Sony Vaio has Power Adaptor problems moving on into the long run after your purchase and I had seen some of my Pal's machines junked out like this and as @mobike008 said ..its only popular for its looks and the finish...i dont recommend it personally compared to Lenovo/HP and Dell .

I have a second hand Sony Vaio running on XP. One thing that sets it apart from other laptops is the picture quality of the LCD screen.. Not surprising considering they are better known for making consumer appliances. The rest is just about the same or less than what you get from other brands.

i would also recommend a macbook if you are willing to spend 60k on a laptop. it just doesnt get any better...

also, pls forgive me for going offtopic here, but can anybody enlighten me as to how much a used macbook [not pro] would cost. i am looking for one and am on a tight budget [very tight, actually, i may even make u laugh like the guy in the ebay ad], can someone give me some pointers on where can i get a good deal.

Great choice. After using Dell, Toshiba and Acer Ferrari, I bought my MacBook Pro a few months back and I have been extremely happy with it. A few things to keep in mind

- Please do buy Apple Protection plan as MacBook is prone to breaking down a bit more often than Toshiba or IBM. I have had several friends who have been using Mac for a long time and they suggested that.

- Make sure you have a min of 2 GB RAM. You will need it.

You may more for the name SONY than for anything else. If you want to brag about your product then its worth extra money (mostly about 50%-605 more than HP series).

If you are a serious buyer wants to get value for money then go for HP Pavilion series(NOT Compaq). HP Laptops are decent quality, eligant, stylish, sturdy and feature rich.

Lenova may be cost effective but may not satisfy your stylish tastes.

The shocks you get while on AC power is because something is wrong with the external AC power source. I used to get shocks through my old laptop's chrome bezel surround of the mouse pad when the lap was plugged in to home inverter AC supply during power cuts.

I couldn't understand the phone ringing part.

Go for the Dell, HP & Toshiba Laptops, they have more powerful features, style & functionality then compare to Sony, sony looks stylish & cool but for the seroius computing u should always trust Dell, HP & Toshiba laptops..
