View Full Version : Notebook Insurance Replacement

Hi there,

I managed to smash up my notebook in a traffic accident and have been offered a replacement by the insurance company. Basically, I have two options and am having difficulty comparing the CPU/Graphics Card. Any suggestions/recommendations on which to go for would be great.

Option 1: Sony 15.5" Black Notebook SVE15138CGB (http://www.noelleeming.co.nz/shop/computers/notebook-computers/pc-notebook-computers/sony-sve15138cgb-15-5-black-notebook/prod121578.html)

Option 2: HP 15.6" Notebook 15-J026TX (http://www.noelleeming.co.nz/shop/computers/ultrabooks/hp-15-j026tx-15-6-ultrabook/prod122737.html)

Am hoping to pick it up tomorrow. Thanks in advance.

Vaio, I have had too many problems with HP's.

Out of those two the Vaio is better spec'd. Both should be ok, I personally wouldn't buy either, but insurance... can't complain with their choice.

The 7650 in the Vaio is nowhere near as good as the 740M in the HP.

How do they both compare with the specs of your damaged one? Are you getting a true replacement or something not so good?
