    Ok, thank you.

    Would avoiding ebay be a good idea? I mean if something goes wrong, I won't have a warranty will I?

    Re: Netbook Vs Notebook

    So, If you forgot everything, whats a good deal out of these 3? I need a laptop fast as my computer is acting up and I think the hard drive is failing.

    Sony VAIO FW11 E For £570 or £520 I believe

    Samsung R560 for £635

    Samsung Q310 for £634

    Re: Netbook Vs Notebook

    3 completely different laptops lol

    The sony has a lovely keyboard and screen but is big and difficult to lug around. Good CPU reasonable GPU but gaming won't be great.

    First samsung I would buy if gaming was the biggest concern on this budget.

    Q310 for portability. Tried the Q210 the other day though and the viewing angles on the screen were a bit awkward.

    Yeah, I read that on the Q310 and the Q210 the viewing angles are a nightmare. Not sure about the R560.

    I just need a laptop with some raw power really. I dont intend to play games that are new, other than maybe WAR on it.

    I realised the laptop will be used on university campus, so portability I guess is not really an issue since I drive everywhere.

    Just wondering if the Song is good value for what it is.

    Thanks for your help. Really close now

    Re: Netbook Vs Notebook

    Dell looks very nice yeah, portable and great gaming potential

    The 1440 x 900 screens are very nice but I wouldn't pay too much for the privilage.

    The screen upgrade is about £30 and the intel wireless N card is about £30 also. Not sure if either is needed. I can't find any data on the difference on the screens.
