Sony VAIO CW Series (VPC-CW1S1E/P) - 14.1in Laptop - Application & Gaming Performance
For general computing, the CW Series is more than capable, producing high scores in all of PCMark Vantage's range of tests. Its 64-bit OS and 4GB of RAM certainly help here, ensuring it will cope with memory intensive applications like Photoshop with aplomb.
This is also a good gaming machine. Trackmania Nations is dealt with very easily, while the more intensive STALKER: Call of Pripyat produces decent results, too. With a little compromise, most recent PC titles should be playable.
