    Since I only see the pictures of them, so I can not make a decision which one is looked better when considering both beautiful and durable.

    I am male, so I prefer to darker color.
    I want to make a choice between Night Black and Titanium Gray.


    Question:

    1. Does anybody have owned, or have made a comparison them side by side?

    2. whether the SR is easier to be scratched?

    3. please see specification below, the price will be $1,255.49 after $200 instant saving and $94.5 student program saving, whether it worths the money, how about the performance does it?

    Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor P8400 (2.26GHz, 3MB L2 Cache)
    Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium 64-bit
    3GB PC2-6400 (2GBx1 + 1GBx1)

    Please give me any suggestion or recommendation for anything.

    thanks a lot.

    I'll move this to the Sony forum. I think you'll get more response there.

    I personally prefer black but I've never seen it. I've only seen silver and it looks really good.

    I too have only seen the SR in silver. I'm not sure that I have a preference on the colors, but the black does look pretty slick in the photos on Sonystyle.com. FWIW, my wife is dead set on getting a pink SR (we're ordering it later this week). I'm not sure what's going on as she's never been a big fan of the color. I guess the laptop and pink mouse (to match the laptop naturally) will go well with the pink cover of her ipod Touch? :confused:

    I agree, black, it seems to be the colour I associate with vaios for some reason.

    Black is a pretty good color, but I find that Silver usually shows the best over time. Scratchs, scuff marks, don't show up as much on Silver than they do on other colors I think.

    The black looks very slick(i own one). I've heard that the lighter colors tend to look cheaper and give it a somewhat flimsy look...although i feel that the lighter coloring of the vaio Z also does that. The black SR justs looks sleek and sturdy... but in terms of build quality, obviously all the SR's are identical. They now have the silver SR with the black keyboard...which is pretty cool....
