HP Pavilion vs Sony Vaio

by marcelomdsc / July 17, 2008 5:04 PM PDT

Hello I'm getting my new laptop and I can't decide between these two, I was hoping I could get your input on it.
HP Pavilion

Sony Vaio

From the HP I like that has a graphic card and a HDMI port.
From the Sony I like the looks, the 320gb hhd, and the 2.40GHZ processor. And I like sony better than hp.

I'm open to suggestions of other similar laptops. It must be 14", with intel at least 2.0GHZ, 3gb of ram and a 250gb hhd. With built in cam/mic, grapic card is a plus.

thanks.

Try supplying model numbers when possible.

The smaller screen Sony is one or similar to what my dad bought 2 months ago. Why? He had a 17 inch laptop and found it unwieldy for travel. The reports so far is nothing has gone wrong, it works.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
