Pocket Lint wrote a review of VAIO VGN-AR11S:
An Intel Core Duo T2500 processor, which is a dual-core processor running each core at 2GHz and supported by a gigabyte of DDR2 memory means you editing as well as running Hi-Def footage isn’t too much of a chore and following on with the dual theme, you’ll even find a pair of 100GB hard drives so storage isn’t a problem either. Graphics are handled by the Nvidia GeForce Go 7600 GT chip, which is a powerful mainstream solution that will more than handle your gaming needs. High-speed networks can be accessed via 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi and Gigabit Ethernet. Enhancing multimedia use, an HDMI-out port can be used to connect to external high-definition displays, and a Dolby 7.1 digital out can link to amplifiers for full surround sound.
Feature includes two integrated speakers, built-in camera and microphone, FireWire port, S-Video port, Memory card slots, coaxial cable, remote control, and DVI adapter. Via Pocket Lint.
