This from Yahoo news June 13th:
http://news.yahoo.com/s/nf/20060613/tc_nf/43878
Sony's $3,500 Vaio AR laptop arrives months after rival Toshiba began selling HD DVD players and portable PCs with HD DVD drives built in, although any advantage for Toshiba might end up being short-lived, analysts say.

The 17-inch Vaio AR has a Blu-ray drive, is powered by Intel's Core Duo processor, and has 1 GB of memory and a 17-inch screen.

The first Blu-ray movies, set for a June 20 release, include "50 First Dates," "The Fifth Element," "House of Flying Daggers," and "The Terminator." More titles are expected in the coming weeks.

Most experts watching the battle over next-generation DVD give the edge to Blu-ray players because of support from the film industry and the inclusion of Blu-ray in the forthcoming PlayStation 3 game console.

Despite earlier plans to deliver HD DVD hardware last year, Toshiba's $500 HD-A1 and $800 HD-XA1 players, along with an HD DVD-enabled laptop, arrived in April.
