Advice buying Vaio Laptop

Hello, I'm a web/graphic designer and I need a new laptop.
I currently have a hp pavilion which is not bad, but is not enough for what i need.

I don't really play games in the pc, I do a little of video editing but I do tons of photo editing and use the creative suite. It's worth mentioning that I work with really large photos when editing.

I know I need at least 2gb of ram, but I would like 3 or 4, what I'm not sure about is the processor, my laptop now has a Intel Pentium M 1.73MHZ which sucks.

Is something like this enough...

yeah i guess is just that i see there are more of the same processor with higher speeds.

My other question is, is it worth spending an extra 100 bucks in the other battery that lasts longer?

Battery = iffy

More weight to lug vs. longer life. And I do mean LIFE not battery time. The larger battery will last the average owner more months than the stock size as there is more time between charges and you can keep it topped which Lion, Lipo and such Li____ batteries like.

When on battery you'll like to see the cpu speed plummet so with the C2D at anything 2 and over GHz you are getting "a good one."
