Sony has produced the World's first Blu-ray notebook with its VAIO VGN-AR11S. Along with a Blu-ray re-writeable drive, it features a 1920x1200 17" screen and a HDCP compliant HDMI port.
There are two formats bluray & HD DVD, I am very interested in HD DVD for the far better value and currently better quality, so I'll skip it, thanks. :)
Yeah i agree from the things ive been hearing about HD-DVD from the outstanding picture quality to the really cool special features they are able to produce with HD-DVD discs is awesome escellially if your a movie buff like me
At least they have an excuse to overprice their laptops now.
a re-writable blu-ray drive offers alot more than just the ability to watch movies. to be able to burn a 25 gb disc on a laptop. sounds like something my office could use.
This is way better than HDDVD. You got Blu Ray movies and WAAAAAY more capacity than HDDVD.
wow, i want this laptop !
I'm sure you do
...a genius concept for data storage, but not for movies and videogames. I'm saying the BluRay is perfect for backing up entire systems, and school work, and music, etc. But to pay that much for a movie or video game? Nah.
The reason the blu-ray's picture quality isnt as good as HD-DVD as of right now is becuase the Samsung BD-P1000 (the only blu-ray player is the market right now) has a chip not functioning correctly therefore displaying the video with some problems in it. Samsung said they will fix this problem for future BD-P1000 and the ones that are out now will get a fireware upgrade to correct it. The video quality doesnt depend on what type of codec they use it just depends on how much memory is going to be used for the video. Mpeg2, Mpeg4 AVC, VC1 etc can all display the same quality of video. Blu-ray uses Mpeg2 right now cause it can afford to with 25gb-50gbs of disc space and can switch to other codecs including VC1 when it is needed.
Just cost to much.
wow think of all the spaces i can save now. instead of tons of disc ill have like 10 disc LOL. WOW!!!
all my heavy drum samples ,instrumentals etc all on one dics..anyone know if bluray drives are planned for mac computers sometime next year?
"a re-writable blu-ray drive offers alot more than just the ability to watch movies. to be able to burn a 25 gb disc on a laptop. sounds like something my office could use." Okay Genius now it take a Blu-Ray Drive to play it in now where are you going to find another Blu-Ray to play it in?

please do not attempt to question someone's inteligence when you do not know the situtations. I work for a company that develops WSR-88D Level 2 Data Readers (that is Raw Doplar Radar data instead of the pre-processed data that is used by the companies that make the maps and sell them to your local weather station. my current program work, as is, is currently 17 GB. if my laptop had this drive, as well as the other people in my office, when comparing items with co-workers, i wouldn't have to either A) save it on the server, which takes forever or B) carry around multiple dvd-r's which must them all be loaded onto the machine before it will work properly. if i could have a single dics inwhich i could run this information from, that would be very handy. perhaps you are right, i am a genius
i never knew there where blu-ray RW already, sony is doing well, remeber how long it took for dvd and cds to get a RW and the have relesed it already...and kingboy it would definatly come to mac, mac is one of the suporters of blu-ray and i also seen on a mac magazine that one laptop would come out with blu-ray and final cut pro HD.
...to see what happens with this whole thing. Then again, I don't see the point in paying that much money to watch a movie in HD. I plan on waiting until I can get a HD-DVD player or BluRay (whoever wins) for around $200.
its not going to be mainstream at that price.
if you were intelligent you would know that at the beginning the price is always high ! i can remember times where cd-writer costed 5000 bucks.
The first set of VHS players cost around $800 when they first hit the market.
yes, so at this price, it won't be mainstream. when it gets lower, it will.
This is not proving your point, but common sense.
