Sony VAIO VGC-LS25E Desktop PC Review
It was that time of year again for me. My computer was slowing down and already gunked up from all the massive files and hard labor put into the machine over the past year. It was time for me to get a new computer!
Usually I will pick up one of the latest eMachines packages from BestBuy, as I usually just pick up a new computer each year and these have been pretty well for me. I decided to stop by BestBuy and see what they had. I walked in and immediately saw the Sony VAIO VGC-LS25E Desktop PC (Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T5600, 2 GB RAM, 250 GB Hard Drive, DVDÂ±RW Drive, Vista Premium). I asked one of the staff members if they had any complaints on the computer, and right away he started to gush over great the system was. So I told him I would take it… then of course he tried to sell me all the extra crap and warranties with it!
Besides that BestBuy is a great place to shop, I also was looking to buy a computer from there because I already had around $200 in gift certificates. I was the TOP AFFILIATE at DeezBrand.com for several months in a row. DeezBrand.com awards their top affiliate with a nice gift certificate each month, along with some nice prizes if you hit a minimum amount of sales. Anyway, I had been holding onto these certificates for some time and finally found a good use for them.
As for the computer, the screen is awesomely huge and clear. What I really love about the Sony Vaio is it’s XBRITE-HiColor Screens. Compared to any other regular monitor, the clarity and color on these are just amazing. What also is amazing about the system is that there is no tower, the whole system is packaged into the back of the monitor and there are no annoying cords to deal with (except the main power plug). This Sony Vaio Desktop is also loaded with wireless internet access, TV and DVR capabilities, remote control and a built in webcam. The all new Windows Vista is also packaged with the system as well. No complaints on Vista yet, just might take you a little time to get used to some of the changes, but the addition of widgets on the desktop screen is definitely a plus.
Unfortunately, the only problem I have experienced is the inability to play World of Warcraft for more than 30 minutes without a blue screen of death coming on and locking the whole computer up. I have yet to find out what the problem is. I have updated the driver and talked to support, but nothing fixed yet. You would think a brand new $2000 Sony computer would work perfect with everything!
