Product Description

For the user on the move who wants desktop performance wherever their work may take them, the AR Series combines everything you would expect in a notebook with two items that you wouldn’t - a High Definition optimised 17 inch ultra widescreen display, and the latest Intel dual-core processor.  It means that as well as offering wireless connectivity and portability, you also have the power, screen size and resolution to get the most from professional software.  A larger viewing area makes it easier to use floating palettes or open documents side-by-side, while the boost to performance also makes it simple to work with audio and video editing applications that require both high resolution displays and high speed processing. Plus as the screen benefits from Sony’s next generation X-Black technology, definition is always sharper and brighter with almost no glare, so it is more comfortable to use for longer periods and less tiring on the eyes.
