A notebook, also known as laptop, is a portable computer. When you are looking for the right notebook, it is important to know where you are going to work with it. Do you want to use it on the road? Choose a model with a special energy-saving \'mobile\' processor, a good battery and a reasonably small display. This will allow you to work longer with the same battery and saves you the trouble of carrying around a large display that consumes a lot of precious battery power. Or will you be using you notebook mainly in places where you will have access to a power outlet? Then choose a desktop processor (more processing power for less money) and an ordinary battery. This will save you a lot of money, which you could then spend on a bigger screen. You\'ll work faster because you can view more information at once and it\'s great for multimedia!

Good Blu-ray recordable drive. Gorgeous piano-black finish. Includes HDMI cable and converter. Internal analog-TV tuner.
Bad Buggy InterVideo software. Burning a 22GB image took forever (3 hours). Poor battery life. Expensive.
Bottom line If youre an early adopter or need to create HD content on the go, the Sony VAIO VGN-AR190G notebook with Blu-ray drive is your best bet, but like Toshibas Qosmio G35-AV650, it has a few glitches...
With the cinema industry developing at a tremendous pace in the last years, it is no wonder there’s so much talk about the battle of optical disc formats which even concerns people outside the computer world. The CD once seemed so capacious and unri...
