- "Sony announced Tuesday at the Ceatec show in Tokyo the addition of Blu-ray Disc to more PCs in its Vaio line. The Vaio Type-R master is an Intel Core 2 Duo-based machine loaded with high-definition editing and authoring software. With the new computers, Blu-ray Disc is now available in four of Sony's Vaio product lines. The systems will be available from Oct. 28 at prices between $1,952 and $4,664 depending on system configuration. A Blu-ray Disc drive will also be offered as a build-to-order option with Sony's Type-L computer. Sony also will launch a pair of Blu-ray Disc video recorders in Japan this December, the company said Tuesday. The machines both feature hard-disk drives for day-to-day recording and a Blu-ray Disc drive for longer term storage. The BDZ-V9 has a 500GB drive and the BDZ-V7 has a 250GB drive. There are two digital tuners in each recorder so that two high-definition programs can be recorded simultaneously. "
