ehhh i can ...... i can even run 3ds max, lightwave and play music at the same time with no issue
actualy i bet that any laptop running 4 dedicated core faster then 1.6 or 2 dedicated and HT at 2.6 and have a decent GPU should have no issue doing so
the standar atm is 4GB in 2 stick (2x2GB) higher then that in a laptop and you will have to trade in part of you'r anatomy to buy it the price is around 335$ for a decent 4gb stick
and 4GB is well enough i've tryed to overload my 4GB to get an excuse to upgrade to 8GB but i haven't suceeded
some of the vaois have an metal chassis (haven't loket the aliage) and feel very resistant with a good build qualitie while some other feel like cheap plastic toys it realy depend on the model and line up of vaio you are looking to
if you don't need any 3d power this laptop should do the job just fine seeing from what you are upgrading so we kinda need more detail about what kind of aplication you wanna run in order to beter orient you
