They did, then they sold off the Vaio brand and someone else started building Vaios again, not Sony.

i am certain that your opinion have considered the following:
1. it has 95% adobe RGB panel. to put in respective, the best screen you can find from apple laptop (the retina 15) only has 74% adobe RGB. and before you say "RETINA", do note that this laptop has higher PPI than any macbook out there.

2. the storage is PCIE-SSD, and for your reference, the market price for 512G PCIE-SSD is about 350 dollars if you buy from newegg.

3. the processor within this tablet is a quad core i7 with iris pro. the only other laptop that uses such setup is 2015, 15 inch macbook pro.

4. it also comes with pen and keyboard.


so with that said, might i ask you which part of this system is overpriced? just name 1.


that said. i used this laptop for a while and didn't like it due to reasons such as keyboard, weight (as a tablet), kickstand, but i would not say this unit is overpriced.

I doubt it, there's a reason why wacom is the go-to brand for pen-based digital inputs. There are very small use cases for these digitizer-based touch screens (college students, etc). They might enjoy it, but for them to really do their jobs, I'd recommend a large wacom tablet.

That's fairly inaccurate. The Cintiq 13HD Touch is $1000, only Full HD, only reaches 75%AdobeRGB, is not a full computer. I love the Cintiq lineup but Ntrig pens and digitizers are overall better than the hobbyist Wacom setups in devices such as the surface pro 2, etc. The cintiq is still an overall better drawing tablet than any other line of devices but the gap between usability of pro Wacom devices and the good quality ntrig devices is ever shrinking. It's not fair to say that graphics artists can only use Wacom anymore. This device was created specifically for digital art and is extremely good for that purpose. The lower end of the Cintiq lineup basically requires the use of a secondary display for accurate color rendering which means an extra $400 to $1000 for a good quality, well calibrated monitor with 99%+ AdobeRGB. The Vaio Canvas is a good quality, portable, all-in-one device for digital art that will be sufficient for the majority of graphics artists; if not as a primary device, then certainly as a supplemental one.

I often wonder what is the durability of the batteries in these devices. I generally am able to keep my devices for 5 years or longer. If these tablet-esque devices are designed with obsolescence in mind, with the battery being the primary catalyst,....then this isn't a worthy buy.

My Dell XPS 13 has an i7 with Iris Pro graphics - specifically the 6560u processor. So there are others, but not many.
