Sony VAIO VGC-RT150Y

 

The Sony VAIO VGC-RT150Y is the closest you can get to a PC that looks like a TV (at least from the front).

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).

Splurging on Sony's Best Never Felt so good

 

"When you buy a computer that is an HD tv, computer, blu-ray, you may get home and say, "what have I done?" It almost seems like too much for being mostly just a computer for me. It is Deluxoid and I got used to that pretty quickly. One of my favorite...

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
