Expert review by (



The Sony VAIO VGC-LV190Y ($2,799.99 list) is the best fusion of HDTV and PC I've seen yet, despite a couple of software nits. It combines the large screen and high resolution of an HDTV with the computing power of a dual-core multimedia PC. It's got...

Large widescreen. Fully loaded. Looks like an HDTV. Wireless keyboard with touchpad. Nice mouse. Wireless everything. Blu-ray burner. HDMI input. Full 1080p support

Windows Live OneCare (antivirus/firewall) has only a 90-day subscription. Still some crapware

The ultimate Sony all-in-one PC for the home, the VAIO VGC-LV190Y adds HDMI input to the company's previous model.
