Which Brand?Which model?

Dear friends,hello
I'm going to buy my first laptop in next few days.But i'm not sure yet,what laptop is the best for me.
I'm going to buy a laptop,mostly for email,chat and surfing in Internet and it's good if it can be upgraded.

The display is important to me,because of my sensitive eyes.Is it correct that sony laptops have the best quality n their displays?
Is LED displays are better than LCDs?What's the best size for a display?(if the size is bigger,does it mean that one is more comfortable?)Is the blue ray feature a help?

I need CD/DVD-RW,modem and webcam too.
Could you help me,which brand and which model is right to me?

Thanks very much for your help

Has the laptop pickers.

As to the display, the real answer is to INSPECT the displays at the stores. Sony has been the safer choice for those that can't shop.

Try this. Head to and click on laptops. A picker comes up on the left and you can put in Sony, your price and see what fits. Now go find that in a store.

laptop suggestions

Hi Azita,

I hope your laptop search is going well. I went on PC Scout to help you select a laptop that fit your criteria. I think it is a good idea to go with a laptop with a larger screen. Here are a couple recommendations from PC Scout:

Dell Studio XPS 16 w/ SSD: It has a large screen and also a backlit keyboard which may help with your eye sensitivities.

Sony VAIO FW: It is has an extra-wide screen but is not too heavy.

I hope my recommendations are helpful. Let me know if I can help in any other way.

When in Rome

I would need to search in Rome for choices in Rome.

Same for your country. All the laptop choices in the rest of the world that I live in may not be where you are so ask your friends about what they have and compare notes.
