    Blu-Ray drive and an 8400GT with 1GB VRAM. Not bad on the specs front. Shame it won't run OSX really.

    you pay alot more... better graphics and blu ray, but slower cpu and smaller screen (and less pixels... says it's for HD but doesn't even have proper full 1080p resulotion!)

    I think it looks pretty naff. Behind the thing will no doubt be pretty awful, as all the Sony all-in-ones have been, but I guess I could be wrong as I haven't seen it.

    Notebooks like the Vaio TZ are where Sony is at its best. This thing doesn't do anything for me.

    Compared to an iMac, it is well overpriced. And it doesn't run MacOS X :D

    And have you looked at the stand? This screen will be about 1.5 inch above the table top, much too low. I can't see how you could change the vertical angle. And if you want to put it higher, you have a major problem, because you need to lift the stand and the edge of the screen simultaneously, and it will look very, very ugly.

    .... all they can do is copy, emulate and hope for the elegant design that Apple has given us for years. :apple:

    Now matter how good the hardware could be, it's rubbish because of Windows.

    Run Linux and have no commercial consumer applications.

    Why do you think I still bother about Apple and their limited hardware options?

    It looks like a sad attempt of Sony's to take one of their TVs and try to turn it into a computer...
