dun buy acer, get HP, Dell, Toshiba or Fujitsu. Dell's customer support is very good in my opinion. HP's laptops perform well and looks good.

The VAIOs are cool, but its a little bit expensive compared to other brands with similar specs.

Not much of a difference, in my opinion.

You have to scrutinise the specifications of the VAIOs......

At surface level, they may seem expensive.

But, at around 5k, you can get something like:
1.66GHz Core 2 Duo
GeForce dedicated graphics card
1GB RAM (And the configuration is 1 piece of 1G RAM, which uses one of 2 of the available slots. Other laptops such as HP, Dell, etc. normally give you 2 512KB RAM pieces, and uses up both slots)
Lightweight (13.3" screens if I'm not wrong)
And the coolness factor

So, probably you might wanna consider the VAIOs....To find other brands with such specifications will cost you almost 5k as well.

If you are loaded with $$ , then go for

1st : Toshiba
2nd : Lenovo
3rd : Vaio
4th : MacBook

If you are on a tight budget :

1st : Acer
2nd : Dell !!
3rd : Twinstar - If you are really really on a tight budget !! I mean EXTREME !!

Yo! I'll be buying a laptop soon. Might be buying acer because it seem to be more worth it. But there is a laptop that attracts me a lot.Its SONY VAIO....emm nt sure of the model cos i'm nt really into electronic gadgets. Bt what attracts me is its weight, only 1.8kg. very light, bt very costly its nearly RM 6000, bt its other functions are exactly the same compared to the RM 3888 Acer. its a vast different. So what say u?
