Sony is expanding its range of Vaio Digital Studio desktop PCs next month.

The releases will be equipped with DVD and CD-RW systems. The move mimics Apple's recent announcement that CD-RW and DVD drives will be shipping with new top-of-the-range Power Macs.

The systems will also ship with graphics and video-editing software similar to Apple's iMovie 2.0.

New-Vaio prices are unavailable until their release. The existing Vaios – the 807, 808 and 809 – cost £1,702, £2,348 and £2,799 respectively.

The PowerBook range starts at £1,339, with the PowerBook G3.
