Convergence is one of those happy buzzwords in the technology industry these days, but which functions actually converge may vary. Not so with the Sony VAIO PCV-V200G. This all-in-one system looks like a sleek 15-inch LCD TV and works fine as one, too....

The Sony VAIO PCV-200G's all-in-one form factor is great for tight spaces. The image quality of TV shows is sharp when seen at normal viewing distances

As in most integrated solutions, 3D performance is mediocre, and the 120GB drive is barely enough to put the PCV-V200G's DVR features to work. Channel and volume controls should be on the front panel

The Sony VAIO PCV-V200G is a good PVR PC and an even better TV/PC. It fits perfectly in a kitchen, bedroom, dorm room, or wherever you like to watch TV, surf the Web, and catch up on e-mail.
