I'm buying a laptop sometime soon, and decided to look at my options:

My budget for the new computer is: Around $800-$900

What are the primary uses for this computer: Web, Email, Gaming, Photo Editing

What software do you intend on using on the computer? Photoshop Elements, Office 2007, GIMP, etc..

Do you play games? If so, what type of games? Yeah, games that you download, but connect to the internet to play.

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? I have around 3 windows average.

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? Mostly music.

I'm looking at these 2 choices.
Which one is better?

The core i3 is a better processor but the core 2 duo laptop has a larger screen and comes with a smaller hard drive.

I would personally go for the fastest processor and laptop with the largest hard drive because I won't want to upgrade the hard drive soon as I get the laptop.

It also looks like the core i3 laptop has a slightly better video card, so in that respect for gaming it wins.

Going by the specs. and your requirements, I would recommend the Sony VAIO VPCEB16FX/B.
