Soooo, I have a laptop. A Sony Vaio PCG-FRV25. It's a nice laptop, but I have a couple things I don't like about it:
1) It's really big and heavy - not too great for carrying around.
2) It doesn't have built-in wireless.
3) I've been having all sorts of overheating problems with it for a long time. I think this is because of a number of things - mainly A) it has a Pentium 4 instead of a mobile type processor and B) it has an ATI graphics card.
4) The battery only lasts like an hour with minimal processor load (again, probably because it is a Pentium 4 with the graphics card).
These are my main issues with it. So, to get to the point of this thread, I need a laptop that is small and light with fairly fast processing power DESIGNED FOR A LAPTOP, AT LEAST 512MB of RAM, AT LEAST a 60GB hard drive and built-in wireless - all for less than around $800. I would prefer the Sony brand, but I am flexible with that considering the Sony name is worth about $100 by itself.
Also, I don't need gaming graphics. I rarely play PC games anymore, so that won't be a problem. I still want to be able to work in a 1024x768 resolution environment with very good detail, but when it comes to intensive graphical processing - I don't need it.
My main concern is getting one that doesn't overheat, though. I could deal with most of the above issues if it weren't for this guy running it's exhaust fan at full power and shutting down occassionally. So, let me know what you guys think!
P.S. Sorry for such a long post.
