Very nice but with out core 2 duo cpu and non intergated graphics card I won't touch it.

Despite the fact is is fairly cheap there is still a sony premium on this, any other brand (excluding apple) and you could get this for £50-£100 less. Infact I I paid 600 for a dell of similat spec 11 months ago.

why not?:p
is dual cpu tech really that important for most people? :roll:

I would say that 99% of people use laptops 99% of the time to
browse the web
watch videos/dvds/movies
do some word/excel/PowerPoint

and that doesn’t even tax 10% of a single modern cpu.

The only people that need the highest tech are gamers (which laptops are not good at anyways). Those that do a LOT of video/image manipulation. Programmers. ect

Everyone else will not notice the difference between a "fast processor" or a "slow" processor. your money is much better spent on a better screen, more ram, smaller laptop, extra battery, ect :thumbsup:

All that being said, im currently typing this on a computer that has a 8800GTX. e6300 @ 3GHZ. 2gig ram. Guess how much of this computer is being used right now? less than 1%. Get my point?

I totally agree, u can get the same spec laptop from a different mfr (namely Toshiba or HP/Compaq) for 10-15% less than the Sony VAIO.

Acer is pretty good and don't forget Dell or Mesh

btw, it is false to assume games take up much of the cpu power, a smart gamer would know to go for a laptop that has a Open GL support graphic card with at least 128mb of RAM, this means the VGA card does the graphic acceleration and letting the CPU process instructions.

If u try putting the full suite of Norton Security software and you will find that soon enough ur CPU will start to process tasks at a snail's pace.

Micro Processor: Intel Core Duo T2050 Processor 1.6GHz

I bought 2 of these @ christmas for £560 (bought the Mrs one and liked it so much bought myself one) and recomended it to 2 friends who bought them (one got it for £550, other purchased his at £650 from a high street store). None of us have had any problems and they are great machines.

Only complaint I have is it doesnt have a full sized PCMCIA card slot (uses new express card).

I have got a few high def movies using coreavc codec - all play seemlessly even at 1080p (despite display not being able to show 1080p in all its glory).

And you may be paying £50-£100 extra for sony brand, but I've never had any laptop more reliable than a Vaio, I still have my original 800mhz vaio I bought 6 years ago working fine and in the same time I've had numerous unbranded & lower branded laptops die on me.

Well, as most computer components tend to fail in the first two weeks and the person your post is aimed at has bought two and his friends have bought two as well and they have no problems then it could be identifed as pretty impressive :p

Have to agree Viaos are very reliable in my experience, probably on a par with HP.

That is definetly a good price imo.

Comes with loads of software, so you'll probably spend half an hour removing what you dont need :P

EDIT: Also Sonys X Black screens are probably the best on the market! I love mine.
#14
the screens are brilliant but in the 1st year of my vaios warranty they had to replace the optical drive 3 times!

The Intel Core Duo is a dual core processor, Core 2 Duo is a revised and improved model. Dual core would be top of my check list today but I wouldn't rule out the older Core Duo because I'd probably never even push that close to it's limits in a laptop. Here's more information on the difference.

Sony's goods are always at a premium but in this case the X-Black screen makes it worth it. No idea on reliability, I think it's fairer to say it's more down to each model, a bad batch perhaps, with a general trend of some manufactures having tighter quality control than others.

Basically more people will benefit from a dual core latop than they would a dual core desktop to be honest.

Let's just say you are wanting to save a massive amount of files to a memory stick, maybe burn off some data onto a cd/dvd but also not miss out on valuable work time on that word document or spreadsheet. Then that is when the dual core comes into it's own. A dual core is perfect for any business user.

Also as stated above, gaming is not an issue whether you have single or dual core, it will be come the end of the year but at the moment the diffrence is marginal. Dual core is used for multi-tasking which is is what a lot of business people/students do, which is where the majority of the laptop market is.

I have had one of these for 2 years or more and it works sweet, got it because the screens are so much clearer and brighter than other laptops.
Saying that i have just recently got a "sticky K" it keeps printing it and going ape. How can you stop this, the Doctor says he cant help with a "sticky K" wouldnt nowhere to start he said. haha:w00t:
