Sony Vaio PCV-W10

PCMag has taken a short look at Sony's latest all in one solution. The complete PC is powered by an 1.6Ghz Intel Celeron processor, 512Mbyte DDR 2100 RAM, SiS650 integrated graphics chipset, 60Gbyte ATA100 HDD, CD-RW/DVD drives and 15.3'' WXGA wide aspect ration LCD. Really looks awesome and somehow reminds me of Bang&Olufsen. However this is an office/internet machine but I neeeed one for my living room now!
The VAIO W Series is arguably the nicest all-in-one system we've ever seen?even when compared with Apple iMacs. It has a 15.3-inch LCD with the wide aspect ratio (16:9) of 35-mm film and a PC riding piggyback. The monitor can tilt, and the attached rear-hinge keyboard can flip up to cover most of the display (the top two inches remain uncovered). The speakers that flank the LCD stick out farther than the computer module and emphasize the extreme width of the display. The case measures 11 by 19 by 13 inches (HWD) when the keyboard is folded up, so the system?all done up in attractive hues of gray, silver, and chrome?would fit easily on a kitchen countertop. When the keyboard is flipped up, the top portion of the screen displays a clock, a calendar, and if you're playing a CD, audio information. Warp 2 the review
