hey all I just registered after finding this excellent thread on a google search about the Flip 15a I am just about to purchase one of these - clearance stock/clearance price. Spec-wise it's the 15" Ci7/12GB RAM/1TB HDD/2GBgfx/Win8.1/Black The question I have, and couldn't find in the thread ( I didn't read all 90 pages though...): Is it possible to buy a replacement stylus? I see N-trig mentioned regarding these so I guess that is the company Sony get the tech/hardward from, can the compatible pens be bought elsewhere? I mainly see the Flip 15A as a good all-round family multimedia PC. It'll do for light gaming, store loads of photos and video, and has enough grunt to do Photoshop work and the odd bit of video editing. To me the graphics tablet function is a very nice fat cherry on top. My son the budding architect should get some use out of it. Any other general comments about the Flip 15A gratefully received, with the above in mind, i.e. it's not being bought as a pro graphics tablet.
