Sony VAIO VGC-RB50 Intel Pentium 4 640 3.2GHz Desktop Computer


This Sony computer is designed for use as a media center computer. With minimalist styling, it manages to fit fairly well into you living room, but not nearly as well as some of the newer Sony offerings that have home entertainment center styling,...

So overall, I don't think that this computer is really worth it. I would put the money into a more up to date version which has more features included. It's not a bad system, and at the time was probably good, but not good enough anymore.
