HP ProBook dead... thinking of buying Sony Vaio... HELP

My 3.5 year old HP ProBook 4520s crapped out on me this morning (powers up to only the "HP" home screen but nothing loads... I suspect a dead harddrive). I had a monitor issue half a year ago, and so I'm basically done with HP. I use a Sony Vaio (http://biz.tigerdire...=WEDBLET102SHIP) at work and have been happy with its performance so far. I'm still trying to warm up to Windows 8, though.

Anyway, I'm interested in getting a touch screen, and this Vaio popped up that peaked my interest. I actually like keyboards with a side numeric keypad (hate using top row numeric keys). http://www.tigerdire...key=S170-155354 . I'd be using this laptop mainly for email, video streaming, playing music, etc.; NO video games. Would this be recommendable? Or if there is anything comparable to it that is slightly better, I'm all ears. (I've been told to look into Lenovo but haven't had much experience with it).

The last model I was looking at was the Ultrabook Duos
the idea of having tablet/laptop combination is nice. But I don't prefer the keyboard and it also doesn't come with SSD. Do these perform better/faster with or without that drive?

Any insight is most appreciated.
