I'm torn between these two notebooks. I need something really light and can travel with all the time. I dig the Sony SZ because of weight and size, but for some reason I can't seem to let go of Alienware. I have to have multiple windows open and the display as small as possible. I looked at the m3200, but the 12" isn't for me. The price of the Sony doesn't scare me, but I want to make sure I make the right decision since I am dropping alot of bills. I spec'd the m3400 with the Pentium M 2 Ghz processor, loaded up on RAM (2 GB) and a 100 GB 7200 rpm drive. The Sony would have the Pentium Duo 1.83 with 1 GB of RAM and 120GB 5400 RPM drive. It also has the Cingular Wireless built-in as well, which would be handy since I have the Cingular 3G PC card right now. I couldn't find any reviews for the m3400, so it's making it a bit tougher. The price for the AW would come out to about $2150 (including shipping and tax) and the Sony at $2398 (including tax and shipping - I have a hook up, hence the lower price). What would you all select?
