Same product was available in Currys/pc world for £379.99 and at argos at £399.99.

But the ones in curry/pc world- now out of stock. This will go quick.

But if you wait, in 2009 you will have even better and cheaper.

It has 1gb more RAM, 90gb extra hard drive space and a 2.0ghz dual core.

What you guys reckon? Think this was posted up on HUKD a coupl of weeks ago at £450 but has now gone down to £430

Im a bit put off by the anthlon processer in that one though, rather have the pentium plu the vaio name. The extra 1gb of RAM is pretty useless as vista cant even use it!

No-one should be put off buying a laptop with 1GB of RAM, even with Vista installed. I've used many laptops with Vista & 1GB RAM and they run perfectly fine for everyday applications (i.e. browsing the web, office work, etc...) If you find that it slows down when running hungry applications (i.e. games, video editing) it's VERY easy & cheap to upgrade.

It annoys me when people say 1GB isn't enough for Vista. It is, as I've witnessed first hand several times that it is. That's why so many manufacturers ship laptops with 1GB.

Nope, dual core is the main boost to Vista, not speed.

Yes it can! You may be getting mixed up with having 4Gb installed on Vista 32 Bit or Xp whereby it can't 'see' the full 4Gb.

great price,

At the low end that these 2 laptops are at, there really isn't much difference in performance between the 2 processors, the Pentium Dual Core and the Athlon X2 quoted are pretty much equal. If you want to use the extra gig, just install Vista X64 or XP X64 and no, there is nothing wrong with the X64 versions of Windows.

I am a little baffled by your post. The deal is for a laptop with 2GB and no-one seems to have mentioned anything about 1GB being limiting.

Personally, my own experience with Vista (Home Premium) is at odds with yours. I found that when using shared memory for graphics (which most laptops do), 1GB became limiting if you wanted to have multiple "everyday applications" running simultaneously. Maybe I am just impatient when using a computer...

As for the deal, looks a pretty decent price for a Sony.

so 1gb is no good for people who like to install and use programs then

I bought this laptop at commet a couple of weeks ago and I loved it. 8 days after buying it it developed a fault.
I phoned sony who diagnosed that the back light had gone on it.the wanted it back for repair. Itook it back to the shop who said they were sorry but it had to go back to sony.could not have money back or new laptop. One of the assistants in the shop said he would never buy a cheap sony. A week later after the shop said it was now alright and had been repaired I refused the laptop and eventually got a refund. Would not have another sony, not because I thought the laptop rubbish but because of the way sony treated me.

Really? And I have witnessed first hand how slow it is! if waiting for your apps to load is perfectly fine then you carry on. Everyone with more than 1gig ram take the Ram down to 1gig and see the difference! The way Vista works is that it utilises the Ram before its needed so if you need it for something different it has to release the Ram and then process the App. I have 2gig in mine and vista on its own uses 970mb ish. You can never have enough RAM and with it being so cheap nowadays just throw as much at it as it can handle!
