PC Mag: Sony VAIO VGC-JS130J/P Review

PC Mag writes, "The all-in-one PC desktop space seems to be evolving as rapidly as the netbook category is doing in notebooks. The Sony VAIO VGC-JS130J/P ($1,099.99 list) is a prime example of that progression. I think it's better equipped for the real world than the bare-bones iMac, and it costs $99 less. It will work as a primary PC for your home, or as the second or third in a multi-PC household.

The JS130J/P (like its JS190J/B sibling) has a cutting-edge design that suggests a computer on a starship of a science-fiction film. The unit I tested is pastel pink, but the system is available in silver and black as well. Sony incorporates function into its design: The arch below the screen is ideal for stowing the keyboard, so you don't have to search for a spot as you do with the Gateway One. The screen is bright and clear, suitable for both browsing photos and watching online and DVD videos. The keyboard, likethose found on Sony VAIO laptops, Apple MacBooks, and the iMac, is comfortable to use, with the keys separated from each other by a few millimeters. The mouse feels cheaper than the keyboard and lacks a back button, but it does the job and looks nice. Both mouse and keyboard are wired, somewhat spoiling the clean lines of the desktop. A wireless mouse and keyboard would be a welcome upgrade."
