Conclusion

Sony’s designers and engineers keep on turning out top-notch products. Having packed a high-performance hardware stuffing and a 17” display into the VAIO VGN-AR11SR, they also managed to keep the notebook small. So, the only thing that may disturb you in this really perfect machine is its high price.

As for the fashionable optical drive with a blue-violet laser, it is so far a future-oriented feature. But with the potential behind Blu-ray technology, I think this is going to be a very near future. Anyway, the owner of a VAIO VGN-AR11SR can boast having the most progressive solution for optical storage right now and here.

Highs:

  • Blu-ray drive
  • Superb design
  • Excellent performance
  • Large widescreen 17” display
  • Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition with a remote control
  • TV-tuner
  • HDMI connector
  • Port-replicator connector

Lows:

  • Poorly designed touchpad
  • Short battery life
  • No Recovery CDs
  • Scanty accessories
  • Very high price
