Sony Adds Blu-ray to All-in-One PC

Sony Electronics on Monday debuted the Vaio LT HD PC/TV, its first all-in-one PC with support for its Blu-ray Disc technology.

The new PC will be available starting in October, either from etailers, Sony's web site, or select military PBXs. Two models will be offered, the LT standard model will start at about $1,900, while the LT HD model with a BD-R optical drive will be priced at around $2,900.

Both models are centered around the 22-inch diagonal WSXGA+ widescreen display, with Sony's XBRITE-HiColor LCD technology. The LT model has a mounting capability that allows users to attach a VESA-compatible mount (sold separately) to the unit and hang it on the wall of a bedroom, kitchen, office or desk. Because of this, the PC also includes built-in 802.11n networking, freeing a wall-mounted unit from the need for Ethernet cables.

The story is too old to be commented.

ur garbage x360 is being beaten by ps3 by atleast 100 000 units worldwide every month

x360 and HD DVD are already dead

Why don't you provide a link to that little 10:1 statement. You PS3 fanboys can talk all day but never back-up your stupid words. Now that you lost Paramount its only gonna get better for HD-DVD....and its FAR from dead. You say this crap to make yourself feel better about owning a PS3. You got no games so you "fight" for movies. Go ahead and disagree with this post. I know thats all you PS3 guys can do....avoid fact and disagree with logic.

Also, what do you think is gonna happen in 2008 when Toshiba ships ALL of their laptops with HD-DVD drives? In 2006 they sold 8 million laptops....Hmmmmm

You will be crying from xmas and even harder next year. Stock up on tissues.

CodeMonkey73530d ago (Edited 3530d ago )

You are case and point on how PS3 fans are f*cking morons. You are comparing PS3 sales to Xbox 360 sales.....you are f*cking stupid.

Thanks again for spitting out more crap. "They will be selling 20 mil in 2008." Okay Ms Cleo.... Didn't I just mention something about PS3 fanboys not stating facts?...Yup, I did. You read my response and decided to counter it by comparing CONSOLE sales...and then you state that its going to sell 20 million...because YOU THINK IT WILL. f*cking morons actually make me laugh.

Don't get sucked in by the pretty package. You can always make a more powerful and affordable PC yourself.

I sell systems I build to people like that, lol

that is so ture and you will pick your own parts so you know it yours

Nobody buys a PC to watch movies, especially high definition movies. This is only going to raise the price, which is bad - this thing is very expensive.

On another note, so you guys don't think I'm hating on Sony, Toshiba made a dumb move putting HD DVD drives in its laptops. I guarantee the attach rates will be pathetic for both PCs.

The attach rates are highest for home theatre/television sets - not laptops. Instead of doing this kind of business, Sony and/or toshiba should spend more money and time advertising their format on mainstream television to make the public aware.

Actually putting HD drives in laptop makes more sense then putting them in PCs, as people can connect the notebooks to their tvs or projectors if their PCs are not in their living rooms. But they better add component/hdmi output from the laptops.

dragonZ283530d ago

Just because it makes more sense to put it in a laptop than a PC doesn't mean it makes sense in a general sense.

That would be like saying crapping on the bathroom floor makes more sense than crapping on the living room floor because it is close to the toilet. The reality is, both don't make any sense, and they're pretty gross too, lol.
