offers two home theater PC models designed to be more attractive living-room options. Both the VGX-TP20E ($1,600) and the more expensive VGX-TP25E ($2,000) have an interesting round chassis and a glossy black finish, and the two are very similar in their computing specs. We have not performed a hands-on review of the VGX-TP20E, but here is an overview of its features: Windows Vista Home Premium OS, a 500GB hard drive, a 2.10GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 processor, 2GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM, the Nvidia GeForce 8400GT graphics card, and the Intel HD audio sound card. (The pricier VGX-TP25E ups the SDRAM to 4GB.)
