New Sony PC with DVD-R

Sony officially presented the Vaio MX PC at Comdex. It combines the two areas of computer and entertainment and includes a DVD-R drive, a 40 watt sound amplifier and a Pentium 4 with 1.7 GHz clock frequency.

Sony presented some new computer and entertainment products at Comdex. The new Vaio MX PC combines both worlds in one device: TV, radio, CD and DVD playback and recording, personal video recorder and a normal PC. There is also an integrated sound amplifier with an output of 40 watts. The many functions are controlled either using the keyboard, mouse or the supplied remote control, a display on the front shows settings and status information. The system itself consists of a Pentium 4 processor with a clock rate of 1.7 GHz, 512 MB RAM, GeForce2 MX with 32 MB and an 80 GB hard drive. The Vaio MX has a CD/DVD burner, a minidisk drive and a memory stick slot. A floppy disk drive has to be dispensed with, a PC card slot is used instead. The Vaio PC is also easy to connect, because there are plenty of connections: Modem, Ethernet, serial, parallel, USB, Firewire, video in/out (digital and analog) and audio in/out (optical and analog) leave almost nothing to be desired . Only the price leaves something to be desired, because the device is now available in the USA for the equivalent of around DM 6000 (US $ 2800). When the Vaio MX will also be available in Germany is unfortunately still unknown.
