I got a laptop the other day.
Sony VAIO PCG-V505EX
1.5ghz Centreno, 512 RAM, 60 gig drive, 12.1" screen, weight in 4.39 lbs (w/ battery), 24x Combo CDRW/DVD drive. So far so good except that the wireless is not working perfectly here at home. But I have found it to works great with other AP. So ya I am not sure what is up, I might swap AP for testing
This machine won't take over though. Still keeping the desktop for storage, and video.. well pretty much for everything. Just using the laptop when i am out in the feild
