So Sony is working their way into the media center market, but in Sony fashion they are too good of a company to just have a plain old "media center" so they are labeling their new device as a "digital living system." Good news for Sony is that this computer is, in fact, not a media center at all. It is way worse and way more expensive. This machine features a Pentium D processor, only 512 MB of memory, a lowly 200 GB hard drive, no RAID, 802.11g WiFi, a GeForce 6200, and a dual-layer DVD burner. For the mediocre specs this machine it has a hefty price tag of $2,300. Don't worry, this machine didn t bring out the full negative Nancy in me. This machine does include a nifty keyboard/touchpad combo, has an integrated DVD changer and doesn t look very PC-esque. So it could nicely blend into any ritzy home theatre setup.
