Sony Unveils All-In-One PC/TV With Blu-Ray Drive

Fusing PC performance with an LCD, Sony today introduced a new high-definition PC/TV model. Featuring a floating glass design, the VAIO LT HD PC/TV serves as a computer entertainment center, where you can watch and record analog, digital and cable television programming, including premium HD channels. A Cable CARD is required.

Part of a series, the new LT PC/TV comes in multiple configurations, including a standard and an HD model. The high-definition version features a Blu-ray Disc optical drive so you can enjoy high-definition movies, as well as record, store and play back personal content on high-capacity BD media (up to 50 GB on a single disc).

The unit features a 22-inch diagonal WSXGA+ widescreen display, with Sony’s XBRITE-HiColor LCD technology. A unique feature in a PC, the LT model has a mounting capability that allows users to attach a VESA-compatible mount (sold separately) to the unit and hang it on the wall of your bedroom, kitchen, office or attach to your desk.

Since the LT PC/TV can be used for television viewing as well as computing functions, an A/V power button lets you shut down the TV function, while your PC continues to run in the background. This lets you quickly turn the TV off and on without waiting for the PC to shut down or boot up.

The model features a built-in 1.3 megapixel camera and an echo-cancelling microphone for video messaging. A broadband connection is required.

The unit features an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of RAM and a discrete graphics card. It also ships with a roomy hard drive and allows for expandable hard drive capacity, providing plenty of space for HD recording. It also incorporates built-in wireless 802.11n LAN technology. The unit comes pre-installed with Windows Vista Ultimate.

A wire organizing tab on the back of the chassis ensures that wires are discreetly routed, while ample ports are conveniently located on the sides. Wired connections are further minimized with the included fold-up wireless keyboard, mouse and remote control.

The LT standard model will start at about $1,900, while the LT HD model with a Blu-ray Disc optical drive will go for around $2,900. The VAIO LT series will go on sale in October.
