The VAIO CW is great, But going by your needs, the VAIO Z, or the VAIO SR are much better.
Would you care to explain why yu don't want a Mac? Believe me, I didn't like them either. But my friend convinced me to buy one. As a student, it was the best laptop decision of my life. And I own 5 modern laptops.
But if you feel the need to shun a laptop because you don't know it, I recommend the VAIO's Maziar and I mentioned. I like the VAIO CW as I won it and it is quite nice to have for the price. A little chubby, though.
