Bought a New Laptop Today

    Of course, right? it's Black Friday, after all :D
    I have a question or two, but I'll ask them at the end. I kinda want to see what you guys think of the specs first:

    Sony Vaio FW (Custom-To-Order) ($1400 after coupons)
    • Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit
    • Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T9400 (2.53GHz)
    • 3 GB DDR2 Ram (Might upgrade to 4)
    • ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 with 512MB vRAM
    • LCD 16.4" (XBRITE-FullHD)
    • Titanium Gray Color

    Waddaya think? For someone that spend most of their time working with Adobe Flash and Photoshop creating website designs (playing the odd online game every now and then), you think I did good? Should I upgrade to the 4 GB of ram? Would it make a big difference?

    Another question, if I do upgrade to the 4GB ram, will I be able to use all 4 Gigs? I remember reading somewhere about Vista not recognizing Ram above 3 GB or something.

    Anyway, comment away :D

    Wow - you got a powerful PC :)

    Enjoy it - those specs seem great (much better than most laptops I've seen)

    Thanks. You think I should upgrade the memory? I was going to get 4GB at first, but it was 50 more bucks. I figured I'd look for it cheaper elsewhere after I bought it. But now I'm having second thoughts on if I even need it.

    That's a nice pc you got there. I treated myself to alienware a couple months ago. I don't think my alienware has as good specs as this computer. Very nice! Enjoy that pc, now!

    With vista, even 2 gb ram is slow and 4 gb is the way to go. Congratulations for buying a new notebook :)

    I don't see what's $1400 seriously.

    Thats a good looking laptop and I envy the specs although I'd have gotten a tablet PC if it was me.

    Yeah, tablet PC's are cool. If I ever see one that really really cheap and decent looking, I'd get it too. It'd help with my animation practice.
