Sony VGC-JS1E All-In-One PC


Is Sony's cheapest all-in-one PC a worthy contender for your cash?

Apple's iMacs are excellent all-in-one computers, and since they can now run Windows, they're an option for PC buyers too. They're pricey, though, especially without Windows included, and that leaves a gap in the market for PC makers who are prepared...

Sony VAIO JS1E/S review


Sony's Vaio VGC-JS1E/S has a similar all-in-one design to the Eee Top, but its price and appearance make it clear that this system is designed to compete with Apple's stylish iMac.

Sony Vaio VGC-JS1E


Looks good Like the 'all in one concept' neat & tidy. Nice big screen. Fast Internet connexion. Not used the web cam yet. Key board very light touch, great. Far fewer cables.

Struggling to register trial version of Office. Shall seek advise soon.

Sony Vaio VGC-JS1E


Stylish a bit like an apple imac but without the price tag and the software compatabiliy problems

Windows vista very pretty and a couple of useful new features but generally not as stable as windows xp and a little awkward to use. Can't get my teenage daughter off it when i want to use it
