Sony Desktop PC VAIO L Series VPCL114FX/B Core 2 Duo E7500 (2.93 GHz) 4 GB DDR2 500 GB HDD 24
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Looks, performance, and the TV tuner. Humongous screen, yet unit takes up less space than my old tower.

Cons: Mouse feels cheap. System slows considerably when writing a disc. Remote is not intuitive. Unit is not built for easy re-positioning.

Other Thoughts: This machine is fast and beautiful. I can watch TV and surf or work simultaneously. Can transcode HD video in faster than real time. I'm sure a considerable chunk of the cost was for the touch screen, but I never touch mine.

Pros: Cute & tiny form factor; no OS, allowing you to install only what you need; plenty of USB slots; non-slip pad is a thoughtful addition.

Cons: I may upgrade to blu ray drive & wifi.

Other Thoughts: Tried XP & Ubuntu before settling on Windows 7 since the cheapo Kworld TV tuner does not have linux drivers. HD video files look great and run with no problems. Non-HD video files and even HDTV & regular DVDs tend to be slightly dark and pixelated, even with latest drivers. Still working on this issue.
