The Sony VAIO L is an all-in-one, touch-enabled HD PC/TV released in October 2009 alongside Microsoft Windows 7. It features a large 24” WUXGA widescreen panel that not only displays high-definition content at 1080p (1920x1080), but can in fact be swiped with a finger for easily swooping through images and websites. Signature to the VAIO L is its connectivity, as it's built to function as an HDTV; it includes both an HDMI connection and an ATSC tuner for over-the-air signal reception. It can basically connect to any video-capable device, including HD cable boxes, satellite receivers, and even a Playstation 3 gaming console. Additional features to note include 802.11b/g/n WiFi connectivity, an integrated Blu-ray Disc drive, VESA mounting, and built-in DVR capabilities. 

Additional Information

Core specifications include an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 500GB SATA hard-disc drive.  It can be configured to include a 1TB SATA hard-disc drive, Blu-Ray Burner, and 12 GB of Ram with a 2.93 Ghz Quad Core Intel Processor.
