I'm going to be buying a new laptop soon and can't choose which to go for! I was originally going to get a MacBook but am a couldn't go without Windows. I could just imagine myself hating it after a while, despite their sexyness. Still, works out cheaper anyway! I want something, small and leightweight that looks good and is quite cheap. I don't do much apart from browse the internet, sync my iPod (i.e. store music), watch films and do the odd bit of homework. So, here's the two that I can't decide upon. The Sony is smaller and weighs less, which I like. But, it's slightly thicker and comes with XP instead of Vista. I could just about live with that, but would prefer Vista. It also has more storage than the other one, but less memory but that isn't too much of an issue - the stuff I want it for isn't demanding at all. Bearing in mind I also have more faith in Sony as a brand over Advent. The Advent is slightly larger, but almost half the thickness which is nice. I like the 'fingerpring protection feature' and the fact that it has Vista but this all comes with a more expensive price tag. http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/store/ ... oid=-35074 http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/store/ ... oid=-27757 So, opinions? Thoughts? Advice? I know there's quite a few teccy guys on here, what do you think?
