Photos: Sony VAIO TP1 stripped

Deconstructing the round PC.

Crave Asia

We rarely see circular designs in desktops. After all, when 99 percent of components are made for the conventional box shape, getting parts to fit a round chassis takes more investigative work than a season of CSI.

Sony's VAIO TP1 is unique in many ways. Besides being round, it is also based on a notebook platform like the iMac. Sony's product manager Katsuki Fuchu was responsible for the VAIO TP1's unique shape and met with CNET Asia to explain the inner workings of this desktop entertainment system. We took the opportunity to ask for one to be taken apart. Check out our photo gallery to see the VAIO TP1 stripped down and its bits exposed.
