Default i7 Sony vs. Macbook Pro

The answer might be staring at me right in the face, nevertheless, i require input. PLZZZ! and thank you :]

Macbook Pro
Apple MacBook Pro 13.3" Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz Laptop - English - Best Buy Exclusive : Apple iMac - Best Buy Canada

VS.

Sony VAIO
Sony VAIO 16.4" Intel Core i7 740QM Quad-Core Laptop (VPCF132FDB) - Black : 16" Laptops - Future Shop


If you only had these two options to choose from, consider all pros and cons for both models, including the price, and pick ONE. Although suggestions for alternative models are welcome, i'd appreciate that you'd still pick one of the two mentioned above.
THANK YOUUU, this will really help ;]

The Sony VAIO.

Bigger screen, better processor, bigger hard drive, BluRay, HDMI...

A no brainer.

Do you plan on taking the laptop with you places? If you do, skip the 16.4" Sony. I have an older model the same size and it sucks taking the thing anywhere. The Macbook Pro also has an IPS panel monitor. When calibrated, they are better at displaying correct colors and have wider viewing angles.

yesss, the IPS panel, there's definitely that.

if only the Mac came with Blu-Ray and HDMI, i'd be happy ...

...i say HDMI since it's cheaper than the Mac alternative.
