Heh, RE-Amemiya, yes I agree when it comes to high-end performance Alienware, Dell or Voodoo will rule the party, BUT LOOK AT THEM! What do you feel after looking at SONY VAIO AR? As for me I can't stand that unattractive if not to say harder, in my opinion, design ever created by Alienware and Dell. And turn back to AR - what do you see? You see a high quality sleek and stunning design notebook finished in magnesium alloy, combining normal weight, decent performance and incredibly amazing screen with a tonn of multimedia functions EVEN first ever for SONY optical S/PDIF out (I was missing it all the time, cause I usually connect my notebook to Hi-Fi A\V Reciever). Do you see a difference guys? You will be happy to communicate and entertain with such cool notebook pc. I think it's the first cool SONY's desktop replacement, and I think we can include it to the Gamer's Grade category as GeForce Go 7600GT shows the same results as last year leader GF Go 6800. Let it be entry level Gamer's notebook
For me it was always a problem to choose between one class of notebooks and another. From one side I just LOVE high portability which not sacrificing the performance - say S series or now it's SZ, but from the other side I was always dreaming about High Performance Gaming machine not an ugly heavy brick but some powerful VAIO with super design. And now I think we have such powerful VAIO - AR. it's very difficult to make a choice between both - SZ and AR. And I think real SONY fans should have both
So, I think we should wait till the notebook comes to the shops all over the world to see it and to make the right choice and I hope it will be real Japanes made notebook like SZ or TX.
While we don't have real performance tests, I'll try to use some maths and my calculating capabilities to see theoretical pre-results of performance of upcoming GeForce Go 7600GT just to see what to expect for as I've already done with Go 7400 and VAIO SZ in theme called "GeForce Go 7400 - Mobile Graphics Revolution?" and I was right
I'll publish the results as soon as I finish calculating!
