    I have a freind who is interested in purchasing one of those Sony ViAO desktop PC's. It is a pentium 4 2.66 GHZ, with 512 MB or RAM, and a 120 GB HD, it has a giga pocket for recording of your tv, and has Microsoft Office XP. Anyway what do some of you think about this computer. I personally haven't had much experience with the VIAO line. Any suggestions.

    i would see if sony has any centrino laptops out, those are getting great reviews. talk about great battery life, if i was getting a pc laptop i would get the centrino.


    edit: oh my bad, your looking at a desktop, sorry.

    If it's not mac related it's in the wrong forum.

    The Vaio minitowers are cute, but other posters have suggested that they are somewhat unreliable and very difficult to work on.

    A friend of mine got a Viao about 3 months, he decided that it was far superior to an eMac.

    Now he is trying to sell it to buy an eMac, but the resell value of a peecee is not so good. If he sells it, he is going to loose at least $500.00. If he had baught an eMac and decieded that he didnt like, he would have lost $100.00 tops.

    We learn from our mistakes I guess.:rolleyes:

    I accidentally my whole location.
    Those VAIO's are nothing but pretty computers, my parents bought one awhile back and while it had good hardware specs, the software was horrible, especially the video editing/management software and the music software is nothing to scream about either, they may look pretty on the outside, but don't get it for the software bundle.
