Default Buying new comp

What do you guys think about sony vaios?
I wanna get a new computer pretty soon, and frankly I do not know much about hardware lol.
I got my eye on the Sony RC310G right now
in my eyes its good all around

Hah, I was going to link to the Sony website with specs, but I guess they stopped selling this model online so heres a link from
cnet spec page and Jr.com spec page

good buy or bad buy

What would you do if someone gave you a Ferrari?

Well i would drive it for a month and then sell it... the difference would be that hotties would flock to you with a Ferrari, lol.

I thought Pentium D was two P4's stuck together... maximum I would pay for a Pentium D system is $600.
