You said "I can always add RAM later". But aren't they all 512? Are you just saying the Sony is very good, and can always just "supercharge" it later?
The Vaios seem to have a good reputation, I haven't heard any bad things about them. They are going to be premium priced because they are Sonys. Seems to be no problems with them, and Sony is a reputable brand.
Yes they are all 512, I was saying that the Sony is good, and yes, you can "supercharge" it later. If you're going to be running a lot of applications you'll want to get a gig of RAM. So by me saying that you can always add RAM later, you have to be thinking of the future and what you're exactly going to be using this laptop for.
hp is really a good brand, i would also suggest dell even though you dont have it on ur list since they make great laptops
HP isn't a "really good brand" HP is crap. Their laptops are decent, but aren't "really good."
Dell laptops are also decent. I've heard of some problems with battery life, but have also heard that they have good battery life. You may want to check out some Dell laptops.
