sony is the best

Tbh dont bother spending so much on the laptop as i spent about £560 on mine last year on my Dell laptop and now I can get an updated dell laptop at the same/better specs for around £350.

could you tell me why?



speaking genrelly- sony is more realiable, toshiba would come 2nd best after sony and then the samsung in terms of realiabilty and quality of components used.

which site did you get the price for the sony- 440

it seems pretty cheap looking at the specification for it

give you £150 for your laptop?

If you do a quick search on good you get links for it £169.99

not the same specs tho mate

yeh i was thinking h can that model be so cheap- had to be ebay didnt it

i doubt you would be getting any warranty though

mobdeal.com/gif…asp

click on the sony vaio one

not the best of spec laptops but defnitley killing 2 birds with one stone- works out pretty cheap

£460 plus a phone, minutes and texts- best of all its only 12 months

only a good deal if you need a laptop and phone contract at the same time

check it out

say 1 year manufacturers warranty, sony are pretty good aint they?



yeh they are... just the issue of trusting ebay... in the sense that it maybe a factory second or a slight fault? make sure he/she is a good seller before you buy

Surely your current laptop can handle anything you want it too? Why spend another £500 for something that will lose £300 in its first year alone.

well i did fancy a spanky new 1 and try n sell this before it loses even more money but i may just upgrade the ram and stick wireless card in it and see how we are then

Do you want another 15" laptop or would you prefer something lighter or larger?
