Looking for something thin and light. I dont care about gaming, but I like some power since I like to open a bazillion programs at once. I purchased the display model at my local store for $1300: http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Sony...34808/catOid/-12963/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do I also get the $150 mail in rebate on top of that. I was originally looking towards an HP DV1420US, but this sony appealed to me because it had a better processor and slightly higher resolution display. A few things I discovered later after buying it: SATA, 5400 rpm hd DDR2 Ram Ram is a single 512mb chip, not 2 256 modules This should come out to $1250 w/tax and after MIR. Just wondering if I could have done better. This is an open box model, so I can return it within 14 days and not be charged restocking.
