Sony Vaio L117FX Video
Instead of succumbing to the latest fads, Sony's Vaio's JS250J all-in-one PC stays the course pioneered by its models from last year, delivering capable performance and best-of-breed home entertainment features at a better price than its all-in-one competition.
We like the idea of a Blu-ray-equipped all-in-one with a small footprint for home entertainment, but Sony badly missed the mark with the Vaio J114FX. In trying to make this system focused, Sony cut too many features. The result is that this PC is a terrible value relative to other all-in-ones in its price range.
The drastically overpriced 3D version of Sony's Vaio L-Series all-in-one is impossible to recommend due to more affordable competition that costs almost half as much for essentially the same features.
You can find more-cost-effective large-screen all-in-ones for general productivity, but Sony's Vaio LV250B is our favorite for home entertainment. Loaded with unique features geared toward digital media convenience, this system will meet the needs of anyone looking for a PC to use as an entertainment hub.
By virtue of its price, its desktop processor, and its Blu-ray drive, the Sony Vaio JS190J makes a case for itself as the new king of the all-in-ones. Its screen might be a bit smaller than some, but no other all-in-one, including Apple's iMac, can do as much, as fast, for the same price.
While there are certainly things to like about the Sony Vaio Duo 11, the design gets in the way of enjoying it.
From the design and features list of the 15.5-inch Vaio SE, it's clear Sony is targeting this as a high-end, powerful laptop with potential appeal to business users.
Just in time for the launch of Windows 7, Sony throws a party for the new additions to its Vaio lineup, from touch-screen all-in-ones to pencil-thin luxury laptops.
The pocket-size Sony VAIO UX390 makes solid improvements over the first generation of UMPCs, but its target audience is unclear.
With a sleek design, HD-friendly display, and a Blu-ray drive, the 16-inch Sony Vaio FW270 is a near-ideal portable entertainment center.
