Hi‘Floating’ frame design
A glassy transparent contour and an elegant aluminium frame looks beautiful and blends perfectly with contemporary interior décor.
A new upright stand has been incorporated into the design. Store the slim keyboard onto the stand beneath the display when watching movies or TV programmes to save space. The stand tilts from -5º to +13º for ultimate flexibility and allows viewing at 0º which is perfect for enjoying TV.
Simplicity is achieved by eliminating all visible clutter. The clean and flush back panel is carefully designed to look elegant from any angle. A wireless mouse and keyboard avoids tangled cables.
With no complicated connections, it’s easy to move the PC from one room to another.
High Definition Entertainment
The VAIO LN is designed to take full advantage of a new era in High Definition entertainment.
It features an integrated Blu-ray Disc™ Combo Drive with read-only capability for high bandwidth play-back of HD movies. Ideal if you’ve invested in Blu-ray Disc™ collections for PlayStation® 3. The Blu-ray Disc™ Combo Drive also plays and records all CD and DVD formats.
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.
Big screen viewing
Home entertainment comes into its own with big screen high resolution displays. Enjoy pin-sharp images, ultra-bright pictures and excellent colour fidelity with Sony X-black LCD technology featuring four lamps.
The VAIO LN features a large 20.1” X-black LCD display with WSXGA+ resolution of 1680×1050 and 16:10 aspect ratio for watching HD movies.
