    Default Dual Core Sony Vaio/ Vista/ 2GB ram/ DVDRW+dual layer
    I have upgraded this to 2GB ram just 4 days ago.

    Laptop with modern looks in black/silver and 15.4-inch LCD; 1.6 GHz Intel Core Duo T2060 processor
    80 GB hard drive, 1 GB RAM (2 GB max), multi-format/dual-layer DVD/CD burner
    Two USB 2.0, one FireWire, one ExpressCard 34, one S-Video, Memory Stick reader
    54g Wi-Fi (802.11b/g), 10/100 Ethernet, Intel GMA 950 (up to 224 MB of shared RAM)
    Pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Premium (with Media Center capabilities) Product Description
    Designed to complement your modern design aesthetic, the Sony VAIO VGN-N220E/B balances beautiful form with highly functional computing features. It features a black-and-silver case for a cool, contemporary accent. Beyond its eye-catching good looks, this laptop offers a bright 15.4-inch XBRITE-ECO LCD screen that provides brilliant colors from photos and videos while helping to save drain on the battery. This affordable notebook PC is powered by Intel's powerful Core Duo T2060, which provides an optimized, multithreaded architecture for improved gaming and multitasking performance and a more efficient power consumption. The dual execution core T2060 has a 1.6 GHz processor speed, fast 533 MHz system bus, and a 1 MB L2 cache. It features an 80 GB hard drive, 1 GB of installed RAM (2 GB maximum), dual-layer multiformat DVD drive that also burns CDs, 54g Wi-Fi connectivity (802.11b/g), Intel GMA 950 graphics processor with up to 224 MB of shared video memory, an ExpressCard slot, and Memory Stick slot.
    This laptop also comes preinstalled with Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, which includes all of the Windows Media Center capabilities for turning your PC into an all-in-one home entertainment center. In addition to easily playing your DVD movies and managing your digital audio library, you'll be able to record and watch your favorite TV shows (even HDTV). Vista also integrates new search tools throughout the operating system, includes new parental control features, and offers new tools that can warn you of impending hardware failures.

    The Basics

    Processor: The Intel Core Duo T2060 processor is built with the Mobile Intel 945PM Express chipset, and it has a 1.60 GHz processor speed, fast 533 MHz front-side bus (FSB), and 1 MB L2 cache. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance. The FSB carries data between the CPU and RAM, and a faster front-side bus will deliver better overall performance.)
    The Intel Core Duo processor has two computational execution cores in a single processor, providing greater system response when running multi-threaded applications simultaneously with no significant increase in power consumption. It's optimized for multitasking and is ready to support the next version of Microsoft Windows, code-named Vista. It can simultaneously run multiple demanding applications--such as graphics-intensive games or serious number-crunching business productivity applications--while downloading music or running virus-scanning security programs in the background. It's more efficient, thanks to Intel's Power Coordination and Deeper Sleep, which help to transfer power only to those areas of the processor that need it. It also features Intel's Digital Media Boost, which delivers enhanced performance on floating point-intensive applications such as CAD tools, 3-D and 2-D modeling, video editing, digital music, digital photography and gaming.

    Hard Drive: The 80 GB Serial ATA hard drive (5400 RPM) has become the average size for notebook PCs. It provides enough capacity for storing documents, digital media files, and productivity software. This SATA hard drive also quickens the pace with a higher speed transfer of data--akin to FireWire and USB 2.0.

    Memory: The 1 GB of built-in memory (PC4200, 533 MHz, DDR2 SDRAM, 2 x 512 MB) is a good start out of the box, but you'll want to maximize the 2 GB capacity of this machine to make your multimedia hum along.

    DVD/CD Drive: The double-layer DVD drive is compatible with a wide range of formats, including both DVD+RW and DVD-RW discs, CD-RW discs, and dual-layer (DL) DVD+/-R discs, which can hold up to 8.5 GB of data--great for backing up your MP3 collection or your most important documents. It features the following speeds: 4x for DVD+R DL, 4x for DVD-R DL, 8x for both single layer DVD+R/-R, 8x for single layer DVD+RW, 6x for single layer DVD-RW, and 24x/16x for CD-R/RW. It reads DVD-ROM discs at 8x and CD-ROMs at 24x.

    Keyboard & Mouse: This notebook has a standard 86-key keyboard (2.5mm stroke and 19.05mm pitch) and electro-static two-button touchpad.
    Screen, Video & Audio
    The 15.4-inch WXGA LCD offers Sony's XBRITE-ECO display technology and has a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. The widescreen display gives increases the width of the notebook's display while giving the computer the form factor of a smaller computer, so it takes up less space on your desk or in your briefcase Video is powered by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950, which uses Intel Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT) and provides up to 224 MB of total graphics memory from the system memory. Audio is powered by Sony's Sound Reality audio enhancer.
    Networking, Connectivity & Expansion
    This notebook has an integrated Atheros 54g wireless LAN that's fully compatible with 802.11b/g wireless networks. It also includes a next-generation ExpressCard/34 card slot (though no PCMCIA card slot), which lets you take advantage of thinner, faster, and lighter expansion cards for even more advanced wireless, networking, storage, and security features. Here's the full list of connection options:

    2 USB 2.0 ports for connecting a wide range of peripherals--from digital cameras to MP3 players
    1 FireWire (also known as IEEE 1394 or i.Link) port for connecting digital video camcorders and other peripherals
    1 ExpressCard/34 slot
    1 VGA monitor out
    Stereo headphones/speakers/line-out
    Memory Stick slot (supports optional Memory Stick and Memory Stick DUO media with MagicGate functionality)
    Secure Digital memory card slot (also compatible with MMC cards)
    It also has an integrated 56K modem (V.90) and an RJ-45 LAN network port (for a 10/100 Ethernet connection to networks and DSL/cable modems).
    Operating System
    Windows Vista Home Premium is the operating system for users with advanced computer needs, and it includes all of the Windows Media Center capabilities for turning your PC into an all-in-one home entertainment center for watching DVD movies and accessing your digital audio library. You can also use Windows Media Center to record and watch your favorite TV shows (even HDTV) and to access new kinds of online entertainment content. Computers that include Windows Vista Home Premium and an auxiliary Windows SideShow display will also allow you to access key data even when your computer is off. It is also easier than ever to share files between other PCs in your household and to manage your laptop computer settings to more securely connect to your favorite WiFi hotspot.

    Every edition of Windows Vista provides the essential tools and technologies to help protect you whether you are browsing the Internet, connecting to a wireless network, or just reading e-mail. All editions of Windows Vista include new tools that can warn you of impending hardware failures long before you have lost any important personal data. And, all Windows Vista editions include parental control features that allow you to manage and monitor your family's use of games, the Internet, instant messaging, and other activities.

    Preloaded Software
    Includes Sony Click to DVD (for easy DVD creation), Microsoft Works, Microsoft Office 2007 Student and Teacher Edition (60-day trial), Symantec Norton Internet Security 2007 (with 60 days of Live Update).

    This notebook measures 14.4 x 10.5 x 1.6 inches (WxDxH) and weighs 6.8 pounds.

    Nearly new and very nice shape. Only 1 year old!

    The only visible marks are where the screen layed against the desktop and made tiny marks on the desktop around the keyboard. They are extremely light marks, but I wanted to mention them. This is an AWESOME laptop.

    Comes with a very nice case, mousepad, power adapter, and the unit itself.

    Noteworthy: I have installed Adobe Photoshop Elements on this machine!

    $575 shipped!!!!

    I do not own paper, we're a green room business (for those who know me)- digital only.
