whats your budget?... decide that than hunt a bit more

the new vaios are nice but theres other laptops you should look at... I wouldnt even look at acer as an option but thats me... :P

as a quick note I wouldnt go above 3.0 pentium M unless you wanna buy 2 batteries at LEAST... even then most battery times you see will probably be inaccurate, dont expect more than 2 hours for a 3.0 pentium M and above... might even be more around 60 to 90 mins... theres a chance youll get more tho... batteries are getting pretty powerful but the pentium M is still a power monster... the price difference between a 2.8, 3.0 and everything above really isnt justitified by performance... so if you wanna save a bit you might even look at the 2.8s if you can find one with an 800 fsb

Id also get a mobile radeon 9700 or mobile geforce fx 5700... the performance difference between those and the mobile radeon 9200 series is worth it Id say... for your gfx card 128 mb ram is an awesome add on... might even find a decently priced 256 mb ram model

if you really want a laptop I will definitely say look at TOSHIBA... :D ... those guys make some awesome laptops... http://www.toshibadirect.com

or try velocity micro... http://www.velocitymicro.com

for some decently priced custom laptops you should check out hypersonic... http://www.hypersonic-pc.com ... they make some spiffy systems

a nice company to check out is morel pc... their site looks rather lame but their prices are great... http://www.morelpc.com

it all depends on your budget and what youre gonna use it for... dont worry about having the fastest laptop in the crowd... thats always pointless... stuff will go pseudo obsolete within a few months... if youre gonna be spending a bunch of money of course get what you want not just what you need but be mindful of everything...

these are just my opinions... wouldnt wanna see you get ripped off tho
