Sony's new VAIO Slimtop Pen Tablet PCV-LX900 - product review

Post by LeahG on Mon 8 Mar - 7:04

I was wondering if there was a pc screen that lay flat so you could draw straight onto it, rather than looking at an upright screen and drawing onto a tablet and I found it here:

http://pcworld.about.com/magazine/1903p058id38897.htm

The product details say this:

" Mousing and typing are fine for most PC chores, but when it comes to graphics, they're a poor substitute for good old-fashioned drawing and scribbling. But until now, the closest you could get to using a pen on a desktop PC was to use a stylus on a pen tablet--not exactly an intuitive skill.

Sony's new VAIO Slimtop Pen Tablet PCV-LX900 is a full-blown Windows PC that bypasses this cumbersome routine: It allows you to write with a stylus directly onto a sleek touch screen that you can either adjust to lie flat or set upright to use with a conventional keyboard and mouse. This terrific feature should appeal to professional graphic artists and photo editors, and thanks to some ingenious software that comes bundled with the machine, it should be a lot of fun for novices too. "


How magnificent!

Meanwhile the reviews on Amazon aren't very good in terms of the product failing after a few months - year and there not being good back-up support, see here:

How much?
$3000 in the USA. re the UK, I can't find a price! Everyone seems to be out of stock.

Not a good sign.

Sad

$ 3000 in the USA is not a good sign either. May have to wait for it to become a bit more old fashioned anyway.

I have the SONY VAIO lX910 and it is FANTASTIC to draw right on the screen! The 15" screen is nice! I had the monitor screen serviced so that the line issue will never happen. I've got a tablet PC as well.

Would you be interested in buying my VAIO Slimtop? I don't get around to using it as much as I should.
It also has Sketchbook Pro 2010 installed on it. THEY GO GREAT TOGETHER!

Hi Td

re the VAIO

I am going to create a forum where members can offer bits and bobs they have for sale and ask for 'wanted' items, so you can pop your offer there if you like?

Hey,...that would be great!

Sorry for mentioning it here,....I thought about it as soon as I posted and thought that there perhaps might need to be a more appropriate place for stuff like this.

thanks,
Todd

No need to apologise, I don't think of these things until the need arises, so it's all good.

The new forum is in the members section. Smile
