IBM T series gets my vote everytime.

anyways, i cant imagine anyone buying that laptop just for the blu ray. i dont see the point of having this blu ray thing in the first place. with hard drives that cheap these days, i hardly burn anything. well, maybe its good for movies and etc. but i cant imagine how it gets better than DVD.

I would buy this notebook as a notebook and a desktop replacement. I own more Sony things then I care to mention and have never had a single problem with any of them. (except for my first home theater reciever getting fried when our house was struck by lightning) The fact that this has a blu-ray player and it is (relatively) cheap for what all it has is enough of a selling point for most people. And like boswell said, until every single person in the world has a fiber connection to their home, blu-ray and HD-DVD discs are needed.
Umm, sorry to ramble. Nice notebook and a nicely written article. :D
