Sony VAIO VGC-LT19U

 

The slot-mounted BD-RE (Blu-ray rewritable burner) drive on the side of the system looks just like the DVD drive on HDTV/DVD combo units, and works just as well. Pop a Blu-ray disc in the drive and the movie comes up in about 10 seconds. The included...

CableCard tuner. Larger widescreen display. All-in-one chassis. Looks like an HDTV. Blu-ray drive. Vista Ultimate. Available with an internal NTSC/ATSC tuner. Upgradable drive bay

Obscene amount of bloatware. CableCard tuner is external. No pointing device on the keyboard. Mouse has no Back button

In its VAIO VGC-LT19U, Sony has improved the PC that's disguised as an HDTV, and it's a major improvement. This is the one to get if you want a PC built into an HDTV set.

Sony VAIO LT Series Review and Prices

 

Sony is always pushing the envelope with its VAIO desktop computers and the new LT series is another reimagining of what the personal computer can be. This line consists of all-in-one desktop computers that look like flat-panel LCD TVs that you'd hang...

Beautiful display, Blu-ray writer an option

Expensive

Stylish VAIO

 

Perfect solution for someone who wants to lose the wires and keep their office in style while gaining the benefits of a huge screen. Looks like something out of Minority Report.

Extremely stylish, even beautiful all-in-one solution for those who want a low wires, low maintenance answer for their everyday computing needs. Lots of features for a price not found in the big box stores (if bought from Newegg). The screen is large...

No standard PC video out (not a huge con), lots of crapware pre-installed (annoying to have to uninstall it all but not too hard to get done)

I strongly recommend the product.

This is the greatest idea since sliced bread. It does everything and does everything well. It is a great addition to our home as we put it in the kitchen and provides easy access for email, internet searches for studying, television, video recording of...

A little more expensive than I would have preferred but with all new ideas, you probably pay more to have the latest and greatest.

VAIO LT18E DT 22-WSXGA+ XBHC T7500 2.2G 2GB 320GB DVDRW WVHP

 

Great system and fast!

Excellent system with such an easy setup. No towers or other equipment to worry about. I had an existing printer and it was just a matter of plugging in via USB and the VAIO recognized and installed. Same for our existing DSL!

No negatives other than a first time computer owner may be a little intimidated with no detailed manual on initial startup.

The biggest drawback to this computer is the "bloat" ociated with Windows Vista that significantly slows the machine down. I hate it and wish Sony would give consumers a choice of Windows XP or Linux. The next biggest headache is the crapware loaded on...

Great design, big screen, fantastic screen resolution

Windows Vista Filled with "crapware" software offers

I was considering buying an apple but found this machine without a tower and really needed to save space so it was just the ticket. Sony really hit a home run with this machine because it does so much. It''s a bit more than I would have liked to have...

Absolutely love the big monitor and ability to both watch and record television. Fast and easy to use. Beautiful machine and am crazy about not having to deal with a tower or a bunch of wires.

Had to have my nine year old help me figure out a few things, but not really the fault of the computer, just my lack of computer expertise.
