Sony’s “innovative” new Vaio JS1 is certainly “one good-looking computer, and it’s hard to know how Sony’s engineers came up with such an out-there, brand new PC design,” Charlie Sorrel blogs for Wired.
“The computer is completely housed in that thin, brushed metal (or is it silver plastic?) and glass slab, and the keyboard is a sleek and slimline model which can be easily slid out of the way. There’s even a vertical optical drive in there, although Sony has opted for the old-fashioned kind with an actual pop-out disk tray,” Sorrel reports. “In fact, it seems that Sony’s innovation knows no bounds: there’s a webcam built in to the 20.1″ screen bezel.”
Sorrel writes, “The price has not yet been announced, but it had better be less than $1200. Otherwise, you might want to buy the real iMac. That’ll run Windows just fine, and it will also run the Mac OS, which Sony’s clone can’t do.”
