Sony FW laptops

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

thanks

    I will use it for programming GPUs and a little bit of gaming
    the spec seem to be fine i wonder about the brand i know sony is very good but i never used their laptops

    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.
