      get one of the new ones out there

      Ah, I'd be very surprised if a new one of these is still being sold on the market but for those of you looking for a second hand laptop read on for this 2005 model.

      I think Sony are generally much better than the dell, hp etc bunch however they are much more expensive. However, the biggest advantage Sony Vaio laptops have over most other laptops are their excellent screens which are magnitudes brighter and more vivid than the lacklustre generic technology screens of HP, Toshiba etc. I still cannot get used to the dramatically disappointing screens of the latest generations of non-sony laptops and netbooks compared to my 5 year old laptop.

      The laptop also excels in the looks department with a grey and black combination finish which looks quite cool. Tapping the trackpad registers as a mouse click which I thought was standard until I played with a macbook.

      The keypad is very very flimsy, yes I've been using it for a long while now but 3 keys are not functioning anymore forcing me to remap my keyboard... I think all sony vaio laptops have poorly designed keypads.

      Also the other major criticism for sony laptops are their 3.5 mm jack connections which don't last very long at all forcing you to often fidget with them.

      I have upgraded the memory to 2 gb ram which makes performance much better. If you're buying this second hand and want to install windows 7 on it, DON'T! The bios for the this model is old and not compatible with windows 7. I found it out the hard way, once I installed windows 7 I lost my hard drive within a couple of days, didn't think it was an OS fault so bought a new hard drive and installed Win 7 again - lo! another dead drive in days.so be warned.

      And last, battery life is pretty dismal. Didnt last even 2 hours when bought new.
