This sleek all-in-one multimedia system is an attractive alternative to desktop replacement notebooks.

Expert review by:



The slot-mounted BD-RE (Blu-ray rewritable burner) drive on the side of the system looks just like the DVD drive on HDTV/DVD combo units, and works just as well. Pop a Blu-ray disc in the drive and the movie comes up in about 10 seconds. The included...

CableCard tuner. Larger widescreen display. All-in-one chassis. Looks like an HDTV. Blu-ray drive. Vista Ultimate. Available with an internal NTSC/ATSC tuner. Upgradable drive bay

Obscene amount of bloatware. CableCard tuner is external. No pointing device on the keyboard. Mouse has no Back button

In its VAIO VGC-LT19U, Sony has improved the PC that's disguised as an HDTV, and it's a major improvement. This is the one to get if you want a PC built into an HDTV set.

Stylish VAIO


Perfect solution for someone who wants to lose the wires and keep their office in style while gaining the benefits of a huge screen. Looks like something out of Minority Report.

Extremely stylish, even beautiful all-in-one solution for those who want a low wires, low maintenance answer for their everyday computing needs. Lots of features for a price not found in the big box stores (if bought from Newegg). The screen is large...

No standard PC video out (not a huge con), lots of crapware pre-installed (annoying to have to uninstall it all but not too hard to get done)

Bought my unit as display model for $1750 from Best Buy (early February 2008). Here's my impressions so far. Design: Best looking all-in one on the market :) (review updated as of 04-29-08) Display: Good at 22" but LCD has inherent problems of ...

Stylish, good screen size, quiet operation.Pretty good RAM (expandable) & good disc memory size.

Sony really needs to work on keyboard, sound, & get rid of junk software.
