Much of the attention in the digital entertainment arena has been on devices that you hold or hang on the wall. Sony's new Vaio VGN-A49GP notebook puts the spotlight back on the personal computer as the hub from which digital content from various sources is created, distributed, managed and enjoyed. The Vaio is based on Intel's Centrino technology, which includes a 2.13-gigahertz Pentium M processor 770 and Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG network connection. The notebook, which costs $26,980, features a 17-inch liquid crystal display for entertainment on the road. The notebook comes with an Audio Port Replicator, S-Master digital amplifier and a pair of two-way bass reflex external stereo speakers, all of which help transform it into a multimedia entertainment platform at home or in the office.
