Sony VAIO VGC-RC110G

Excellent LCD; PC has room for upgrades

Included speakers were unimpressive

Best LCD for watching TV, and there is room for expansion. But the pair of Sony speakers were unimpressive.

Sony VAIO VGC-RC110G reviewed

 

PC Mag has a review of Sony's new sleekly-styled desktop, the VAIO VGC-RC110G. Inside the box is an Intel 8 Series (Pentium D) processor, 1GB RAM, 250GB hard drive, ATI Radeon X300 graphics card, Dual-Layer DVD+/-RW drive, and a secondary DVD-ROM...

Sony VAIO VGC-RC110G

 

Sony has added a new series to its lineup of VAIO desktop PCs. Following up on the successful RA and RB series, the RC series takes technology and style cues from each. The VAIO VGC-RC110G ($2,199 direct, $1,299 without monitor), is a high-end Media...

Hard drive bays prewired for expansion. Dual-core processor with Media Center OS. Quiet. Front and rear video inputs. Click to DVD integrated into MCE

Inconvenient to upgrade memory. Lackluster 3D graphics. Single tuner only

The Sony VAIO VGC-RC110G will satisfy digital editors and video pack rats alike.

SONY: PERFORMANCE THAT'S PATHETIC; SERVICE THAT SUCKS!

 

I was a network engineer for 20 years and have never seen a PC with so many problems. I'm using my 10 year old Dell computer today because SONY technical support does not like this machine and whenever I call them, the only solution they have is to...

It's quiet. It has an appealing look and fits nicely in any room with most contemporary furniture. The surface of the outside is easy to clean

From Day 1 in Dec 2005... a nightmare. Overheats; very slow. Many system errors. Motherboard overheats. No Floppy Drive. Comes with no CDs. If you lose the hard disk, it's very difficult to repair. You CANNOT upgrade to Windows 7
