****Hold on you can vote hot now guys, its £910.57 from the education store****

Keep checking for deals on sony.co.uk and just noticed this has dropped. Price is 974.00 + £4.75 delivery, yes i can add but sony cant. Guess its to do with the rounding up of the vat. As far as im aware this is sonys answer to a macbook, not comparing just mentioning it. Amazon has same spec but with i5 processor for £1219.99. So this seems cheap if your interested in this, its not for me though. I know people say about having 5 year warranty on stuff under the eu etc but i was slightly surprised to see sony offer 2 years warranty on this. Can add a backlight keyboard for £15 and save £40 if a 1600x900 screen is enough for you.

The configuration makes no sense, why would you want an i7 + SSD with only 4GB memory, shared gfx on a 13 inch screen?

i7 + SSD lends itself to gaming, 13 inch+4GB+shared gfx doesn't (at all).
13 inch screen lends itself to mobility, so why have an i7 + SSD driving the price up?

If you're going to go for small laptop then get an i3 and conventional hdd, and it'll be much cheaper, if you want a gaming laptop then get 6-8GB RAM, bigger screen, dedicated graphics. You can get decent gaming laptops for a similar price, and decent netbooks for half the price, if not less than.

Once a deal goes 'hot' when it reaches over 100 degrees then it remains on the hot thread even if it then falls in heat
#49
how come this is showing up in the hot deal when is over -111

well since it was first asked many idiots have asked the same question - if thats enough to confuse those unable to read then i expect they'd kneejerk a cold out.

On most of these "ultra portable" laptops/ultrabooks, SSD comes as standard as they are too thin/compact to have a HDD.

Ok, let me put it another way. For "Ultra portable" laptops, SSD will reduce weight and increase battery life, two things that are needed for portability.

My point still stands, you're paying double the price for an extra 0-30 mins battery life (depending on what article you want to believe), 40g lighter, and an i7 CPU+HD screen that you're not going to be using.

That's not putting it another way. You got it completely wrong and have made an entirely different point.

4gb of RAM is fine for gaming, but I do agree with all your other points.

Doing my part, lets make this colder than Siberia.

Sony at it again, overpriced stylised rubbish with usual Windows crap inside. Cold from me. If I had that kind of money I'd buy an Apple laptop and get done with buying laptops for at least a decade like I did with desktops after buying my iMac DV500 back in 2001 which is still in good working order.

Got a vaio when on sale in Tesco for around £300, thought it would last. I was wrong and I regret buying this cheap plasticy bit of rubbish. No better than other brands plus the plastic is cracking after only a year.

Its for designers / coders / video editors who need portability and full HD. The ability to display two full webpages on 13 inch screens is useful to many web designers.

Or use it with a docking station for desktop like experience.

Brilliant piece of hardware by the way, you will only understand if you held on of Vaio Z laptops in your hands.

if you assign a numerical value to 'at least 90' and 'slightly more than 90'
on average at least 90' is greater than 'slightly more than 90' making adidas addict a nonretard
conclusion: flombard loves adidas addict.

Granted, however personally I think 1080p on 13" is almost unusable, especially if divided between 2 browsers, and even then the SSD+CPU is wasted for designers and coders, the only way this laptop could be optimally used is by a video editor who wants to be ultra mobile, doesn't want to utilize GPU encoding, and would rather work on a tiny 13" screen.

This is laughable. Anyone who thinks this is a good deal is a moron, and I'm normally the one telling people they are wrong - no one should be coming in here saying this is a good deal, and Dell have always made some of the most reliable computers around and have amazing support, they are perfect for anyone who can't make their own.

People saying this is good are the real idiots.
