I have been looking for a low weight, reasonable size laptop for a but and have come across this Sony Vaio, everyone else has it at upto £1300 so for £1067.42 less quidco which I calculate at about £26.00 your paying only abour £1040, might not be the bargain of a century, but think it is a good machine at the best price on the market by at least £100.
Comes up as £1105.05 using the attached 2 vouchers takes of 2.5% and £10 to give £1067.42
Feel free to say if you can find it cheaper, or if there is an equal or better specification machine at the same if not better price.
By the way I have read that you can get the warranty changed from 1 year to 3 years with sony for only £150, which to mee seems aot better than paying £15 a month or £519 lump sum, but if anyone has details please feel free to post.
I normally get negative scores, but lets hope this time I can atleast get a flicker of heat, but will let you decide.
