Sony Vaio A215Z ... including both 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've found this an excellent computer. I move around a lot so I wanted something light and slim. However it's also great on power - it has windows 2000 and 128 SDRAM. I'll never get through the 20GB hard disk but it's nice to have and does not add much to the cost. The other great thing about it for a mobile user ...
Sony Vaio Z600TEKZ600 TEK & HEK - another master piece but with flaws! (627 words)

I looked long & hard before settling on the Z600 to replace my Vaio 505SN (PII 400). Compared with the other 'super compact' models I looked at from Toshiba, Sony, Asus etc - the Z600 felt streets ahead on build quality. As with my 505SN the magnesium case gives a solid, high quality feel without actually making the unit heavy! The mains transformer is larger than my previous Vaio. It is considerably heavier too. The DC power connector is now more substantial and less fiddly to connect which has to be a plus. Toshiba have a model of a similar size to the Z600LEK / HEK which has internal DVD, but IMHO the Sony is miles ahead on build quality. On-board ...
