Well I've been looking into purchasing a laptop lately. I talked to a friend of mine who told me he could get me Sony VAIOs for a good price. I looked at what he had to offer and the Sony VAIO A195EP caught my eye (http://www.technoworld.com/laptops/SONY_Vaio_A195EP.html). So I'm trying to decide if this is worth buying. Basically I want to know if any of you guys have had experience with this particular laptop or know anyone that has. And oh ya, he tells me he's buying these things through Europe. The only thing is what about the warranty? Don't you need a receipt in order to redeem the warranty through Sony?
