While I was walking around downtown today and I saw this really cool notebook displayed in the window of DigitalOne. Intrigued by its design I approached the display window and I immediately recognized it as the new Sony Vaio notebook. Wow! This beauty is now available in Dumaguete?? I’ve only seen this in the Sony Style channel. The unit displayed was white and cost Php35, 000. I didn’t get the specific specifications for the particular model but as soon as I got home I researched it over the Internet.

Here are a few facts about this model which I got from the Sony site:

Planning to buy one of these? Why not head out to DigitalOne located at Perdices Street. You won’t miss this small computer store which is in between Jollibee and Rose Pharmacy.

    Sony VAIO VGN-NS235J/W 15.4-Inch Laptop
    I love the new laptop. It works fast, it’s not too big and didn’t have too much preinstalled things i had to take care of. And for the price, it was a bargain.

    Sony VAIO VGN-CR409E/T 14.1-inch Laptop
    Beautiful, fast, packed with features and software and ready to go in minutes right out of the box, I fell instantly in love with the thing. And being a longtime Mac person it was a difficult decision to give a Window machine a try. So yes the sound is a little weak, surprisingly from a Sony object, and now I hope it doesn’t break in 3 weeks, as I read a lot about Vaio problems… In the meantime I see in it everything I need from a laptop. And Amazon offered an incredible price, free delivery that happened to be the next day. So far a top consumer experience for me.
