The all-in-one VAIO L Series makes an elegant focal point for your home multimedia collection. Ideal for any living space, the slim, space-saving design features a glossy black finish, with the tilt-adjustable ‘floating’ display resting on a sleek V-shape stand.
The stunning design of new VAIO L Series is accented by a 24″ (61cm) Full HD VAIO Display Plus screen with LED backlight. This super-size display brings all your movies, photos, music and games vividly to life with superb clarity and contrast.
It’s beautifully easy to interact with your media collection using the full-frame multi-touch screen. Open and scroll through files, zoom and rotate images with intuitive fingertip gestures… and no mouse or menus needed.
In an exciting innovation by Sony, the LCD screen of VAIO L Series is surrounded by a touch sensitive new “Edge Access” that gives friendly ‘no mouse’ access to key functions.
Touching the VAIO logo in the top corner of the bezel launches Media Gallery — the intuitive way to browse and enjoy your collection of photos, videos and music. Other touch-sensitive regions of the bezel let you navigate or zoom documents and web pages, flick between on-screen windows, launch an on-screen ‘virtual’ keyboard or view a handy operation guide. There’s also an illuminated Sony logo on the bezel that dims at a touch for comfortable viewing in darkened rooms.
With the latest generation of speedy Intel® Core™ i7 or i5 processors inside, VAIO L Series provides all the power you need to manage today’s media collections. Latest NVIDIA® graphics with DX11 support assure an even more satisfying HD video experience with the new generation of PC games designed for multi-core processors.
Depending on configuration, a Blu-ray Disc™ writer lets you create, edit and store HD content with up to 50GB of storage on a single Blu-ray Disc. And whether you’re playing games or watching HD movies, S-Force Front Surround 3D complements your HD entertainment experience with powerful, ultra-realistic audio.
The integrated HD web camera powered by “Exmor” delivers a crisp, clear High Definition image. It’s ideal for more realistic, satisfying web chats and video calls.
With a touch of the handily-placed WEB button you’re powered up and online in seconds. There’s also an ASSIST button that launches VAIO Care software, troubleshooting problems and keeping your VAIO in top condition.
An HDMI output connects VAIO L Series to any HD Ready television to watch video, photos, graphics and games on your TV screen. There’s also an HDMI input that turns VAIO into a Full HD monitor, even when the PC’s not booted up. You’ll enjoy a superb view of PLAYSTATION®3 games and other connected HD sources, with incredible detail and contrast.
Wireless data transfers are accelerated by Bluetooth® 3.0, while SuperSpeed USB 3.0 boosts file transfer speeds by up to ten times compared with USB 2.0.
