Help Me Choose a Sony Vaio

  richdeniro 22:34 28 Mar 2008

In need of a new laptop and am looking at Sony Vaio's.

Would have up to £1,000 to spend as long as I could do it on 0% finance over 9 or 12 months.

Not too sure of specs, guess I would be looking for a minimum 15.4" in size, 2GB of RAM and 150GB hard disk.

Any ideas?

Support may not be the best: click here, click here & click here - but may be isolated incidents? G

we have a sony laptop.

verdict the laptop itself is excellent. but support is dreadful, you do not get the OEM disk and have to make your own recovery disc from a sony program. these are apparently ok for a reinstall but read problems with them if you replace the hardddrive.
