Not sure if this is the correct forum...

I'm trying to decide between getting a Sony VAIO or an HP Pavilion laptop.

The Sony has:

Processor Brand: Intel
Processor Class: Core Duo Processor
Processor Number: T2050
Processor Speed: 1.6 GHz
Bus Speed: 533 MHz
Mobile Technology: Centrino
L2 Cache Size: 2 MB
System Chipset: Intel 945GM Express
Memory Speed: PC2-4200 (533MHz)
Memory Technology: DDR2-SDRAM
Installed Memory: 1 GB
Maximum Memory: 2 GB

The Pavilion has:

Processor Brand: AMD
Processor Class: Turion 64 Mobile Technology Processor
Processor Number: MK-36
Bus Speed: 1.6 GHz
Mobile Technology: Turion
L2 Cache Size: 512 KB
Memory Technology: DDR2-SDRAM
Installed Memory: 512 MB
Maximum Memory: 2 GB

I'll be using it mostly for word processing, ripping/burning dvds (both have dual-layer burners), and converting stuff to XviD.

Any thoughts/help is appreciated -- thanks!

(Oh, and I'll be getting Windows XP on it...)
