When looking at some laptops, I made up my mind between 2.
the Qosmio X505-Q880 and VPCF1190X CTO
first's specs are
Intel® Core™ i7-720QM Processor
Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium
6GB DDR3 memory
500GB hard drive (7200rpm)
64GB solid state drive
1GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® 360M
Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD SuperMulti with Labelflash®
LED backlit keyboard
1920x1080 native resolution
ntel® Core™ i7-820QM processor (1.73GHz) with Turbo Boost up to 3.06GHz
Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-bit
500GB Hard Disk Drive (7200rpm)
8GB (4GBx2) DDR3-SDRAM-1333
Blu-ray Disc™ player (reg. price $90.00)
16.4" VAIO Premium Display (1920x1080) with NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 330M GPU (1GB VRAM)
both are about the same price and the main difference is the Qosmio has a solid state drive along with a better graphics card and a bigger screen while the sony has a better processor but more ram.
I'm looking for mainly gamins so weight and size aren't a problem.
Definitely go for the first one because GT 360M performs way better than a 330M.
And don't worry about the faster CPU and more RAM of the second one because the difference between the CPUs isn't noticeable in almost every game/app and also 4GB is enough for today's games/apps
