Post 3+ Months Ago

I am in the process of finding a new laptop. I currently have a Sony Vaio and it has served me well over the last 3-4 years and so have decided to stick with them for now.

This is the model I have been looking at so far -


Intel® Centrino®2 Processor Technology, Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor P8600 (2.40 GHz),

Mobile Intel PM45 Express Chipset, Intel WiFi Link 5100

Processor system bus 1066 MHz

Memory bus 800 MHz

Cache memory 3 MB

Main memory 3 GB DDR2 SDRAM (upgradeable up to 4 GB), 2 SO-DIMM slots (The pre-installed memory module uses two)

Hard disk 320 GB (Serial ATA, 5400 rpm)

Graphics accelerator NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS notebook graphics processing unit (GPU)
Total available graphics memory (max) 256 MB Dedicated Video Memory

Display 14.1 wide (WXGA:1280 x 800) TFT Colour display (Clear Bright LCD Lite)

Is this any good/worth the NZ $2.5k - As its better than the one i have now i'm expecting it to be able to handle photoshop/premier elements ect just fine + (Sims 3?) But i also want something a bit flashy (hence going for the one with touch sensors and pretty lights :) )

Haven't been able to find any user reviews online.

Another question I have is will this be able to be up graded to Windows 7 with no problems? Or am I better to just wait and see what laptops in this range get released with 7 already loaded?

thanks for your help!

Work in retail and have not seen any returns or complaints about
this Sony Vaio,

Windows 7 upgrade sticker should be on this unit. Suggest you pay for
the distribution media to be sent with release which is scheduled for October.
