Sony VAIO LS1 TV/PC Combo Announced

262024.jpg

Combining the power of a PC with a quality LCD and stylish design, Sony today unveiled the new VAIO LS1 TV/PC Combo.

Sleek, yet highly-functional, this new device compliments any room in the house where space is at a premium, but entertainment, performance and style is a must.

Featuring a framed display with a transparent border for a stunning, floating effect, the LS1 model packs the essentials for powerful computing into a slim chassis discreetly hidden behind the back of a flat-panel 19-inch WSXGA+ (1680 x 1050) LCD display.

The new VAIO LS1 TV/PC model incorporates an Intel Core™ Duo processor, 2GB of RAM and a roomy 250 GB (1GB = 1billion bytes) hard drive for running multiple, demanding applications simultaneously, such as watching and/or recording a TV show while downloading music in the background. The unit is a Windows Vista™ capable PC. It is also Windows Vista Premium ready.

“The LS1 model is a testament to our design and engineering prowess incorporating all the power of a desktop into a showpiece design,” remarked Mike Abary, vice president of VAIO product marketing at Sony Electronics in the U.S.

For tidy interior design, the LS1 TV/PC incorporates personal computing into the living space without any unsightly wires. Network cables are discretely routed; ports are conveniently located on the sides; and wired connections are minimized. An included wireless mouse and wireless aluminum keyboard folds up for a beautiful presentation when not in use.

By utilizing the unit’s built-in wireless LAN (802.11 b/g) technology, the VAIO LS1 TV/PC can be positioned virtually anywhere in the home and still access Internet sites, e-mail, and a home network.

It’s a TV/ PC Home Entertainment System

Sporting a 19-inch widescreen display powered by Sony’s XBRITE-HiColor™ technology , the unit doubles as a flat-panel TV delivering dazzling colors and sharp images whether displaying a movie, television show or web content.

The LS1 model ships with Microsoft Windows XP MCE 2005 and a built-in NTSC TV tuner providing DVR-like recording capabilities. It also has a built-in DVD burner and Sony’s Click to DVD software so you can create a digital entertainment library for personal viewing at your convenience.

The new VAIO TV/PC also features an audio/video quick resume switch that shuts down the display and the audio output without the PC having to enter sleep mode. This allows you to return to full PC functionality without waiting for the computer to shut down or boot up.
