Anything but that Vaio, that was way too much money for what you get.

Did you actually buy that one from amazon or did you get it somewhere cheaper because according to that link the Price: $949.75. If that is the case you can get a far better laptop than that for that price...its only 1.4ghz intel core 2 duo and 1gb of ram. Yeah its expandable to 4 but why not get one for that price that's not going to need to be upgraded as soon as you get it? You could get a dell laptop with the same specs as that for less than half that price...Take a look at the vostro models of dell if you are looking for a business laptop IMO...Cheap, good support, and same specs as that Vaio....

I got it elsewhere for $550.00. I don't want a netbook. Most of the ones listed above are far more than $500.

This isn't a good deal at all. Overpriced underclocked. Get a dell.
