Dubbed the ‘Super Notebook’ by Sony, the Vaio AW series is loaded with all the goodies to negate a desktop purchase.  There’s two models, the AW170Y/Q ($3,300) and AW120J/H ($1,800), and expect them to ship 10/2. Both models sport a Blu-ray burner, 18.4-inch LCD with LED backlight, 4GB of RAM and Nvidia graphics support.  Back breakers they are, weighing in at over 8lbs.
