PC Magazine takes a look at Sony's latest venture into the world of media PCs. The Vaio VGX-TP25E certainly stands out with its circular case, but does the design hold up when it comes to performance? Check out what PC Magazine found after the jump.
A full review examines all the details of this $3,000 media machine. Some features that we found exciting were its impressive specs, wireless keyboard and focus on HD content. While a wireless keyboard is pretty standard, the PC's fully loaded memory and ample hard drive space go far beyond most media PCs. An added bonus is a nearly silent operation and great performance coupled with energy efficiency. The only flaws PC Magazine found was a slower loading Blu-Ray drive and the external tuner(s), giving the user more to hide in their media center.
All-in-all, despite its high price tag, they found Sony's TP25E to be a powerful contender with its media center competition.
