Is it a TV? Or a PC? Is it both? The world may never know! Sony
's new VAIO
L is one of the wildest all-in-one computers, and it honestly looks
a lot like a 3DTV. Speaking of 3D, it definitely supports 3D, but would
you expect anything else from such a pioneering voice in the 3D
universe? The machine has a 24" LED-backlit multi-touch display, with
touch access to the Internet, TV (optional), Blu-ray (optional), and
yes, a regular Windows PC.
There's an HDMI socket, USB port, and Sony tosses in a pair of
rechargeable action 3D glasses as well. It'll ship with a Core i7
processor, Windows 7 Professional, a discrete NVIDIA graphics card (with
1GB of VRAM), an AIO design, wireless keyboard / mouse, USB 3.0
connectivity, HD webcam, and plenty of multimedia support. It'll ship in July for upwards of $1400, but boy, we'd pay the premium!
