    Dell Pros: Larger+Faster HD, better battery life
    Dell Cons: Slower vid card, smaller screen
    Sony Pros: Larger screen, Better video card
    Sony Cons: Smaller HD, sucky battery life, reliability? (ive heard about vaios breaking)

    Im a big sucker for good screens and graphics cards. I have a dell E1505 now, but i kinda wanna venture away from dell...but what do i pick AS IS? the difference in price is nominal.
