When the new VAIO L Series All-in-One Touchscreen computer launched, I had to put myself on the order list. It’s become one of our most popular models right now and you also may have seen it featured in one of Microsoft’s new Windows 7 commercials.
The story aired is about “Sophie” who wanted a touch screen computer running on Windows 7. She asked, and Sony+Microsoft delivered. You can watch the journey unfold in the commercial.

What you may not know is this fun factoid that I wanted to share: All the Sony designers featured in the commercial are actually real Sony VAIO designers. The casting and location shoot was at the Sony headquarters in Tokyo, Japan and featured over 8 different designers who truly help make our VAIO’s come to life. The commercial was first aired in November in the US but was also aired across the globe including the U.K. in Canada, Germany and Australia.
The morale of the story: Computer designers can act
Don’t believe me? Watch the video for yourself. Now although it would be a little difficult for me to obtain a signed autograph from any of these multi-talented folks for you, I can at least point you to where you can get a VAIO L Touchscreen computer. Enjoy.
