Currently, I've got my eyes on the Sony Vaio Z series. Mainly because of the Quad SSD disk included which would increase my working efficiency. I've heard the screen isn't too great. The computer is supposedly sounding alot when using really intense applications. So I'm not really sure about the Vaio Z yet. I might buy a Mac book Pro and install Win7 on it. Apps I'll be using (not at the same time): Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 for web&game development Photoshop CS 5 (not really sure about this, but maybe) MySQL IIS or Apache, haven't decided yet, but probably IIS so I can run ASP.NET properly. Heroes of Newerth (a game which should run on the computer) Renoise with a bunch of VSTis Firefox with firebug and other webdevelopment plugins. Google Chrome Miranda (always running) Skype (always running in combination with Miranda) XMPlay (always running, not necessarily playing music) Some video players like VLC for maybe viewing a film clip every now and then Well, what do you guys think?
