Sony has launched its Flip range of hybrid laptops in India, which it showcased earlier this month at CES in Las Vegas. The company has launched four variants of the Flip laptop in the country with prices starting from Rs 94,990.
The USP of these Windows 8.1 hybrid laptops is that the display can be flipped in three different angles. The first is the laptop mode, which is pretty self-explanatory, the second is called the viewer mode, wherein one can slightly lift the display and use like a display on stilts, and the last is the tablet mode wherein the display can be completely flipped over and it rests on the keyboard like a conventional tablet.
Talking of specifications, the Sony Vaio Flip F13N1A features a 13.3-inch full HD touch display, Intel’s fourth-generation processors (up to i7 clocked at 1.6GHz), Intel HD Graphics 4400, up to 8GB of RAM, up to 256GB SSD, a battery that lasts for up to 7.5 hours, an 8-megapixel rear camera and connectivity options like HDMI, Wi-Fi, USB 3.0 and NFC. The Vaio Flip F13N1A is priced at Rs 99,990.
The Vaio Flip F14N16 is priced at Rs 94,990 and features a 14-inch full HD touch display, Intel’s fourth generation processors (up to i7 clocked at 1.8GHz), Intel HD Graphics 4400, up to 8GB of RAM, up to 750GB hybrid drive, HD camera, a battery that lasts for up to 6 hours and connectivity options like HDMI, Wi-Fi, USB 3.0 and NFC.

The 15-inch Vaio Flip is available in two variants — the Vaio Flip F15N12 priced at Rs 104,990 and the Vaio Flip F15N17 priced at Rs 119,990.
