I have a Sony VAIO SR Series that I love but it's getting quite long in the tooth and I'm looking to replace it. The problem is that I can't seem to find anything similar anymore so I was hoping someone here could help.
It's a 13.3" laptop with a 1280x800 LED screen. I'd really like to stick with that size (13.3") and I would prefer to stick with the 16:10 aspect ratio but I'm flexible there. 1280x800 is acceptable but 1920x1200 would be ideal (I don't really have any desire for anything higher than that). I do NOT want a 15" or larger laptop nor do I want some tiny 10" device.
It has a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 video card and I'd like to keep a discrete card and not go integrated but of course the faster the GPU the better.
It has a Blu-Ray optical drive and HDMI out and this is essential as one of its main uses is as a portable Blu-Ray player while on travel. I have no interest at all in burning discs on the laptop but I need the ability to play Blu-Ray movies (on planes, etc.) and HDMI to connect to TVs in hotels and such.
I have ZERO desire for a touchscreen. If it has it and I can ignore it that's fine but I certainly don't want to pay more to get it.
I can't seem to find any 13.3" laptops at all with dedicated graphics and an optical drive anymore.
