I'm going to buy a new laptop soon & I get employee discounting through my work. I can get a Sony VAIO laptop or get a Dell Inspiron. They also have Macbook Pro deals, but still out of my price range. Anyway, they're both the same basically & price difference of about $50. Everyone at my work has a Dell laptop & usually no real problems, if any. But I don't know anyone with a Sony VAIO laptop. Any quality issues with the VAIO??

Says to call to get better price. I'd add another 1GB stick of RAM myself. Sony wants an extra $100 for it.
