Amazing Computer Beautiful Graphics and Great Soun
The wireless keyboard and mouse are amazingly responsive .... even from across the room. You can instantly zoom the screen from your keyboard so you can easily read text from across the room. Doubles as a HDTV and Blueray player ... amazing office workhorse and office playhorse all in one ... you can even hook up your PS3 to this BadBoy! Blows the competitors away ... I am a scientist and Research is in my blood .... i did the research, nothing compares for both business function and the ability to use it for play ... i just wish it came pre built with the intel i7 ... the quad core is awesome still..... Sony Rocks!!!

Has all the extras but SONY skipped on the basics
This computer is awesome!!! BUT key word here, the computer has fantastic features and all the bells and whistles with an hdmi hook up the ethernet and built in wifi capabilities, to the full 1080 display, graphics card, 2 terabytes of storage, and quad core processor, these things are all great but the basics that put this computer with its expensive price tag through the floor is the fact that the processor is not of the industry leading intel i5 or i7 classes almost all highend computers $899 and up are coming with that include turbo boost which increases processor clock speed as needed up to almost 1.0 ghz faster, this graphics card only offers 1 gb of ram at 330 mhz other systems offer 2 gb at 725 mhz, this system offers only 8 gb ddr2 800 mhz computer memory expandable only up to 12 gb other systems offer expansion up to 24 gb and comparibly priced systems offer 12 gb of ddr3 1333 mhz ram standard, this computer only comes with windows 7 home premium other computers have the option to be upgraded to windows 7 ultra, this computer has a huge 2 terabyte harddrive but only has a reading and writing capability of 5400 rpms while 7200 rpms is the industry standard now because with a slower harddrive the slower your computer will process applications other hard drives function at 10,000 rpms and higher. SOOOOO this is a good computer i was not happy with it, i decided to return it and get a dell and the dell exceeds my needs in every level of performance and speed for the same price, it might not have a touch screen display and a display with the processor in it but if i wanted an all in one id buy a laptop when i want a desktop computer i want raw power and functionality and performance!!!! I DO NOT WANT TO PAY FOR PRETTY TOUCH SCREENS, LIGHTER ALL IN ONE MONITORS, & WIRELESS input devices. and not get the basics of what i want and expect in a 2010 computer from SONY. So come on sony, bring back the good old regular desktop series and give us people in demand of performance a power hungry non energy star compliant processing beast of a tower again, not these aesthetics and accessories without the raw functionality you expect at a highend computer.
