Despite showing alongside the likes of dell, hp and microsoft, vaio was a stand-out. as indicated from the dedicated vaio booth staff and 200-plus completed questionnaires, the creative community is absolutely excited about the vaio z canvas. feedback was universally positive about all of the features the vaio z canvas has to offer. attendees loved the stylus and were impressed with the responsiveness and accuracy that it offered. the performance of the stylus can be contributed directly to the 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity supported by the pen. the unique optical resin between the lcd and glass along with software calibration reduces the parallax providing an unrivaled drawing experience. attendees were impressed by the overall speed and performance of the vaio z canvas. many commented that its speed and responsiveness far exceeded that of any other 2-in-1 pc at the event. others favored the abundance of ports providing unparalleled connectivity which include 2 usb 3.0 ports, full size sd memory card reader, hdmi output and more. the most talked about feature by far was the adjustable kickstand coupled with detachable keyboard. the audience found that the adjustable angle of the screen and the flexibility of placing the keyboard to either side created a more natural, comfortable user experience.
