Sony emphasizes two major areas in its computer business: its cool, cool, supercool laptops; and the professional and “prosumer” multimedia desktops. (“Prosumers” are consumer-hobbyists willing to pay premium prices for near-professional equipment.)
So Sony offers fast processors, fat drives, and lots of high-powered graphics options for music, image, and video editing — not to mention that inimitable Sony Style. At healthy prices, of course.
For the standard business desktop, Sony’s not really the most obvious buy. Unless you are doing some kind of multimedia work, you’ll be paying for capabilities you won’t be using. If you are doing anything multimedia, though, and can justify the cost, Sony makes some dazzling boxes that will make you the envy of your friends. It’s really the only brand that competes in the Apple design space both for look and for capability.
Look, Ma! No computer! The Sony VAIO W series is minimalist design at its best–for those of us too hip for the room.
