Sony VAIO L


$1,300.00 Released October, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Large 24" 1080p capable multitouch touchscreen display. HDMI input for use as a TV with external devices. Blu-ray drive on all models.

The Cons:Somewhat boxy looking - not as sleek as the iMac. Touchscreen interface on the standard desktop monitor configuration is strenuous on the arms. All-in-one design makes self-service, upgrading or reusing major components impossible.

The Sony VAIO L is an all-in-one, touch-enabled HD PC/TV released in October 2009 alongside Microsoft Windows 7. It features a large 24” WUXGA widescreen panel that not only displays high-definition content at 1080p (1920x1080), but can in fact be swiped with a finger for easily swooping through images and websites.
