Threading with the ever increasing move toward combination machines, Sony unleashed its newest amalgamation, the VAIO LS1 TV/PC. The rig presents itself iMac style with the chassis built into the back of the 19″ WSXGA+ display.
It is powered by an Intel Core Duo processor, 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive and integrated 802.11 b/g. The included wireless mouse and keyboard apparently fold into the system for a clean appearance when not in use.
The unit ships with Windows Media Center 2005 and an NTSC TV tuner, so the system can be used as a DVR. Users can then back up their recordings with its included DVD burner. The LS1 will be available in mid-September for about $2100.
