    How much does that mac weigh though?

    I have an older version of this Sony and the small size is why I have it. Its so small people actually think its a portable DVD player instead of a PC.

    If you get that Sony, make sure you can get all the drivers off the web site first so you can blow out the factory partitions and pre-loaded shit.

    The solid state drives add too much money right now.

    Regular hard drives perform just as good, and have larger capacity.

    Although they do give better battery life.

    I know, that's what I do on my Dell 2407.

    But you have to adjust it on everything you do ftl.

    But it would be :cool: to watch hd videos on a laptop.

    Really? Are you running Vista? I found XP screwed everything up if you varied from the default DPI but Vista seems to handle it much better and more seamlessly.

    No, just XP.

    I adjust the font in notepad and wordpad, although with wordpad I have to do it every time I open up a new document.

    Then I change the accesibility settings in internet options so that the web text is larger.
    And I do the same with firefox. Once in a while some text is still small, but I don't feel like messing with every single setting in Display>Appearance.

    The only bad thing about higer resolutions, is that they make some movies look too grainy.

    Not a fan of the way that keyboard looks on the Sony.

    Sexier? Perhaps not. Much more durable, dependable, and innovative? Hell yes.

    All those laptops would be great if they would just put a balltrack mouse in them.
