Hey guys,
i have been debating on either the dell XPS or the Sony Vaio. i have been researching alot and would guess that you guys would give me the best advice. My funds are minimal to around 1200, so i have one question..will i notice a great difference between 1.5 GHz on the dell and 2.0 GHz on the sony?
any other advice would be great!
thanks in advanced!

there is also a difference of 120gb hard drive on the dell and 160gb on the sony...and 1gb of memory on the dell and 2gb on the sony. appearance wise i like the dell better. the dell would come out to be 1,100 and the sony around 1,300. is it worth it to dish out the extra $?
oh and im not using this for gaming or anything like that. just for school and myself

Yeah vista is a horrible resource hog, I have a dell with a AMD2-T56 and 2GB of ram. Vista uses about 700-900mb of ram at idle. :eek: So 2gb is a must for the operating system and to do any application work.


Sorry to give you the bad news. :(
