Sony aims for pro editing market with VAIO RM1N

Sony VAIO RM1N workstation

Though Sony's VAIO line is more closely linked with consumer laptops, the company has just announced the VAIO RM1N, the latest in its series of desktop workstations. The system is aimed squarely at digital video editing, since it comes preloaded with Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0, and its default storage comes in the form of a 1TB RAID 0 array. It likewise comes with a jog controller, and is one of the few machines that can burn double-layer Blu-Ray discs as well as play them.

The RM1N uses a 2.4GHz Core 2 Quad chipset with 2GB of RAM, and the graphics card is a 256MB GeForce 8600 GTS. A copy of Windows Vista Business is included, but users must buy their own display, and there are no capture cards pre-installed. The system does however have room for three PCI Express devices, as well as an extra four SATA hard drives. Ten USB and three i-LINK ports are front-mounted on the computer for easier peripheral connection. As yet, Sony has not mentioned when, where and at what price the computer will ship.
