Need opinions on the Sony VPC-SB1V9E

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So yeah, I've just sold my sig rig and I'm currently looking for a laptop to replace it.

In all my searching I've found the Sony Vaio VPC-SB1V9E, and it seems to have everything I want, only it's a little expensive.

So as I know nothing about laptops, I'm hoping someone here can offer me some advice. I really like the sony, and from the reviews I gather it's a great laptop. The only problem is my fiancée isn't keen on me spending over £900 on it.

So really my question is, is it worth that much really? Or is there something similar that I will be happy with?

I really like the fact that it's light and portable, whilst still being pretty powerful. One of my main uses will be work for university, so it needs to be comfortable to use.

If anyone knows of anything else that will be similar, then please let me know. I want to get something soon.

I'm not really sure what 900 pounds is in US dollars but oh well. If you are very sold on it, then it is your money and you can choose. Have you looked at any Asus laptops?

I've just found the Toshiba Satellite R830-143, but I can't find a review for it. It looks to be decent

Have a look at the Lenovo Y560. Got it a month ago, its a multimedia notebook, and quite portable, the battery isnt bad and its pretty powerful. Ive got an i7, but I would suggest an i5 for more portability, the i5 has switchable graphics too.

I personally am in love with it. Only thing I dont like so far is the glossy surface, its a dust and fingerprint magnet, I have to rub it down almost every time I use it outside.

Heres a review
