The sony i mentioned later can be found in the following URI:http://www.sonystyle.co.nz/shop_det...46&sku=VGNS48GP Video card: not quite sure about this, sony got ATI6200 (128MB), 15' PB got ATI9700(64MB), do u guys know which is better?>>>>>> do not know Max Ram support: both 2GB. CPU:1.5G(PB) vs 2.0G(sony)>>>>>sony win FSB:167 vs 533 >>>>>sony win Price(new zealand dollar): PB $3750, sony $3699.95($3700) Optical driveB got Combo drive, sony got ( DVD+-RW Drive (supports DVD+R double layer disc)) Hard disk: both 5400rmp, But PB 15' is 80 GB, sony only got 60GB, However, sony use Serial ATA, PB is ATA, IMO, SATA is better than ATA, right?not sure, so u guys help me about this one, which is better. DISPLAY: PB got larger screen 15', sony only have 13.3', both wide screen, however, sony got Clear Bright LCD. can not say which is better, help me about this as well, thx. wireless: PB has the standard named 802.11b, but sony got Integrated Wireless LAN IEEE 802.11b/g, are they same?which is better? And i think from the perspective of keyboard, appearance, PB win. And the other major thing is sony use CPee, but PB use tiger, PB win lot. And the software that come with PB (ilife,etc) are much better than sony, so PB win. However, the following thing is the most thing i am concern, although the software come with sony is lot worse than PB, then as i need the PB for school, and we need use J2EE, PHP, do you think mac platform is a suit for this kind of web stuff? Does Xcode support J2EE,Or PHP? Can someone give me some good editor can handle the thing i mentioned above nicely. sorry for the long post, thanks in advance.
