    I would like to buy Sony VAIO AW Series with LED back-light but reviewing Sony web page about those 18.4” Laptops I got confused. How I supposed to know that I am buying Laptop with LED back-light. Sony offers many configurations of 18.4” Laptops but nobody in Sony know which configuration is with standard back-light and which configuration is with LED back-light.

    I got information from other sources that Sony will sell mention above Laptops with LED back-light and with standard back-light. I will appreciate any clarification about that.
