must do. can't have 1080p screen without dedicated graphics

cant see where your getting this price from, the £539 is for the Pentium® P6200, 2.13GHz base model with standard GFX, not i3 CPU
#5
Pretty much exactly the same deal as what I posted here: Sony VAIO E Series

Exactly, just with a downgraded CPU.
I’m looking forward to the next deal at £30 less with a Pentium P6200 2.13GHz. :D
I wouldn’t pay £40 to upgrade from this particular i3 to the i5 but the upgrade to the i3 makes more sense to me.

selected white colour discounted the price by £30 or £40

Am I missing something or is this pretty expensive considering the spec?

Its a Sony Vaio.... ewww

1) Sony cant look after their customers
2) Had the misfortune of owning a Vaio N series & the build quality was horrendous, i'd advise against getting this & go for a HP off them directly or save on laptops

Cost me £270 for one of the near same spec after trading in old laptop

I've had 3 Vaio's in the last 5 years and they're all still in regular use to this day. Every manufacturer has its problems, but I've never known anyone have anything negative to say about Sony's more recent laptop range (build wise anyway).

You're absolutely right about their customer service though! Had to pay around 40 pounds for a backup disc to reinstall windows XP on one of our machines (couldn't find a download with all of the necessary drivers etc), despite following Sony's backup procedure.

great deal,heat added,sony is the best "windows" laptop manufacturer.
#14
Heat added, looks to be a good laptop and a decent price, particularly for a Sony. Anyone else had much experience with the new Vaio ranges? I'm rather tempted by this.

This is a pretty good price for a good quality & well specced laptop.

i3/i5
320GB HDD
3GB RAM
ATI HD5470 512MB
1920x1080
Blu-ray Writer
£539/£579

Pop down to PC World & you will likely find a bog standard ACER for this price.

Writing Blu-rays still seems like an absurd thing to do. They cost a fortune and there's a high probability that you are backing up to a format that 99% of computers have no ability to read.

I actually don't know anybody else that has a Blu-ray drive on their PC :D

I've got a Vio with blu-ray writer - it went wrong after 3 months. I can't fault their customer service - Their UK based staff were very curtious, professional and knowledgeable. Sony arranged for the laptop to be collected the very next day and it was returned to me 2 days later (fully repaired and cleaned under waranty). They also gave me a large screen wipe/cloth as an apology for the inconvenience the fault may have cased me. Thank you Sony, pleasure dealing with you! I've had it for 2 years now and nothing has gone wrong since - superb peice of kit.

Suppose that's why it's got to the scorching temperature of 104° (I didn't vote btw)

Don't like the design personally, especially the rounded and shallow keys. And as for the PC world comment...all laptops are overpriced at PC world..

I was looking at a buying a budget laptop aroundt £400 - I was about to go for an Acer Timeline (liked the battery life and the 14" model with DVD drive is nicely portable but will still play movies to entertain the kids on holiday). But reducing the spec on these to an i3 with 3GB memory makes it the same price - much better quality than an Acer?
