An All-In-One Desktop with Entertainment Center Dreams
Sony’s latest entry into the field of all-in-one desktops takes another big step towards erasing the line between the TV and computer, and we couldn’t be happier. Its computing-based feature set includes a 3.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4GB of ram, 256MB Nvidia Geforce video card, and Blu-ray burner, the confluence of which is nothing to scoff at. However, it’s the built in HDMI input, TV Tuner, and included remote that really set it apart.
Yes, we could gripe that the LV180J’s wimpy 500 gig hard drive pales in comparison to those found in similarly priced desktops, but at least Sony had the courtesy to make upgrading it a cinch– something that can’t be said about its all-in-one competitors such as the HP TouchSmart or the Apple iMac. Plus, with a price of under $2,000, it just might be the perfect solution for those in need of a new PC and a secondary entertainment center outside of the living room.
