An optional HDMI™ input is available, so in addition to the unit’s built-in HD features you can connect a compatible HD cable box, satellite receiver or PLAYSTATION®3 (all sold separately) via a single cable and enjoy HD entertainment without powering on the PC.
And with built-in DVR capabilities and up to 500GB of storage on the VPC-L114, you can create a personal entertainment library with up to 50 hours of HD television.
It comes pre-loaded with Windows 7 Home Premium. Leveraging these new operating systems, the L Series is able to offer new functionalities such as a touch screen display enabling you to do anything you could do with a mouse with the touch of a finger.
Launch directly into Sony’s own Media Gallery software by pushing the designated VAIO button on the keyboard and create high-quality home movies and slideshows in three simple steps. Import your photos and video, choose a theme and soundtrack, click finish and the software does the rest, generating a professional-looking movie complete with special effects- all by touching the screen.
The unit packs an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, loads of RAM, and a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce series graphics for graphic-intense gaming and movies.
By utilizing built-in wireless 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi technology and your wireless router (required, sold separately), you can position the model virtually anywhere in your home and access the Internet, email or home network.
The model is ideal for anywhere space is at a premium. It has a mounting capability that allows users to attach a VESA-compatible mount (sold separately) to it and hang it on the wall of your bedroom, kitchen, office or attach to your desk.
When not mounted to the wall, the L Series features an adjustable stand to help you adjust the unit to meet your desired viewing or touch angle or simply to decrease the slant for space-saving. A wireless keyboard, mouse and remote control are included.
The VAIO L Touch HD PC/TV will retail for $1,699. It will be available at www.sonystyle.ca, Sony Style retail locations, and select retailers around the country starting next month. [October 9, 2009]
