Pros: Great machine and very capable. But -
Cons: 32MB cache hard drive ? TV Tuner wont work in Windows Media Center ?
SOny did a great job with this machine. But they missed the boat on the Hard Drive & TV Tuner. You just cant plug in your coax cable and use Media Center. You have to SPEND MORE MONEY for an ir blaster & something else. WHats the point of a 3rd generation i& with a really S L O W hard drive. And the tech support is awful.

Pros: very easy set up and great networking
Cons: too much sony software
It was up and running on the home network in 5 minutes, which was impressive to me. Windows 7 start-up is fast too. As a sleek touchscreen suited for home multimedia entertainment, its a great machine for the kids and definitely windows 8 ready. Home connectivity is excellent and it has been very stable and quiet. Appreciate useful touches such as HDMI in/out, charging USB port, slot loading blue-ray drive as well as seamless compatibility with my PS3. I little high on the price end, but very nicely packaged to do anything. 5 stars if it had an SSD option/bigger graphics card and a 27 inch touch screen.
