    Default Sony Vaio Y series or Macbook Pro

    Hi can anyone convince me on which laptop to buy, the top of the range sony offers all of the top components available today and even usb 3.0 with a blu ray drive. The macbook pro 17" is supposed to work better with the software but i'm finding it hard to find a reason why i should part with double the cash for something that doesn't have all of the features of the sony.

    The Vaio's are basically one big chunk on the inside so if something goes wrong you have to replace nearly ALL of the guts.

    Maybe get a 15" macbook pro instead if you don't want to spend as much.

    Mac, unless of course you like to tinker with your computer and its software.

    I was a PC for 15 years, I've got Macbook pro last year and never looked back!

    To put it simply...it just works!

    There are better options than the Vaio out there especially if you're using it to DJ.

    I own an FW which is rather nice but very breakable. Right now it's out for warranty service to address such issues as 'broken palm rest' and 'motherboard failure causing Windows registry and boot record corruption'.

    If the topic of this post were titled 'Lenovo ThinkPad vs. unibody MacBook' it would be a fair fight.

    Thanks, for replies. I think the Macbook shall be the one, I just wish apple didn't take the piss on there pricing to much eg. $400 for upgrade to 8gb ram or $1400 for 512gb SSD.
