    I want a Vaio Z-series

    If anyone's got one going spare, I'll swap my iPod, lava lamp and laptop for it.

    Stop recommending the Asus 1215N Hexus...

    It sucks balls cos it regularly breaks the charging pin because of a poor design. Check the eeeuser.com forums for info...

    I don't care, I still want one

    I don't mind about the RAID controller/one of the SSDs borked either - semi-seriously, you don't happen to be recouping any losses by selling the broken ones on cheap are you?

    I prefer the XPS 15 to the XPS 17. Slightly more versatile size, with option for full HD screen (strangely the 17" come with a higher resolution screen than the 15" at stock, but is stuck with it).
    As for the Sony I'll pass. Great on paper but I don't trust their quality (I am replacing an SZ Premium).
