Sony is overpriced for sub par components, in addition to spamming the entire hard drive with bloatware right out of the factory.

Its not like THAT.  Trust me, I never call people out for grammar or spelling crap. 

That one comma actually rendered the entire sentence unreadable though.  I've never seen that before.

Don't go the HP way. I got my sister one last year and we've had nothing but problems like what the guys said. Overheating, turning off by itself..etc.

For $600 or so you can get an i3 processor with 4gb ram and 320 hard drive
For $900 you can get i5 processor with a blu-ray player

Of course there are better specs but this is off the top of my head when I compared laptops at Best Buy, Officemax and Office Depot last week

I don't know where you shop but Best Buy sells the Blue Label laptops for $800 and $900 they have the built it Netgear wireless display and I believe they include the box that hooks up to the tv

Asus looks generally trash to me. I tried to go for their ultra thin line but they stiff u on processor power. Every laptop manufacturer will have a line that has its set of issues...even mac. With that said, i was lookin to get a mac because for less than half an inch u can get a beefy core 2 duo with a optical drive and 4gb of ram...and its prolly the most stylish notebook out. HOWEVER its like 1.4k which is a lot...

I am waiting on this to be shipped.


Specs:
W7
4GB ram
250gb HDD
intel HD graphics (im not gonna game on my comp so its w.e)

last but not least....
Intel Core i5 2.26 GHz with turbo boost to 2.53GHz


TOTAL COST: $847 shipped. Hardware wise thats a better deal than current macs.

Was in the same spot you were in last month. Ended up buying a Dell Inspiron (3gb RAM, 250gb HDD)... good enough for just daily use.  I'm completely happy so far.

I was warned by my boy and his wife who owned HP's. Both overheated and died on them after only a year of ownership. I was like !!@! that... I ain't even gonna look at them HP's.



Good luck in your search.
