You customise it from Sony if you wish; extending the warranty by 1 year will cost around £70. You can upgrade the GPU to ATI Mobility Radeon HD4650 1GB for free.http://www.sony.co.uk/hub/vaiobyyou

John Lewis doing same model with 2 years warranty for £899 (call them if they have in stock)

I advise you to either get it from John Lewis, because it comes with 2 years warranty and they have excellent service or buy directly from sony and extend the warranty.
