At 416 x 300 x 34mm and 8.3-pounds, the VGN-AR11S manages to house a 17-inch WXGA+ widescreen display, pefect for watching your favorite movies. It features an Intel Core Duo T2500 (2.0GHz) processor, 1GB of memory, 2 x 100GB SATA HDDs, a Blu-ray drive, NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600GT graphics, and a built-in webcam. External interfaces include three USB 2.0 ports, a FireWire port, 802.11 a/b/g Wi-Fi, 4-in-1 memory card reader, and an HDMI port. Here’s the verdict:

What you’ve actually got here is a superb Media Center PC, with all the components to allow it to be the centre of your high-definition entertainment setup. Yes it’s pretty expensive, but you really are getting not just cutting edge, but potentially future proof technology here – once Blu-ray movies start to appear, the AR11S will add another very impressive string to its bow
