Sony today introduced a striking new high-definition PC/TV model.

Blu-Ray Disc Technology PC TV

Featuring a floating glass design, the VAIO LT HD PC/TV serves as a computer entertainment center, where you can watch and record analog, digital and cable television programming, including premium HD channels. It features an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of RAM, discrete graphics card, built-in wireless 802.11n, a built-in 1.3 megapixel camera and an echo-cancelling microphone.

The unit comes pre-installed with Genuine Windows Vista Ultimate.

The LT standard model will start at about $1,900, while the LT HD model with a Blu-ray Disc optical drive will go for around $2,900.

Part of a series, the new LT PC/TV comes in multiple configurations, including a standard and an HD model. The high-definition version features a Blu-ray Disc optical drive so you can enjoy high-definition movies, as well as record, store and play back personal content on high-capacity BD media (up to 50 GB on a single disc).

The unit features a 22-inch diagonal WSXGA+ widescreen display, with Sony’s XBRITE-HiColor LCD technology.

The LT model has a mounting capability that allows users to attach a VESA-compatible mount (sold separately) to the unit and hang it on the wall of your bedroom, kitchen, office or attach to your desk.

Since the LT PC/TV can be used for television viewing as well as computing functions, an A/V power button lets you shut down the TV function, while your PC continues to run in the background. This lets you quickly turn the TV off and on without waiting for the PC to shut down or boot up.
