Summary: It is my last sony and window product. It was pricy, but usual windows problems: slow, swallow trash from every downloads, swallows viruses despite of the firewall and antiviral software. After the last crash due to virus with astive antiviral software, I went to Mac store and got new Masc for same price.
Summary: This computer is just down right awesome! If you are in the market for a new desktop get this! I was always cautious buying an all in one computer if you have a tight spot to put it in then it wont suit your need, it is wide and you need room to open side disk drive. It burns DVD's and CD's and plays blueray I have a lap top and an older PC and since I bought this "touch screen" I have barely used either of my other to computers.

Summary: A sequence of events: 1. I had a Sony Vaio LT all in one. Very satisfied owner but it was 1.6 GHz Core 2 Duo, and needed to be upgraded. 2. After carefully evaluating my alternatives I decided to get an iMac. Thought why not give the Mac a shot ( I love all iOS devices and own them all-iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, AppleTV). Plus, the iMac had superb build quality and priced quite attractively. I don't need a gaming rig. 3.
Summary: Bought this computer(burgundy)last fall (2010)and have had nothing but headaches. Have called Sony Support (8) times and I still have problems. The most troublesome issue right now is that the computer won't wake up after being in sleep mode. So to get it back on I have to press and hold the on button and reboot. Haven't had to chkdisk for awhile so there has been some progress.
Summary: Based upon reviews of a consumer magazine's ratings, I purchased what was rated as the "top" performer of the 24" all-in-one desktop computer systems. That computer was flawed from the very beginning, the fan ran constantly, the system was cumbersom to operate, and I was forced to send the recommended system back to the supplier. I then purchased as a replacement, the second rated 24" all-in-one which was the Sony Vaio.
Summary: Here is an update to this review which led to an upgraded review of the machine: My machine was repaired by a technician sent by SONY. He was extremely competent and replaced the motherboard. The machine now works well and I am enjoying using it. Given the lack of a backup screen, I am pursuing backup for data and other techniques that would allow access in case something happens in the future. This is a vulnerable design.
