Sony releases VAIO PCV-W500GN1 desktop

The latest entry in Sony’s desktop PC family multiplies entertainment options in any room with a 17.5-inch wide format bright LCD, integrated DVD/CD-RW drive and Giga Pocket® personal video recorder. It has a small footprint and breathtaking design highlighted by a white aluminum finish and acrylic accents.

“This is big screen entertainment for a small space,” said Hideyuki Furumi, director of VAIO desktop marketing for Sony Electronics. “Time-shift your TV viewing; edit your own photos, music or video; and output your creative projects to CD or DVD — all in the fraction of the space needed for an old 15-inch CRT.”

The new W model adjusts to the needs of the user and the environment with several operating modes.

When the attached keyboard is open, the PC is ready for computing – anything from standard productivity functions to any of Sony’s included multimedia applications, such as Click to DVD
