Sony VAIO VGC-RT150Y 25.5-inch 1080p PC reviewed: Expensive but stunning

The Sony VAIO VGC-RT150Y was described to us back in September as an "all-in-one high-definition studio", and a look at the spec sheet indicated the company was certainly on the right track.  Intel's Core 2 Quad Q9400 processor running at up to 2.5GHz (6MB L2 cache), 8GB of RAM and 1TB of storage in dual-SATA user-accessible RAID array, coupled with a full-HD 1920 x 1200 25.5-inch LCD, makes for a monstrous system by anyone's standards.  PC Magazine have reinforced their desk and tried to find where the RT-series' steam runs out.

Sony VAIO TT ultraportable specs leak

Sony are preparing to drop a new VAIO ultraportable, the TT-series, which will replace the VAIO TZ.  Make no mistake, this is no netbook; according to SonyStyle's VAIO advisor, the four model TT-range will top out with a 1.4GHz Intel SU9400 Core 2 Duo, 4GB of RAM and dual 128GB SSDs in RAID setup.  The top-spec VGN-TT190UBX also has a Blu-ray burner and HDMI output, and weighs just 2.87-pounds; every model has an 11.1 inch LED screen with XBRITE-DuraView running at 1366 × 768.
