Sony Vaio A215M ... consumer and professional models. Most are distinguished by large-diagonal widescreen LCDs delivering the convenience of more workspace for everyday use, and outstanding visuals for viewing DVDs and gaming. Better still, Sony's exclusive X-black screen technology ensures improved contrast, color reproduction and brightness compared to conventional panels. Subtle and continuous ergonomic enhancement is provided by the Auto Luminance Sensor, which monitors ambient lighting conditions and automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen for comfortable viewing and battery saving.
When it comes to creating DVDs, users are in for another pleasant surprise. All A200-Series machines feature dual format, double layer DVD burners that can read and write both the competing industry standard disc formats. The outstanding advantage of double layer DVD is that it provides nearly twice the capacity of ordinary DVDs, with no need to turn the disc over during recording or playback. This means users can record up to 4 hours of DVD-quality video on a single DVD.
On the move, the A200-Series showcases Intel's newest Centrino mobile technology, giving users the tangible advantages of boosted performance and longer battery life. Fast wireless networking is a standard feature, and several models add Bluetooth for effortless linking with handhelds and mobile phones. High-end models come with a neatly crafted wireless mouse for the last word in comfort and ease of use.
With the Docking Station, the A200-Series can fairly claim to be a replacement for your desktop, hi-fi system and VCR. Subtle and continuous ergonomic enhancement is provided by the Auto Luminance Sensor, which monitors ambient lighting conditions and automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen for comfortable viewing and battery saving.

I love the style of the laptop, and the setup is really easy - I managed to go through the first setup procedures whilst watching EastEnders on television. I was at first a bit puzzled and wary about the windows Vista program - I know that many complaints have been heard about it, but I had no such problems, I found it easy to use and reliable. Technical running wise I really don t have much of a clue - it works and has not let me down the ...
Sony Vaio CR31Z/RStylish laptop (not for people who hate red!) (318 words)

about 2-2.5 hours from it, so if you re planning on taking this travelling then buy an extra battery (or make sure you re always near a power socket!). It s the same with all Sony laptops, but one thing I really hated was all the pre-installed software. I literally had to spend over an hour removing it all! Be careful not to just blindly remove it all though, as some of it is useful - I discovered Photoshop Elements was included with my laptop. I definitely recommend spending the time to remove it all, as it will not only speed up your machine but also give you more hard drive ...
