    Hey guys I need some help. I recently had The Geek Squad junk my HP laptop. Here are the specs on it.
    HP Dv5-1235dx
    Intel Core 2 Duo processor T6400 (2.0GHz)
    15.4" Screen
    320GB (5400RPM) Hard Drive
    Interl Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD with shared graphics memory.

    I bought it 2 years ago to be exact. The idiots at best buy showed me some crappy models that I was not interested in at all cause they looked cheap as folk. I need some help. My wife and I use this laptop for entertainment purposes. We don't use it for gaming or business etc. All we need is something that is quick and easy to use. I was looking at these models below. I was wondering if either of these were good and which one you all would recommend. I have $500 credit from Bestbuy towards a new one. Im not trying to spend anymore than $650 on a laptop considering they are crap after a year or two with technology and wear n tear. I was impressed with HP however I heard Sony is more reliable. You guys tell me

    Just through a general look through, I would go with the Sony VAIO. Which is rare for me to say, but i read some spec's and reviews, and it appears to me as if the Vaio is a better buy in this case.
