Premier performance. Professional multimedia tools. Cutting-edge design.


Bringing you screaming-fast performance in a whisper-quiet environment. The Intel® Pentium® D dual-core processor delivers robust performance for running multiple, demanding applications simultaneously.


RAID-ready Serial ATA hard drives deliver incredible hard-drive speeds, enabling multiple configurations for performance and/or mirroring. Advanced DDR2 memory provides ultra high-speed computing. An integrated

DVD+R Double Layer/DVD±RW drive

3 provides data storage of up to 8.5GB on one Double Layer DVD+R disc. PCI Express x16 video graphics capabilities enable cinematic-quality effects and color. Plus, the VAIO

RC Desktop is designed for expansion, with the capacity for up to an incredible 2TB of storage in multiple drives to help accommodate a large collection of high-quality media files.


The innovative liquid-cooling system and advanced noise-reduction technology of the VAIO® RC Digital

Studio™ PC enables premier performance without the heat or noise of traditional fan-cooled PC configuration.
