as we all know, the school year is creeping up on us.. and i've been searching for a decent laptop to take with me for quite a while now. i've managed to narrow it down to two choices, both of which have decent specs as far as i'm concerned. i'm not entirely sure which one would be best though... the Asus model i'm looking at promises long battery life, but it doesnt have some of the ports/slots the sony model has. The sony model costs more, and seems to have a much weaker battery ( reviews say its about 3 hours at most) but it has a firewire port, which i've heard is handy. any advice would be greatly appreciated.
here are the two laptops: FRYS.com*|*Sony Asus - Laptop with Intel® Core2 Duo Processor - Black - U81A-RX05
