My old Dell Inspiron 5500 met an untimely end with a glass of water. So finally my insurance company is paying out, at the moment they are offering me a Sony Vaio. I'm going to stick it to them that Vaios are rubbish and for the same price I can either purchase a Acer Travelmate, which are excellent laptops, or of course a MacBook. All I've heard is they are poorly built, disapointing etc, so can anyone tell me something positive about them? Best Regards.
