The Sony PCG 7192, part of Sony's Vaio line, combines a laptop's functionality with a desktop's high quality and durability. This means it is not tiny, but it is certainly portable, which gives it a definite edge over most desktop computer systems, particularly for those who travel with their computers often and need something with a hardy build.
The Sony PCG 7192L, like all computers, processes short-term functions with its random access memory (RAM) and its processor. The processor is a 2.2 gigahertz Intel with a 2 MB cache, and the Sony PCG 7192L comes with 4 GB of RAM installed, with the capacity for a further 2 GB more in the future. This RAM runs at 800 Mhz.
The hard drive is 320 GB -- enough for over 100 feature-length films. It spins at 5400 revolutions per minute. The DVD drive runs at 8x speed and can both read and write CDs and DVDs.
The Sony PCG 7192L has a 15.5-inch monitor (diagonal measurement) with 1366 x 768 resolution. It also comes with a 1.3-megapixel webcam that can be used for videoconferencing and taking pictures. The keyboard is a standard QWERTY keyboard, while the touchpad is translucent. It weighs 6 pounds, and is 15 inches long by 10 inches wide by 1 inch deep (closed).
