although this lap top actually belongs to my fiancee i tend to use it more than she does. it gives you everything you would expect from a sony product. i have personally used this laptop for a wide variation of things and have never been let down. before i tell you any more here are its very impressive specs.

i am sure you can see from the specs above that this laptop is going to be able to do everything you require and more.
ok lets talk price now well i personally payed £965 for this item but have seen it since as low as £840. whilst i would have liked to get it a bit cheaper obviously, i can still have no complaints as it is worth every penny i paid and more. my fiancee tends to use this machine for chatting to her mates on msn and writing blogs. i however put it a little more to the test. i have used it for everything i would normally do on my desktop, such as downloading converting and burning movies, extreme gaming both online and through dvd roms with huge graphic requirements and also for web building and advanced use of google earth. this laptop has performed remarkably and i would recomend it to anyone who is looking for perhaps a laptop to replace a desktop or a laptop to match their desktop then this is the one, or perhaps you just want to have the best and be the envy of friends then go ahead buy the Sony VAIO C1S/P - Core 2 Duo T5500 1.66 GHz - 13.3" TFT
