Default Need new laptop for graphic design

Hey guys,
I have a cousin who needs a new laptop for graphic design. She needs something really fast where she can run a lot of applications at the same time. And a the biggest hard drive available for laptop hd, since she's a photographer.
She uses Photoshop, illustrator...etc.

Her price range is around $2000-2500, she also wants a good warranty with that.

So im guessing a core2duo with atleast 2 gb ram and atleast 160gb hd or more.

She said she has the money, but she just wants the best right now, something that wont slow her work down. Nothing bigger than 15".

Thanks

Sony Vaio is very good and she will definitely appreciate the high quality screen s that they use. Easily much brighter and more crisp than the average laptop.

ah too bad on the macs. vaio's are nice and the screen is fantastic, although the res is rather low for a 15.4" screen (1200 by 800)

but IMO vaio's are overpriced. how about the new dell 1330?

could you guys give me links to check out.She has given me a pretty decent price range. She wants to have to slow downs and a good graphic card to handle her stuff.
