    I've got the VGN-N11S and can't fault it. Your spec if definately better than mine and you should have no probs, as long as you don't want to play Crysis at full spec you should be more than OK!

    I use mine for Web Browsing, email, mp3's, MKV HD vids, divx and a lot of Football Manager!

    I got the N31S,

    TBH, their over rated.. first thing I did with mine was to strip it down and have a look inside, it's actually quite shocking to see how much empty space is in there.

    We get really cheap parts to fix laptops in work, and I must say, Sony Vaio parts are really really really expensive as well..
