Thats a good laptop, with good specs, the only down side according to me is the Small Screen, there are a lot of laptops out there for $600 or under with the same specs & bigger Screen.

I'm not a 17 inch laptop guy, i just don't feel comfortable with it. 11 Inch is to small, 17 inch is to big, 13 or 14 inch is what i like.

This screen size segment will definitely find its fans, but the price is not great... there is plenty similar laptops with this specs way cheaper than this, but I suppose small part of the price you are paying for the 'brand'... Sony was always a bit more expensive, because it is Sony :)
My previous laptop was the Sony Vaio, I was really happy with it, but when I upgrade I choose Acer, which have way better specs than Sony in this price range...
