Description

The VAIO AR Series marks another industry milestone for VAIO in terms of both design and capabilities. With its high-resolution widescreen display, dual-core processor and integrated Blu-ray optical drive, the AR Series is more than just a powerful mobile computer.

Thanks to the innovative use of strong but lightweight materials in its construction and attention to ergonomics in its design, the AR Series is easy to use at home or at the office and light enough for working anywhere in-between. All of which means that whatever your demands, and however you choose to use it, the AR Series can open the doors to a host of new creative, commercial and recreational possibilities.
For the user on the move who wants desktop performance wherever their work may take them, the AR Series combines everything you would expect in a notebook with two items that you wouldn't - a High Definition optimised 17" ultra widescreen display, and the latest Intel dual-core processor.
It means that as well as offering wireless connectivity and portability, you also have the power, screen size and resolution to get the most from professional software.

A larger viewing area makes it easier to use floating palettes or open documents side-by-side, while the boost to performance also makes it simple to work with audio and video editing applications that require both high resolution displays and high speed processing. Plus as the screen benefits from Sony's next generation X-Black technology, definition is always sharper and brighter with almost no glare, so it is more comfortable to use for longer periods and less tiring on the eyes.

voted hot

I hate that:

Hard Drive: 300 GB - Serial ATA-150 - 4200 rpm

Why not 5200 rpm?!
#4
graphics card isnt up 2 much for the price
#5
not a bad price
#6
Shame it doesn't have a Bluray writer as well. Good price, I've found 4200rpm hard drives don't hamper performance that much compared to 5400rpm.

Voted Hotttt...

Too tempting to get myself another Vaio.. Should I ???
#11
Can someone explain the point of having Blu Ray on a laptop? There's little point in HD on such a tiny screen, and without HDCP on the output you can't play it back at full rez on an external screen. No PC games or software come on Blu Ray discs. So what's the point?
#12
It just occurred to me, if I order this will I have to pay VAT/Duties on delivery?
I think Play.com are based in Jersey

i'm in the market for a mid range laptop and have found this to be slightly better value

the HP has a 9600GT which is better for 3d games and I know its more money but since you can claim £100 back off HP it will work out less! :-)
