Too poore after-sale service and their laptops don't have mobile processor ( except one or two models ).

Look at the Dell XPS M1710.

Sound card : most of laptops have an integrated sound card onto the motherboard. But you can buy in option from Dell an AUDIGY package with a more sofisticated programs.

Graphics card : you can't have a better with the nVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS/GT ( I prefer the GS : less expensive ).

CPU : The Core Duo is the leader on the market, in front of the AMD Turion 64 X2.

RAM : More you have RAM, faster will be your system. Always take a 1x1024 DDR2. But if you think that your utilisation need more than 1 GB of RAM, take 2 GB !

CPU speed : The 1.66 GHz is very fast. But you can also take the 1.83 GHz is you have money to spend, but most of the time users don't notice the difference between a 1.66 and a 1.83 Ghz.

Hard-drive : The speed is important. A 7200 RPM will deliver better performances than a 5400 RPM, but will take more energy from the battery. If your computer is always pluged and never run under the battery, take the 7200 RPM.

Also : http://www.sonystyle.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/SY_BrowseCatalog-Start?CategoryName=cpu_VAIONotebookComputers_AR_Series&Dept=computers

It has a nVIDIA GeForce Go 7600, a middle-range GPU.
