Here are the three models I have narrowed it down to. All are Sony VAIO's. I will be using it for everyday use. Things like ebooks and many docs, web, movies, music, pictures, etc.

So, can you tell me which one? Also what I should add or take away from others? I am going for the customized models, this way I can get more of what I need and less of what I don't.

Thank you for any help.

The EC series because the large screen for your movies and pictures, blueray player for watching blueray movies. It has 1GB graphics which is advantage. You should get the 500GB harddrive because the rpm is 7200 which is the fastest unless, you want large capacity then the 1TB or 750GB which are both 5400rpm.
