    I've always just seen Sony vaio's as toys. Get a Thinkpad for same price and an awesome spec. Check them out on pc world business (pcwb).

    I'm pretty sure that is Sony Vaio E series. It's pretty good from what I've seen on the customisable options on sonystyle.co.uk and seems very cheap for what you get imo.

    What would the better specs be in? I'm not that good with computers, but I thought the 500GB memory and 4GB RAM are pretty good...

    Check out http://www.dmxdimension.com for some dell deals. You can usually get 5-10% off the quoted price, and an additional 6-10% if you are student by going through the dell student web page.

    For an idea of which graphics card/processor are better use the following as a rough guide.

    http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-...ist.844.0.html

    The main factors affecting price are graphics card and processors. Hard drive make near no difference, unless it is a solid state drive (google about it). You should get 4gb and you don't really need more than that. Make sure the Windows is 64 bit.

    This forum is good to see what people have to say about laptops. You will find pretty much something said about every laptop.
