you want a viao but are considering an asus and msi ans hp. what is it?

i strongly suggest a 14 inch laptop. a 15 does not fit in a normal size back pack very well. i also suggest not getting a laptop that can game unless you have an easy major. its to big of a distraction for any gamer.

I dont want a vaio, and it wont be a distraction to me, i also am open to 14 inch. The main reason is that i may not be able to bring my console or tv to my dorm so basically i need an all around laptop that is more geared towards gaming
