Let me be blunt. Sony ranks bottom on service and support. I'm felt this one and can't say anything nice about their service because... there was none.
I am a undergraduate engineering student, and I'm interested in purchasing a new notebook. I'm particularly looking for lightweight, favorable aesthetical qualities, speed, battery life, and durability. So far I am considering the dell 700m, and the VAIO Z1. Please let me know any information you may have.
