Sony reported today it will start shipping a new all-in-one Vaio PC next month and plans to add three LCD monitors to its line by April.
The Vaio PCV-W20 has a space saving feature in which the keyboard folds up onto the main body of the PC, which contains a 15.3-inch LCD, the computer's CPU and drives. The Vaio is powered by an Intel Pentium 4 1.8GHz processor with 512Kb of cache memory, 512MB or RAM, a 60GB hard drive, CD-RW and DVD drives and it comes bundled with Sony's PictureGear Studio, Dvgate, SonicStage and MovieShaker software.
The unit will have a $1,600 estimated street price.
The three LCDs now shipping are the 15-inch SDM-HS53, 17-inch SDM-HS73 and the SDM-HS93. The SDM-HS53 and the SDM-HS73 will ship in March with respective street prices of $329 and $549. The 19-inch model will follow in early April with an $899 suggested retail price.
