>> Hi, I'm Rick Brown, senior editor for cnet.com.
Today we're going to take a look at the Sony Vaio LD19U.
It certainly has a lot of the things you expect from an
all-in-one PC. From a built-in web cam, wireless
networking, nice big 22-inch wide screen TV, as well as
built in speakers. It's a pretty self contained system.
Sony also made a great effort to make the system for
expandable than a typical all-in-one, and it also added
a Blu-Ray player making it a really high-end device.
Now another one of the defining features of this system
are its looks. You can see that it rivals the iMac in
terms of nice, clean design. Sony really wants you to
have a clean desktop when you're using this system. You
could even take that a step further. The support on the
back of the system comes right off and you can mount it
on any basic compatibility hardware. So as we said,
Sony actually made the system pretty expandable, at
least for an all-in-one. You take off this back panel,
so here you can see the wall mount screws that we're
talking about. Take this port right off. It's very
easy. Here you have some cable wrangling going on. And
over there, there's some external ports. Right here you
get access to the memory and if we take off this panel
right here we can get to the hard drive sled. Here Sony
includes an extra tray that you can pull out and install
an additional hard drive. Very few other all-in-ones
that we know of give you that amount of flexibility.
And finally with this package Sony also includes an ATI
TV Wonder [Phonetic] digital capable tuner. It takes
both cable card and standard analog coaxial cable inputs
so if you're not comfortable going with the cable card
standard you don't have to worry. You can still get a
TV signal on this system. So with all those parts and
the fact that this system is pretty self contained, Sony
imagines that you'll use this system as a secondary
entertainment device, possibly in a bedroom or another
room in your house. We should warn you that this isn't
the fastest desktop around. The iMac did a lot better
on our performance tests. Still, as a self contained
entertainment system, we recommend it. So I'm Rich
Brown and this is the Sony Vaio LT19U. ^M00:01:50
