As part of my ongoing discussion with @Steve S about contacting VAIO, I thought I'd re-post this little excerpt for people who may be still interested: After considering this for a while, I've come to conclusion that I won't simply talk about feature improvements, but rather make a business case for the Canvas 2. Essentially, it boils down to this: there still is no portable workstation tablet. ...aside from (ironically) the original Canvas itself. However, for digital creatives, the original is hamstring by a small screen and now, outdated connectivity. It's a very simple business case actually. Digital creatives are used to working with 15" 4K displays (XPS 9560, MBP15, MSP16) with a decent amount of graphics prowess (~GTX1050) and the ability to dock to a full desktop setup (via TB3). Now VAIO still is only manufacturer able to design a 47W system to run smoothly, silently and long. Yes, I said long battery life, because having a Haswell quadcore run for about 4.5 hours on a mixed-workload, with no special battery saving on the user's part, is actually nothing short of amazing. Vaio has done more than simply design an amazing and unrivaled cooling system, but also expertly tuned the CPU profile and motherboard firmware. Their PCB design skills are simply second to none. Now somehow this message was lost in the poor marketing launch of the Canvas. I partly blame reviewers, but mostly the blame falls on a dilute and almost non-existent ad campaign—in the West. I mean this is beautiful advertising! Why isn't this translated into English?! It's a unique, well-produced and most importantly, very inspiring usecase for many digital creatives. So really, VAIO has the technical expertise and marketing chops to offer something simply unmatched in the market. Not just a great tablet, but the best performing mobile workstation under 2kg. The market is still strong for digital creatives (Dell, Apple and MS are all chasing it) but VAIO offers something no other company can. I know I'm probably going to get beaten to the ground for saying this, but I say the business and marketing prospects for VAIO are actually good!
