Sony Australia’s Channel Marketing Manager for Vaio, Jun Yoon said, “In 2007, Australians spent $2.83 billion on high definition products, purchasing over 1.2 million high definition flat panel TVs, and almost 180,000 HD movies. As HD becomes the home entertainment format of choice, Sony has launched the TP, LT and LJ series PCs to link users and HD devices to bring true AV/IT convergence to the home.”
TP2 Series PC
The Vaio TP2 PC features an Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 processor, 500GB hard disk drive, Blu-ray Disc Combo Drive, and is HD TV ready via the HDMI connection. The TP2 comes with a matching wireless keyboard with touchpad and remote control for easy control, as well as a bundled HD TV tuner to display HD channels.
The Vaio LT Panel PC comes with a 22-inch diagonal WSXGA+ widescreen display, with Sony’s Clear Bright High Colour LCD technology and has a built-in Blu-ray burner. The unit utilises an Intel Core 2 Duo processor T8100, 2GB DDR2 SDRAM, and an Nvidia GeForce 8400M GT graphics card with 256MB of dedicated video memory.
LJ Series Panel PC
Available in three colours, the Vaio LJ series integrates all elements including the CPU, hard Disk Drive and LCD monitor into a single, slim-profile unit.
Wireless LAN compatibility together with a supplied battery and a carrying handle gives you the freedom to take the LJ wherever in your home you please. The built-in stand lets you adjust to the optimum viewing angle with ease.
The slot-in optical drive reads and writes to multiple DVD formats (DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD-RAM, DVD-R Dual Layer, DVD+R Double Layer), giving users ample capacity to store your data or burn DVDs for viewing on a DVD player. The unit can also be used as a mobile audio player as the clear touch buttons on the transparent frame can operate all musical functions without opening the keyboard.
