Sony Vaio L all-in-one: The L stands for lovely

It's be-Sony's-bitch morning. We just got word of its new Vaio L series all-in-one Windows 7 desktop and we have to concede, it's too lush not to write about.

The L series -- known as the VPC-L11M1E/S and the higher-spec VPC-L11S1E/S -- has a 24-inch 1080p touchscreen. The top model packs an Intel Core 2 Duo processor running at up to 3GHz, 4GB of RAM, an Nvidia GeForce G210M graphics processor, an optional Blu-ray drive, speedy 802.11n Wi-Fi and HDMI input (to use the screen as a normal TV), but a relatively small 500GB hard drive.

In many ways it's similar to the MSI Windtop AE2400 -- another 24-inch 1080p touchscreen all-in-one. The difference is, the MSI has a quad-core Intel chip, better Nvidia graphics, and only costs £1,000.

We expect the Sony will cost as much as having someone killed, and Sony won't tell us otherwise. We'll know for sure when it launches on 22 October -- the same day as Windows 7. For some reason the Yanks get better specs: specifically, they can have a 1TB hard disk, 6GB of RAM and a beefier graphics chip.

Instead, we get Christmas postal strikes. Sucks to be us.
