Sony VAIO XL2 Digital Living System

 

Like its predecessor, the XL2 comes in two parts. There's the sleek PC unit, which houses the usual PC components such as processor, memory, and hard drives; and then there's the 200-disc DVD/CD changer, also known as the XL1B. The changer is designed...

Dual-core CPU. Viiv-compatible. Wireless keyboard with built-in touchpad. Wireless networking. 200-disc changer/burner. ATSC/HDTV tuner. Built-in IR receiver for MCE remote

Could use a little more hard drive capacity

The new XL2 is an MCE PC that is a great companion to your home theater, particularly if you own an HDTV with an HDMI port.
