Sony drives DVD formats in Vaio

Sony plans to release a new VAIO model which features its sought-after multiformat DVDRW technology.

The vendor has announced the GRV7P – a Pentium 4-powered notebook with a DVD drive that supports both +RW and –RW technology.

Sony is also debuting its “Click to DVD” concept by which users can view, edit and burn home movies from a camcorder with a touch of a button.

Sony sees the GRV7P as a desktop replacement – the notebook features a 60GB hard disk drive, 512MB of DDR SDRAM, three USB ports and a suite of software including Adobe Acrobat Reader, Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0 and Norton Antivirus 2002.

It will be available on February 24. RRP: AUS$5999

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
