I purchased this http://www.thesonyworld.com/category/laptops">Sony laptop for work and every single time I go online to see a video It freezes up it cant keep up with the speed of my internet. All my older pc's stream the video fast. Don't expect to get a speedy laptop just because you upgrade to the 2.3GHz processor, I did and I lost. In the bright side I got a free Blue-ray up-grade but I wanted a faster pc instead. I've used it for 3 months now. I hope this will help future buyers.
