    <<...Anyone heard any news about vaio releasing a new version of the canvas...>>

    ...Nothing that I am aware of, but it's more likely that our members in Japan are better positioned to pick up on any rumors.

    In addition, I wouldn't expect to hear anything until the KabyLake H-class processors are available. IIRC, that's not until early next year???

    Here's some recent data on release dates for KabyLake:

    Based on this, if a refresh happens, it'll be mid-to-late Spring '17.

    Maybe we should just send a letter to VAIO?

    If they say something like "coming soon" then we could reasonably hope for a refresh by Q2 of next year.

    But then again considering how much they hyped up the release of first Canvas, I think we should have at least seen some sort of promotion campaign by now... (tear)

    Too be honest, Vaio is going through restructuring of management at the moment. I fear that zaps the company of energy.
