Re: Dell Studio XPS 16 vs Sony vaio FW series

There are many laptops available in the market. Out of this two, I would prefer Dell Studio XPS 16. The advantages with this is - DDR3 Ram due which everything here is faster than the other computers.

Dell has known to be really good. I too have a Dell computer since past 5 year and it still works nicely.

Re: Dell Studio XPS 16 vs Sony vaio FW series

You will notice that most of the people will recommend for Sony Vaio, because the brand name Sony is much more popular than Dell throught the world because of its products. Normally, Sony products are high priced and if you wish to spend good amount of money then go for Sony Vaio. Otherwise, when I compared Dell specifications than Sony, I find Dell better...
