Re: What to buy....
I had a Sony Viao and it was a great little machine. Work gave me a Thinkpad...this thing is really great! A little bit thicker than most laptops but quite powerful and some nice/handy features as well. Use it for traveling and have a docking station at work with a nice widescreen and bluetooth mouse/keyboard.
HP makes a good laptop as well.
