In the extensive hunt for a branded powerful laptop on 14" screen. I have ended up on this - I think the price is also quite good.. How is it HUKD members ??


Whether you're studying at the coffee shop or out on the town with friends, the VAIO CR has the head-turning looks to get you noticed. Bold and confident, its innovative design reflects your life, your look and your own unique style. The VAIO CR is surprisingly small and light, but still comes with all the power and performance you expect from a sophisticated notebook including Intel Centrino Duo processor technology, Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium, a 14.1 inch widescreen LCD screen, built-in microphone, Bluetooth and a 1.3 megapixel camera.

The celebrated Italian trendsetter now brings chic minimalism and a straight-off-the-catwalk look to a range of carry bags. All are crafted with care in full-grain calfskin and nylon, and styled to match your VAIO. There's even a matching mouse pouch for each bag, so you can really complete the look.

How is it?
Shockingly expensive!

Small, but not very, the Samsung range has much more portable options.

You quote 250Gb HD, but ebuyer has it as 160 (Which is feeble now!)
It isn't even clear if this is integrated or a discrete graphics card

Calfskin cover seems to be what it is all about, a good looking nothing :-(

Oh, and it is even a LOT cheaper at PC World! £699

I checked on the specification of this laptop and it is 250 GB. I think Ebuyer has made a mistake there.
I have seen the 14" laptops are more expensive than 15.4 which is particularly what I want..

Graphics card is - ATI Mobility Radeon X2300

Is this integrated or discrete ?

I have seen this on pricerunner but could not find any store with stock.. I tried more than 10 places around UK - Derby, Leicester, Glasgow,Brighton,Bristol, Portsmouth,Ilford, Slough are some of the places . I think PC World is playing some tricks to show them listed by Comparison sites.

You should post this as a deal.

PC World lists the spec as containing an ATi dedicated grapchics card with 4GB ram 250 HD and a good fast processor. May not the best deal out there but the weight of the laptop is 2.5KG which is lighter than many.

So original deal not good but at the lower price quite good.

I saw that but could not find any pc world store with stock..I think they have just reduced the price to show in comparison sites when they don't have any in stock.

You're right. Good ole DSG up to their normal tricks. I guess the only chance would to get a display model then.
