Sony unleashed the new VAIO LS1 TV/PC Combo Tuesday, which promises to deliver all the benefits of a home computer and LCD TV. The guts of the computer lie in the back of the device’s 19-inch WSXGA+ (1680 x 1050) LCD display. The Windows Vista capable PC ships with Windows XP MCE 2005 and includes an Intel Core Duo processor, 2GB of RAM and a 250GB hard drive, onto which users can record television shows using the device’s bult-in NTSC TV tuner. They can also choose to burn these shows onto DVD using the computer’s built-in DVD burner and Sony’s Click to DVD software.
For aesthetic appeal, the keyboard and mouse are wireless and can be folded away when not in use, while cables are routed or kept to a minimum. The PC/TV has wireless capability built-in and can be placed anywhere in the house. The device also includes a built-in microphone and camera for recording video messages.
The VAIO LS1 TV/PC Combo will be available in mid-September at authorized Sony dealers, Sony Style stores and on sonystyle.com for approximately $2,100.
