Sony VAIO VGC-RC310G

 

The RC310G sits in a case similar to those of the RC series systems before it: a dark tower with slick chrome accents. I particularly like how the backlit "VAIO" logo shines through the case while the system is powered up and virtually disappears when...

Speedy dual-core processor. Decent 3D performance. Wireless keyboard and mouse. Blu-ray optical drive

Blu-ray media is expensive. Also, burning discs takes a long time, and there are few Blu-ray players out there to view your videos

The Sony VAIO VGC-RC310G, the first Blu-ray-equipped PC to land in our labs, is a forward-looking system for the home video enthusiast, but it has some quirks.
