    Im a massive fan of the Sony vaio range and would recommend them to anyone, of course you have to get rid of the bloated software that Sony fill their machines with but after that is gone i cant find a better machine.

    I go for the deluxe models however ! haven't had the cheaper range before but i wouldn't think they would be that much different ?

    Well I have always been prefering Dell and I will always prefer Dell in the near future. I have got a Dell Laptop and I can tell you that I have never had a problem with it. Dell Laptops are the most reliable. Other laptops just break down in an year or two. I have been using Dell laptops for the past 3 years and I have never got a problem with it.

    I don't like paying for overpriced brands. Dell is really over priced. I use a Toshiba laptop, it's only 3 months old now. It works just as good as any other.

    Well I can tell you that it's working fine with you for now because it has been only 3 months. After an year or so, it will break down.

    Lol. I've never had laptops break down... I'm not saying the possibility isn't there. They only break down if you don't get a decent cooling station. Heat is a laptops worst enemy. Plus I rarely use it. Like once a week, so if it did break down it would really suck. I build my own home computers, and all laptops are pretty much the same... I've built a laptop before, it's just too much of a hassle to do it these days.

    I have never really been too much into laptops really but would love a big juicy Apple Mac one.

    The worst thing with the laptops is that if you keep it on bedsheet or a cloth and play on it for long time then it will get pretty much hot. :(

    lucky it wasn't there longer! You would think after spending ages developing smaller laptops, somebody would think to put a fan in the adaptor!!

    Yea I prefer desktops also. I only bought the laptop for work and traveling. Those new micro laptops are ridiculous in my opinion. Well at least for people with big hands like me, lol.

    I myself don't mind looking down at a screen. Those screens are just too bloody small! LOL The iPhone has the nicest small screen I've ever seen though.
