Hi there,

You should check out the Sony Vaio EB series. You can upgrade the laptop to have ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 540 Graphics. It has a a fast i5 processor and up to 500 GB of storage. It has a 15.5" screen.

What do you think?

I am currently looking at this one myself. The complaints on the screen issue seem to be a tpyical problem with the updated drivers and some of the company settings on the ATI 5650 cards. I have been told that turning off the Power Play option in the ATI Catalyst settings goes a long way to fixing this issue.
