Hi

I bought a macbook about two weeks ago but had problems with it (screen flicker on windows) i think it was a windows driver issue but i didnt pay that much for a laptop that would have these problems, so I returned it and decided I want to go with a PC
for all those who told me not to get a mac, laugh at me..
so I decided to get a sony vaio which will be out on april 17th, is there anything I should consider before getting this

Consider for what? What are you going to do with it? What's your budget look like?

The 3650 is fine for midrange gaming, but not at 1920x1080. It will struggle there. The same goes for other GPU related apps - it's not a workstation card, but it should do okay.

Personally, I think Sony has some of the ruddiest notebooks out there. I'd never buy one - the parts are pretty cheap and the prices pretty high. Sony is attempting to be the Macs of the PCs, I believe, and failing at it.

If your budget allows, you might want to look into a Sager computer.

the games i will be playing are old games like CSS and 2d games and as for graphic card programming i remotely connect to high end machines and have them run my code so its no big deal
