Earlier this week I sold my gorgeous Sony Vaio X505/CP laptop on eBay.  The X505 is truly a work of art, both in terms of appearance and engineering

At a mere 0.8KG the X505 packed an impressive 1.1GHz Pentium M processor, 512MB of RAM and 20GB hard disk drive… lightyears ahead of the new MacBook Air!

Sad as I am to see the X505 go, I’m also looking forward to buying myself a new laptop, which will replace the X505 and my current desktop PC

This will be a Dell M4300… so, not quite as luggable as the X505, but it should strike a good balance between portability and function.  I’m specifically after an M4300 with a minimum 2.4GHz C2D CPU and the gorgeous 15.4" 1920x1200 display (the same as my Dell 24")

Let’s hope the new owner treats this brilliant piece of kit as well as I did
