Sony VAIO for only $399!

It's normally $799! It has Vista Premium and the following:

* Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core mobile processor T2310 with 533MHz frontside bus, 1MB L2 cache and 1.46GHz processor speed

* 1GB PC2-4200 DDR2 memory for multitasking power, expandable to 2GB

* Multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support records up to 8.5GB of data or 4 hours of video using compatible DVD+R DL and DVD-R DL media; also supports DVD-RAM

* 15.4" WXGA LCD widescreen display with XBRITE-ECO technology and 1280 x 800 resolution
* 120GB Serial ATA hard drive (5400 rpm)
I was looking at this computer at the Sony store and thinking about getting it, it's a really nice laptop. The only problem with it is that it should have 2 GB of memory to run Vista properly. The salesperson agreed with me on that. But to upgrade you have to take out the current memory and add two more chips. They didn't leave a slot for upgrading. They know that it would be preferable yet they didn't make it easy to upgrade. And you can't upgrade it online, only at the store. Very dumb!
