**When i was looking at this it seems the initial price was from the education store (even tho i wasnt looking on the education store) so if possible go through there to get the cheaper £371 price and dont forget casback 6.06% with topcashback**

When customizing the vaio if you add the i5 processor with AMD Radeon(TM) HD 7670M graphics instead of adding £80 it reduces the cost from £547.75 to £371.06, ive listed the cheapest you can get it for but adding extras means you can get a 14" i5 netbook with 1600x900 screen, blu-ray reader, for £464.06 add 4gb more ram brings it too £501.28 add blu-ray writer £538.46.

****Seems its safe to ignore the below comment, many people have reported speaking to sony directly and it being confirmed to them it does have the graphics card as mentioned******

When spec is checked AMD graphics is not mentioned eventhough it was selected and such a componant would be shown as its a upgrade. Be aware that buying this laptop expecting a gaming card when it comes it may well not have one. Specs below from full spec view notice where it says Processor and graphics: Intel®CoreTM i5-2450M, 2.5GHz, no AMD

E series, then select 14"
Just ordered with writer and 1600 x 900 screen for £538.46. Hope they honour it
I think there is 6% TCB too so that would take about £20 off. Shame I really don't need laptop. I think i would add the bluray reader, better display and 8gb of RAM for about £540 before TCB. I don't think i will ever burn a blu ray and £40 for an extra 4GB of ram is not that bad of a deal. I don't know what sony are like with warranty and upgrading RAM.

Is there any glitches on the bigger models

A 4GB stick of DDR3 was around the £10 mark recently. At the moment you can get one for £16.79 direct from Crucial.com (free shipping).

Sure, it is better value but for a budget of £400, the op's deal is unbeatable.
When you read the spec list before buying there is no mention of the AMD card as being part of the system even after selecting it and even going back abd selecting it again, which i find a little weird as its a decent GPU and for it not to show up when you choose full spec puts me off straight away, im thinking there's going to be some very unhappy buyers when it turns up without it.

Popoyaya re: the RAM... In 4gb config this probably comes with 2x2gb so to get 8gb you would have to buy two of the sticks you reference for £34. I can understand that people would be happy paying £6 more than this to have it preinstalled (of course if you go the crucial route you can then sell the 2x2gb).

u r correct.. about to order.. then when check back final specs the graphics it show NONE...
Try with other product and it show the graphic we're getting at final..

hmmm... seems like u only be getting i5 with basic integrated graphic.. not as per advertised

Edited by: "khaisuria" 26th Apr 2012
does this have a HDMI port?
Edited by: "bjs2007uk" 26th Apr 2012
Either i5 will get you the same price but neither come up with a gpu as part of the setup so i would say there's a issue, if the OP originally got one cheaper and it did say with GPU something is now wrong as its more money and no mention of the card and im sure such a upgrade would figure in the full spec which it doesnt and i have followed it right to the end just before credit card details.

The spec says it comes with 1x4GB but I still think it is worth the extra £24 for preinstalled because it avoids any complaints from sony that the new RAM caused the computer to break or something like that. It also ensures that you get the right RAM for the machine and the specs on the box will match the spec in the machine when you come to sell it. I would never pay apple prices for RAM but £40 for 4GB is not that bad if you are spending £500 on a computer.
So anyone still going for this?
Does it matter re graphics? Still much cheaper with stock card than the normal price. Order base model for 398. Fingers crossed, my first high class laptop if come through....
Hmm tempting price.

£371 is do-able if you buy through the education store

I'd say the 1600 x 900 screen and 6GB RAM upgrades are worthwhile
Good spec/price but looks like a brick from the side and a bit too plasticky.
I'm not getting the price reduction, so not sure what I'm doing wrong, or if they've corrected any glitch.
So so tempted by this

I placed an order for this laptop this morning, I've just got off the phone with them to double check it is the HD 7670M graphics card as it doesn't show up on my specification as per your comment. However, it is definately on the order the guy told me. Wait and see if it turns up at that price now...
How much would this cost if it weren't a glitch?
Was up for this until I noticed it takes 3 weeks for delivery.

Thanks - when I was looking at 04:40ish there were no prices displayed and no options to configure or buy - I guess they happened to be updating the shop when I tried....
hd 7670m - on par with nvidia 550m............very good laptop gpu (middle class range). Id be suprised if this is honoured. but very hot if it is!

Just ordered £439 with Blu ray player. Took screen shot of i5 with HD7670 etc.
Really good price and unbelievably tempted.
Chances of being honoured.....(answers here)!
Thanks - just ordered with the 1600x900 screen upgrade.
Little chance of being honoured I think, but worth a go!

Don't forget 6.06% TCB!

If it definate shall probably order one myself as at that price its fast enough to do everything even a little gaming if thats what i want.
