Sony VAIO VGC-LS25E

 

The LS25E looks just like the LS1. It has the same 19-inch widescreen monitor with XBrite technology, which makes it look just like one of Sony's Bravia TVs. You know, the ones that "both men and women can love?" I'm convinced that this is one of the...

Compact all-in-one form factor. Looks like a widescreen TV. Attractive clear polycarbonate frame. Integrated webcam. Wireless keyboard and mouse. Now with HDTV/ATSC tuner

No HDMI or component-video input. External IR receiver and HDTV tuner are deal breakers. Short (60-day) Internet security subscription. No HD optical drive

The Sony VAIO VGC-LS25E addresses one of the shortcomings of the previous LS1 model, yet still has deal-breaker missteps. A couple of necessary dongles threatens its "all-in-oneness."
