I'm basically looking for a portable computer that I can take with me to university lectures and do some schoolwork on, but which is future-proof enough that it will last me for at least 4 years. Priorities are a good screen and portability.

Okay so the main point of this question is: the previous-generation sony vaio z is being offered for 1000 euros with the following specs:

screen: 1600x900 vaio display premium
processor: intel i5-2450M
ram: 4gb
memory: 128gb ssd raid 0

so should i just jump on this offer or are there better options for me? This is kind of urgent as there are currently only 2 units left in the online store offering them...
