I originally was given an HP laptop in the $1,000 price range and returned it for this Sony model after some extensive research. The HP was big, bulky, had Windows 7 Home, and it was heavy - although it did have a 15 inch screen and 6G Ram out of the box.
Portability, functionality, power, and price/value are very important to me in a laptop. I've owned many company issued laptops over the years including a 2.2lb Sony back in 1998. This Sony laptop is even better since it is more sturdy - although it is a little heavier at 4.2lbs. It's got a great screen, keyboard, is small in size - great for commercial airplane travel and use on the plane, and it comes with Windows 7 Professional. Of all the laptops available in this price range, I would jump on this one in a second for the aforementioned reasons.
What's great about it: Light, great keyboard, screen, size
What's not so great: Sound system is average, but I don't care
