      Good system!

      With the invention of laptops, tablets etc- i find that anyone using a desktop PC will think that's it's rubbish or pale in comparison- so i am going to review this as a stand alone product- rather than comparing it to what is in the market today.

      Visually is doesn't look outdated- it's black and silver steel and looks really smart.

      It also includes along with the desktop unit:
      wireless keyboard
      wireless mouse- you will need batteries
      intergrated 15 inch LCD monitor/tower
      A remote control

      The keyboard is quite large and it's easy to type on- i have large fingers so i need something spacious!

      This desktop could be confused for a laptop because of it's smart design and wireless qualities- it also comes with a DVD and sound speakers. The monitor screen can be moved up and down. This comes with a media centre- where you can write CD's, share photos/videos/music etc.



      You have to be pretty close to the monitor to see and type- the screen is not going to be as clear and as crisp as modern day machines.
      The computer is a little bit slow for PC Gaming or Downloading things on the internet.


      You are looking at around the 900 pound mark for this product nowdays- which might seem quite expensive but what you are paying for is a full system. It is a matter of preference of what you like- if you like a whole unit pehpas for a home office this would be a good choice.

      A dubble WOW!! I am also one of the few happy owners of this fantastic machine. And totaly agree with the also happy Mr. Meissastar. I purchased the Sony VAIO PCV-V1 in 2004 for 1899,00 Euro's, and still in good condition. Sony Rules...

      gorgeous and simple to use

      wow! i love this computer and it's the one i'm using right now to write this review!
      This is a review written by a computer layman, so not much techie stuff!
      Well, for a start it's a very sexy little machine...all black with brushed steel.
      The main components are:
      wireless keyboard with removable cover
      wireless mouse(2 AA batteries)
      remote control
      intergrated 15 inch LCD monitor/tower

      This computer is like a cross between and laptop and a normal pc, the main thing is not having to worry about where to put the tower.
      So what else? there is just so much...
      lots of interfaces(places to stick wires!), DVD-RW drive,intel pentium processor 4, 3W+3W speakers(really nice sound quality too), lots of software for music,photos,mediasharing,video/tv,office,etc.

      The monitor screen can be tilted up/down and sideways, which can make viewing easier. And the DVD/CD is on the right side of the monitor.
      The other great thing is that you can use this computer as a tv with additional function of pausing live tv through the Giga Pocket!(though you also have to recored at the same time).Plus it's only built for normal tv, not digital.

      I particulary like the music function of the media centre, the speakers have a great clear tone and can be very loud! Plus there are very funky graphics on the Windows media player which are very atmospheric. Also the CD rewriter is pretty fast, only takes about 5 minutes in all to copy a CD.

      What don't i like? well the main problem is how close you have to be to the monitor when you're using the keyboard..so if i'm too far away i lose letters!! same goes for the mouse. Also, i have some trouble with the SonicStage software(music) and end up having to use the windows media player instead.
      The other thing i have read is that it's not good for pc gaming, but personally that's not something i use it for.

      Bar those two quibbles, this is a lovely and stylish computer.

      The cost of this media centre has also dropped from approx £1400 to around the £900 mark now. So it does cost more than the avereage home PC, but makes up for that in style and substance.
