Sony rolls out new Vaio line in Japan

Sony has rolled out several one piece computers that are designed to be used as media computers. The new Vaio L computers combine the main hardware and monitor into one package, similar to Sony's Vaio W computers and Apple's older iMacs.

The new line has several models which sport Intel's Core Duo processor and an integrated LCD screen. The computers also have a built-in video camera, DVD recorder and a Felica e-money reader. Felica contactless IC cards are already used in some parts of Japan to pay for railroad and bus transportation.

These computers will only ship in the Japanese market and will be available later this month for around $1400.
