High Definition Entertainment

The VAIO RT is designed to take full advantage of a new era in High Definition entertainment.

It features an integrated Blu-ray Disc™ Drive with read and write capability. This allows high bandwidth playback of latest HD movies plus creation and editing of your own productions created on an HD camcorder. You can also store up to 50GB of multimedia data on one disc using the Blu-ray Disc™ Drive, as well as play and record all CD and DVD formats.

The VAIO RT connects easily to an HD-Ready TV using HDMI output for enjoying Full HD 1080p pictures on a big screen. HDMI Input enables easy connection to a PlayStation® 3 for playing latest games even when PC power is switched off. The PC then functions as an HD display monitor.

Home Theater Sound Quality

Enjoy all the excitement of home cinema with stereo speakers delivering 2 × 5.5W for faithful reproduction of original sounds. These specially designed speakers are partnered by a powerful 11W subwoofer on the back side of the PC providing impressive bass and low frequency sound. Ideal for all-action movies and music concerts. Speakers have been designed and developed to ensure an optimum balance of components, materials and structure for the best possible audio performance. Also featured is Dolby Home Theater® for powerful virtual surround. Dolby Home Theater® includes advanced audio technologies to place you right at the heart of the action for a true cinema-at-home experience. Optical out sockets allow easy connection to Home Cinema systems.

Big screen viewing

Home entertainment and multimedia computing comes into its own with a big screen high resolution display. Enjoy pin-sharp images, ultra-bright pictures and up to 100% colour fidelity with Sony X-black LCD technology featuring four lamps.

The VAIO RT features a huge 25.5” Full HD X-black LCD display with WUXGA resolution of 1920×1200 and 16:10 aspect ratio for watching HD movies at true native resolution of full HD 1080p – no need to reduce quality by scaling the image to the screen.

Cutting edge graphics

The awesome NVIDIA® GeForce® 9600M GT graphics card with 512MB of dedicated VRAM provides supreme 3D decoding and seriously smooth 3D performance – ideal for watching HD movies, playing latest games and creating multimedia presentations. One of the big advantages of NVIDIA® GeForce® 9000 Series graphics cards is that they take over the decoding process from the processor to ensure the best possible video playback.

Ultimate multimedia

The VAIO RT is a seriously powerful VAIO desktop PC that delivers the ultimate in home entertainment and multimedia computing.

On board is a mega fast Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Q9400 processor and 4096MB of DDR2 SDRAM memory for outstanding performance. Work at maximum efficiency with easy multi-tasking, rapid file access and trouble-free data storage.

Advanced Hard Disk Drive design

Videos, photos, movies and music downloads take up a lot of space on your computer. The VAIO RT includes a massive hard drive capacity of 1TB on two drives for easy expandability.

The VAIO RT is designed for your home and is consequently extremely quiet. Using advanced design and engineering techniques, hard disc drive vibration and noise has been kept to a minimum and heat dissipation improved for near silent operation.
