Sony VAIO VGC-RT100Y


$3,300.00 Released September, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Fully 1080p capable. Can write to the newest optical media (many times the size of DVDs). Has the connections the other series should (eSATA, HDMI output etc.. .).

The Cons:Extremely costly. Will be out-of-date in 6 months like any other computer. While decent, the 9600M is not a gamers video card.

Introduced in early September 2008 at CEDIA, the VGC-RT100Y is an all-in-one computer system Sony. Aimed at enthusiasts and those who want the latest technology in a stylish all-in-one enclosure, the RT series includes all that is required for fast computing, content creation, watching high definition media and even gaming - surpassing the LV series in all possible ways.
