    The very idea of having an all in one is so that people don't need to upgrade, much like a PS3.

    Intel and nVidia in a hard-to-upgrade, 3D-oriented package? No swear word invented by man could be put in front of "no" and be quite strong enough to convey my feelings on this one. I like VAIO laptops but this just sounds hideous.

    ugh, i dont know why i bother with you people sometimes. you do understand that there is a whole planet of people out there that don't live every waking hour of their lives on their PC, right?

    a lot of people who use their home computer for email, some videos and what not probably spend an hour MAX per day on their home PC. this looks like a pretty interesting product and will most likely be expensive and hard to upgrade but the people who buy it dont care about that. they have the money to spend. sony does research, determines that a product like this is worth developing based on what they know about the market, and they manufacture it. blast it all you want, but you are the nerd.

    I had to work on a few of the older versions of these hopefully Sony realized fans blowing at each other don't do a good job of anything besides covering everything in dust.

    Yes it comes with Windows just like everything else.

    Upgrade the graphics, put it in a 42in and 52in screen versions, a couple hdmi out, and would make a sweet ps4

    While that rant is very true, it's aimed at the wrong product. This is a 3D capable PC that is quite expensive. If the target consumer is people who only use their computer for email and some videos, why on earth would they spend this much money on a PC?

    The true problem, as I see it, is that this product sits squarely between two separate groups of people: those who, as you said, spend only a few hours per day max on their computer, and those who are wanting a little bit more out of their computer but aren't quite up to geek standards. It doesn't hit either group. The latter group tends to play casual games which don't come in 3D yet, and if you're spending this much for 3D why not just get a PS3 which is already 3D capable?

    As I see it, this product is for people who don't want the expense of a 3D HDTV but still want to try out 3D. As such it will most likely sell very well, but it certainly isn't going to find its way into my household.

    This is the ultimate bedroom PC. Get done surfing, fire up the Sat or Cable box, and watch TV on the same unit. Takes no more space than a TV.

    I have an all-in-one iMac in my bedroom for space saving reasons.
    You are forgetting the people that very specifically want this type of footprint, but want a little more than what the typical POS all-in-one offers. If this was an IPS panel, I'd be all over it as an upgrade to mine.

    If I was a Sony VP I'd put ps3's in TVs.

    You are completely correct. I had forgotten about that. Perhaps first impressions aren't always the most correct.
