    I hate my two and a half year old Sony Vaio [17"].:(
    My plan to replace it with a netbook did not go well. Too slow, but I quickly adapted to the monitor size. I buy a new iMac or can I buy a mini and with the appropriate cables use it with the monitor on my old Vaio. Anything more complicated than buying cables and plugging in means I will be buying the iMac.

    I'm not aware of any laptops with video inputs, so almost certainly not.

    ...Sony customer service stinks... I have a >6 yr old PCG-TR3A and 3 months after I bought it brand new I couldn't get an OEM Sony battery for it (and it was still a current model... I also inquired about what other 1.8" HDD would fit a couple years later (they have either Hitachi or Toshiba drives in them) and Sony said "we don't support 3rd party HDD's in our computers... I replied "they ship with Toshiba or Hitachi HDD's and they hung up on me...

    ...FYI, the apple refurb store gets the Nvidia 9400m whitebooks in 2.0Ghz or 2.13Ghz for $699 or $749 respectively...

    I take it that means you are not interested in my old Vaio.:p
    Thanks for the Apple refurb info.
