Default Choosing Laptops >_>

I hope I'm not posting in the wrong room, because the majority here are talking about Desktop PCs.

I feel kind of lazy, so I'm asking for help because I don't know how the processors are for laptops, which is more recent, etc, and the other factors I'd have to consider when purchasing a laptop.

I mean I'll do some research and get some info from Cnet but I'm just posting here so when I come back I'd of found some good suggestions.

If it's not too much, can someone choose a good laptop for me around 1K, preferably a Sony?

Well it isn't mine, I'm actually more worried about the speakers installed, I don't want something too bad.

My mom's friend wants to use it to edit her piano music sheets, with softwares like Finale, so commendable clarity is something I want from the audio system.

Other than that, it's basically a normal standard laptop meant for regular usage.

Well, for audio, you can easily use a set of external speakers, or a good set of headphones. Pretty much all laptops have very small speakers that break up at low volumes, and have ZERO bass response.
