Sony VAIO GX-XL2 Media Center PC

Sony VAIO GX-XL2 Media Center PC

Next up in our Computers and Accessories department, is a Media Center PC. Media Center PCs have become hot commodities as audio/video enthusiasts have made an effort to integrate their content into 1 location and with their television and audio systems. While there are many quality Media Center PCs, we chose to feature the Sony VAIO GX-XL2 Digital Living System which features a dual-core Intel CPU, an NVIDIA graphics card, 320GB of storage, and Windows XP Media Center edition. You can control the XL2 either via the remote control or the included wireless keyboard. Adding media, like your music, to the system is pretty easy – just stick your CDs in and hit a few buttons. With a Media Center PC, you can also forgo having a TiVo or other DVR. And for you folks who have already jumped on the High Def bus, the XL2 comes with an HDMI connector and also offers the added benefit of being able to capture and edit your 1080i HD Camcorder content. Also included is Sony’s DVgate Plus software which allows you to import video footage from several sources and edit it.
