In addition to Gateway and announcement earlier today, Sony has introduced a new all-in-one
touchscreen PC in preparation for Windows 7's launch. The Sony VAIO L
features a 24" 1080p multi-touch display, an Intel Core 2 Quad processor, "loads of RAM," a dedicated Nvidia GeForce series graphics chip, and an optional Blu-ray drive.
Other VAIO L specs include an optional HDMI input (to connect an HD cable box or PlayStation 3 for instance), built-in DVR capabilities, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity, support for VESA wall mounts, and ships with Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional 64-bit. Pricing starts around $1,300 and the VAIO L all-in-one is available for pre-order on Sony's website.
In somewhat related news, Sony offered new details
about its 11" carbon fiber Sony VAIO X
. The company first showed its new ultraportable at the IFA 2009 electronics event in Berlin, but few specs were revealed. Sony says its VAIO X is the world's lightest laptop, and will house an Intel Atom Z530, and will run for up to 14 hours per charge.
It features a 16:9 LED-backlit display, an optional integrated Verizon-backed 3G dongle, 802.11n and Bluetooth connectivity, some form of an SSD, and Windows 7. It too is up for pre-orders and starts at a reasonable $1,300 -- which was precisely my guess last month
, if I may brag.
