and am ecstatic about it! Excellent computer...
