Pretty average; for your money, you could do a lot worse, but don't expect to be wowed.
When crying don't help
You can't compose yourself
It's best to compose a poem
An honest verse of longing
Or a simple song of hope...

Save up for a mac (even though vaios are excellent PC's)... Mine new macbook is coming in the mail tomorrow.

PC users are mainly cheap and are afraid of paying the extra penny for a better OS and overall computer, but trust me, you'll become addicted to macs... I have 3!

okay adrian, you drive a hard bargain, but for pc's I reccommend the HP Pavilion TX2000, It has great specs, and it's my 2nd to last laptop. Hence, it may not have Mac OS X Leopard on it, but it does have a touch screen, and I sometimes take it to class if I'm doing a presentation or something... It's price has dropped rather well also...

HP's have great bang for the buck, good memory, battery life, but they in many cases lack processors. The HP Pavilion TX2000 has an AMD Turion (< intel). They burn up fast and smack...

I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH!!!! MACS ARE THE WAY TO GO!! THEY ANNIHILATE PC'S!!

Q: which computer has a better start up time?
A: in less than 10 seconds, apple has their computers up and running without freezing

Q: which computer can you keep on forever without it overheating?
A: why apple can because their circuitry is soo efficient, thus resulting in an excellent battery life...

Q: which computer has a better battery life?
A: well apple has that, without a huge bump sticking out the back, like most pc's with 5 + hours

Q: which computer is more versatile?
A: well pc's may seem more versatile, but now with ilife '08, mac's can run windows, and or linux... so macs are more versatile ftw...

Q: which computer sucks?
A: well you got me beat there, i have to give that to pc's.

Well i guess mac's can't have it all, but they are better ftw...

Ok guys, enough with the with the mac v pc shit. This gut wants a PC Laptop for €700. Personally the only that the Vaio's have got going for them are their amazing screens, apart from that you can get more for your money from Dell.

http://www1.euro.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/laptop_studio_15?c=es&cs=esdhs1&l=es&s=dhs

Have a look at those on Dell Espania! they all should be in our price range.

PS to shut up all the mac fan boys - read this http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=macs_cant

so the brand is not important already? I have say a vaio becouse one friend have said to me that good brands laptops are better mounted and got better performance (the vaio) than a Hp or dell... so im confused :S:S

macs can dual boot and run windows for your windows based products. also when vista first came out (not sure if this is still true) but macs ran vista better then pc's. they're able to run windows in its native speed, theres no difference then any other laptop except its a mac, and its better :P. im on mine now and its amazing i'll never go back

So you really think that the circuitry is different between a mac and a pc? Wow...

Mac's have better battery life because they run WAY slower when you're on the battery. If you put the same performance preferences for battery and powered, you'll see that you have about the same battery life on a mac and pc.

Anyway, back on topic, I'd recommend HP. They have great computers for the price.

That Sony Vaio has pretty good specs and is cheaper than the equivalent Dell apart from the Dell has a very slightly better graphics card.

You can't really change the video card in a laptop (well you can but you have to change the whole motherboard...).

It can't really be noticed if you're just using regular apps (MSN, Firefox, things like that). It shows when you use Photoshop or more demanding programs.

the HP isnt avalable in spain :S:S

ah sorry there really good for the price. Vaios are good, just sony is a little more expensive.

And everybody SHUT UP about Macs, he obviously doesn't want one of those. You can get a computer with the same specs for 500 dollars less.
grok it.

SKREAM!

Listen to jazz, it's good for you...
