Sony rolls out new all-in-one Vaios
Everyone knows that Sony’s Vaio range is one that definitely breaks the bank, although they are extremely stylish to look at and won’t look out of place in any modern home. Sony isn’t stopping the momentum anytime soon, having introduced a trio of all-in-one Vaios – the JS, LV and RT desktop models. These space savers are ideal for everyday computing tasks such as word processing and number crunching, and also work great if you want to edit high definition video content. Being fashion forward does not mean Sony has ditched their computing ability – these models not only function as a PC, but double up as an HDTV and Blu-ray Disc player as well.
The VAIO JS All-in-One desktop chassis comes with a storage space for your keyboard, featuring a 20.1″ LCD display that has Sony’s very own XBRITE-ECO LCD technology for razor-sharp images in crisp, vivid detail. There is an option to include a Blu-ray Disc drive, but that will add to the bottomline, of course. Additional features are an integrated microphone and a web cam with face-tracking technology. It will retail from $1,000 upwards and is available in black, silver and pink colors.
As for the Vaio LV, this model takes on a floating mirror design which won’t look out of place as your living room’s entertainment hub. You will find a lovely 24″ WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200 resolution) widescreen high definition display augmented by Sony’s own XBRITE-FullHD LCD technology which will reproduce crystal-clear images in a jiffy. You also get a slot-in rewritable Blu-ray Disc optical drive, integrated DVR capabilities, up to 1TB of storage space, an HDMI input, Wi-Fi connectivity and an integrated power supply, allowing you to mount the LV onto a wall in a clean and neat manner.
Last but not least, the Vaio RT High Definition Studio touts itself to be a one-stop-shop handling all your high-definition video-editing needs on a single machine. You will get a 25.5″ LCD display with XBRITE-FullHD LCD technology, a Blu-ray optical drive, integrated digital TV tuners, and an HDMI port.
All these machines are powered by Windows Vista. Image courtesy of Engadget.
