    NO, you shouldn't.
    You might as well get a high-end MacBook from Apple.
    It almost has the exact same specs except that you dont have to pay for anti-virus software and the MacBook has a bit faster processor (intel core 2 duo 2.16GHz), and Mac OS X which is like getting VISTA ULTIMATE on a PC machine, but OS X is WAY better than Vista. And to top it all off, Apple will be making Mac OS 10.5 'Leopard', which is a brand-new OS that will make Vista seem obsolete!

    by the way , the Sony VGP-BPS9 battery is cheap at http://www.laptopbatteryretail.co.uk/son...

Most laptops you can buy for under 1500 and it will have most of the stuff that this sony has, your paying for the name honestly.

Keep in mind it is a intel core2 duo processor so thats the main reason why the price is up. Unless your running high end programs, stay away from this laptop.

Our Toshiba review unit had the following specifications:
  • Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 2.1GHz processor
  • Intel X3100 Integrated Graphics
  • 2GB RAM DDR2
  • 160GB (5400 rpm) hard drive
  • 15.4" WXGA 1280x800 screen
  • Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG (802.11a/b/g)
  • 10/100 Ethernet LAN
  • Modem port
  • VGA-15 pin
  • DVD-SuperMulti drive (+/-R double layer) supporting up to 11 formats
  • ExpressCard Slot
  • SDCard Slot
  • 3x USB 2.0
  • Headphone and microphone jack
  • webcam
  • Battery: 6-cell (4800mAh) Lithium Ion battery
  • Weight: 5.7lbs
  • Starting price: $949(about 40000 rupees)

The Satellite Pro L300 didn't have any problems running multiple programs or multi-tasking jobs with its Core 2 Duo 2.1GHz processor and 160GB hard drive. I could check email, open documents and surf the Web without any lag. The benchmarks are average and overall the L300 did good on its PCMark05 score compared to other notebooks in the same category. I am sure the fact it is running Windows XP instead of Vista helps out this business savvy notebook as well.
wPrime is a program that forces the processor to do recursive mathematical calculations, the advantage of this program is that it is multi-threaded and can use both processor cores at once, thereby giving more accurate benchmarking measurements than Super Pi.

Which is better laptop deal?


Hi !!

Ofcourse 2.4 ghz is better than 2.1 ghz but its not a very big difference if price difference is more than 100$ than go for first one else second one is good and the most important thing i want to mention is that it all depends upon your needs you havent mention for what purpose you are going to purchase. But both are enough for gaming, daily use and for techie as well.

Hope that helps
Thanks
