Sony states that the PCs are designed for everyday home use, which would suggest that they’re not the most powerful systems the company has ever produced. They’re no pushovers either.

As with previous VAIO systems, Sony is pushing the bundled software that includes Music Box’s “intelligent” selection of music based on 12 Tone Analysis, and Movie Story’s arranging and editing of photos and videos.
Sony’s new all-in-one desktop PC is the VAIO JS1 features an Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 processor, 3GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive, 20.1-inch X-black 1,680 x 1,050 resolution LCD with multi-lamp technology, Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500HD unit, and built in Motion Eye webcam.
