    I just checked around to see if I could get a Canvas to Europe, but when browing the US Vaio site I saw the Canvas was discontinued.?

    Anybody know why? And if it's coming back?

    Sony has always seemed to cycle through more styles than others

    Perhaps, but Sony isn't making the Canvas.

    It's been "discontinuing" for a while now. When it came out it was 1 rev behind in CPU design, and now that's grown to 3+ rev's back, so it's not a big surprise that it's been discontinued.

    I had been waiting for VAIO to follow up with a new design using current technology, but so far nothing.

    You can still find the Canvas Z through other outlets than VAIO, with nice price drops - it used to be sooo overpriced:

    AIO Z Canvas 12.3-Inch Laptop (Core i7 Quad Core, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, Windows 10 Pro) - $1373.59 (more models too)
    https://www.amazon.com/VAIO-Canvas-12-3-Inch-Laptop-Windows/dp/B015QDEZMO

    There was a big "closeout" sale a year ago on Microsoft Store's site:

    Save up to $1,700 off the VAIO Z Canvas Signature Edition 2-in-1 from the Microsoft Store

    Today, there aren't any VAIO laptops listed on Microsoft Store:
