A couple of laptop observations from a former IT director...

All laptops break at some point if you travel a lot with them.  While the Sony's are well engineered and have some great cutting edge features, they do not have good world wide repair services.

If you're buying for local use that's not an issue but if you're doing a lot of traveling you'll want either an IBM or a Toshiba since they have outstanding world wide service, often next day.

We had IBM's Sony's, and Toshiba's.  The Sony's didn't break any more often but repairs took much longer.

This isn't to say you shouldn't buy the Sony, but to point out that with a laptop service is sometimes more important than features
