Go with the S360, and be prepared for some fan noise

I've contacted SONY and they told me that their machines DO NOT USE MXM/AXIOM modules (it's changeble PCI-E graphics, like in desktop PC) So the right way is to wait till SONY release their Super-Duper SONY VAIO S series or maybe some other series machine with MXM or AXIOM module (to be able to change everything: HDD, MEM, CPU, BT/WiFi/ and finaly missed GPU, that not to buy new notebook each new year) and minimum 8 pixel pipelines graphics chip on it, IMHO.

I used to have a S28GP - 2ghz, 1gb ram, 9700 radeon, but the FS is faster especially in games like Splinter Cell CT, and Half life 2. Both have a 80gb 5400rpm drive.
