Combining the power of a PC with a quality LCD, Sony Electronics Inc. unveiled the new VAIO LS1 TV/PC combo. Featuring a framed display with a transparent border, said Sony, the LS1 model packs the essentials for powerful computing into a slim chassis discreetly hidden behind the back of a flat-panel 19-inch WSXGA+ (1680 x 1050) LCD display.

The new TV/PC combo incorporates an Intel Core Duo processor, 2Gbytes of RAM and a 250Gbyte hard drive. It is Windows Vista capable, and Windows Vista Premium ready.

By utilising the unit's built-in wireless LAN (802.11 b/g) technology, explained Sony, the VAIO LS1 TV/PC can be positioned virtually anywhere in the home and still access Internet sites, e-mail and a home network.

The LS1 model ships with Microsoft Windows XP MCE 2005 and a built-in NTSC TV tuner providing DVR-like recording capabilities. This product also features a built-in DVD burner and an audio/video quick resume switch that shuts down the display and the audio output without the PC having to enter sleep mode. The LS1 TV/PC Combo also includes an integrated camera and microphone for recording and transmitting video messages.

The VAIO LS1 TV/PC Combo will be available in mid-September for about Rs.97,524($2,100).
