Sony VAIO VGC-RT150Y

 

Look out, Apple—there's a stylish new all-in-one desktop in town to challenge the iMac. The Sony VAIO VGC-RT150Y ($3,999.99 list), a sleek black multimedia PC, looks just like a large widescreen monitor—at least from the front. It's got quad-core...

Quad core in an all-in-one PC. Huge 25.5-inch LCD screen. Wireless networking and connectivity (Wi-Fi, BT, keyboard/mouse). HDMI input and output. Lots of I/O ports. ATSC/HDTV TV tuner. eSATA. Easy access to hard drives. Looks like a monitor. Blu-ray...

Crazy pricey. Runs a little hot under load. Still some crapware (but much less this time). Tray-loading Blu-ray drive. Only 90 days Windows Live OneCare (antivirus, backup, and firewall)

The Sony VAIO VGC-RT150Y is even more expensive and powerful and has a bigger screen than previous all-in-one PCs. It will compete with the iMac for digital-content-creation artists.

One of the best-performing all-in-ones we've seen, Sony's VAIO VGC-RT150Y has it all—including an exorbitant price.

Good performance for an all-in-one, Excellent preinstalled software selection, Blu-ray burner included

Very expensive

All in One, GIANT screen, Sleek, moveable, HIGH QUALITY, Optional 5 year Warranty is AMAZING and a good idea

monitor off button too close to the power button, cord catcher design in the back of the computer is a bad design
