Hey guys, its been a while since i've been here. Been busy with work and the new baby, which just turned a year old this past weekend. Anyways, i just got back from BestBuy and i bought this Sony Vaio http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Sony+-+VAIO+Laptop+/+Intel%26%23174%3B+Core%26%23153%3B+i5+Processor+/+15.5%22+Display+/+4GB+Memory+/+500GB+Hard+Drive+-+Gunmetal+Black/1245431.p?id=1218240958083&skuId=1245431 and im not sure if i chose the right thing. I love the processor thats in it, but im not sure if i really need that much power. Does anyone have any experience with Sony's? I owned one a long time ago, but that was it. Any feedback would be great!
Cheers!
Adam

I was going to buy the exact same one from Best Buy like a month ago, but the Geek Squad guy fed me some bunk about being able to only have one shot at creating the restore Cd and wanted to charge me to create it. I set the box back down and walked out while he was still talking, he wasn't a Geek he was a dork, and a liar :-x

Looks nice, but I wouldn't want one with that low of a resolution on such a big screen. Really a personal preference though.

Wow man, an i5? Ya, if you just surf then this is overkill. Do you do any gaming? I would personally put it back on the shelf.;)
