I am eyeing the new hp laptops... i need a new one.... are they any good on the whole? they look sort of cheap but i like the nice big screen any advice would be appreciated - i am not up to date on this stuff. my old one was a sony vaio and the thing was a workhorse. 5 years of everyday use and it still works well - just slow.... have dropped it down stairs. dribbled on it...i dont even know if sony makes laptops anymore???
