Sony VAIO TP1E

 

Sony can safely claim to be one of the leading manufacturers when it comes to the art of the media centre PC. Its name is synonymous with style, and the sleek, neatly integrated machines that pass through Computer Buyer's labs from time to time are a...

PC or pie? Make your mind up, Sony. Reasonably capable and fairly priced, but the wow factor is skin deep.

Sony VAIO TP1 Living Room PC Core 2 Duo T5600 1.83GHz, 2GB RAM, 300GB HDD, Vista Home Premium

 

As Sony's products are often described, the $1,600 VAIO TP1 Living Room PC is a unique, attractive system that is underpowered and overpriced. It suffers from some unfortunate technical quirks and is more laden with shovelware than any PC we've...

Unique design; nice selection of home theater PC features.

Overpriced compared to other PCs of similar power and capabilities; overloaded with shovelware.

Sony's distinctive, midrange VAIO TP1 Living Room PC trades performance and features for its cutesy appearance. Unless you really like the looks of this Roomba-like PC you can find a much better deal from a variety of standard desktop PCs.

Sony Vaio VGX-TP1

 

The Sony VAIO VGX-TP1 is certainly eye-catching: This white-gray circle looks more like a stand to place something on than a PC. But a PC it is, and it's meant to fit unobtrusively into your living room, your bedroom, or any other room where you want...

Whisper-quiet operation ; Eye-catching, circular design

Port covers could be more effective

Sony VAIO TP1 Living Room PC – underpowered and overpriced

 

$1600 priced Sony VAIO TP1 Living Room PC is an attractive round-shape desktop that is overpriced and underpowered. Sony calls it a Home Theater PC and designed it for average performance only. The TP1 suffers from few technical quirks and overloaded...

Nice selection of home theater computer features; unique round design

Overloaded with shovelware; overpriced as compared to its competitors

: The Sony VAIO TP1 Living Room PC is overpriced for its common mid-range features and cutesy appearance. We will not recommend this computer to purchase because you can get similar features in less $1000. If you are a big fan of its Roomba like shape...

Sony VAIO VGX-TP1 Review and Ratings

 

Sony's stylish VGX-TP1 raises the bar for low-cost entertainment PCs—but it isn't built to handle much besides media-manipulation chores.

Unobtrusive design ; Lots of extra features for its price

Can't handle much beyond Media Center tasks ; Quirky Wi-Fi-antenna setup
