I would go with the HP Pavilion. I say this because of the added security features (fingerprint scanner & LoJack). Vaio's (from what I've heard several times over) have terrible battery life. I have owned an HP and the battery life was pretty good. Plus, you get the Windows Recovery DVD with the HP.

The LoJack and Recovery DVD isn't free for the HP which the offer, but Sony doesn't offer it or the fingerprint scanner so probbably the HP would be better.

Edit - What is LoJack's "geotechnology" if the computer only allows a fingerprint login but they want to hook it up to a wireless connection wouldn't the fingerprint make LoJack useless?
