Sony’s Answer to the new iMac

We love it when people say “product-killer!”


Our friends at Akihabara News are reporting that Sony has unleased their new “iMac Killer” computer the VAIO LT-19U. Some interesting sounding specs as well, the key one being a built-in Blu-Ray disc burner:

* 22-inch widescreen LCD (1,680×1,050)
* 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 CPU
* 500GB 7,200 rpm hard drive
* 256MB Nvidia GeForce 8400 GT graphics chip
* Windows Vista Ultimate
* 802.11n wireless networking
* Built-in ATSC and NTSC TV tuner
* Built-in 1.3 megapixel Web cam
* 3 watt stereo speakers, and built in 5 watt subwoofer
* various USB, Ethernet, removable media, and audio

We just recently indulged in the new iMac (this post is being typed on the brand new keyboard) and we have to say, like some commenter’s at Akihabara News, its not so much the casing that makes the Apple product so good, its actually their operating system and in this case the futuristic/Minority Report-ish feeling OS X. It is just amazing and we challenge casual PC users to go to an Apple shop in Hong Kong (3 shops on the 11th floor of Windsor House in Causeway Bay) and test it out. It is a multimedia maniacs dream come true. And we’ll be putting these new found capabilities to the test on in the near future!
