I can only say, I never had problems with my Powerbook, and I did hear 
enough about bad Sony Vaio's to check if Kraftwerk has a deal with Sony 
and then it would mean less than nothing if they use it. (I do like 
their design a lot though, but heard horror stories about reliability 
and bad service.)

Personaly I stick with Apple probably. Very transportable and not that 
pricey for a major brand. Together with a Quatafire 610 and a faderbox 
it easily fits into the hand luggage and has the power of several EDPs, 
Jammans or what ever. I never had problems with hum or alike.
