    it looks perfect for taking notes etc. but why buy a sony ? i'm pretty sure there are Dells and toshibas that have the same specs but cost around $100 less.

    unless ofcourse you want that vaio because you like the quality of the screen.

    u can run KO with that computer but it will run at like 30 fps with 1024x768 as resolution and medium detail.

    If u want a notebook for play chose 1 with a real graphic card!

    always loved toshiba, so this is what i would get if i had $1000 to spend, you could go for a less expensive model and even within the A300 series there are even graduations of how much each type costs.

    IMO for taking notes at your university i would suggest MAC air (currently using one for taking notes myself)
