Sony VAIO VGN-NR220E/S Notebook

 

Nice 15.4" laptop with ooutstanding built quality. Although it's the entry level laptop for Sony, they DID NOT cut built qualities. You can tell in every detail. The laptop is plastic, but it doesn't have a cheap feeling that most plastic laptops do....

large crisp sharp screen, vivid colors, solid built quality.

No bluetooth, no built in camera or built in mic.

Need a cheap vaio?

 

This is one of the cheapest Sony Vaio laptops. You can get it for about $600. I purchased this solely beacuse of Sony name. It is an average laptop with a slow processor. You will need to upgade memory to 2gb.

Sony Brand, price

Cheap looking vaio, processor is slow

great entry level Sony VAIO

 

Buy this lovely baby several days ago in BB when it's on sale for about $400. Great entry level laptop with Sony brand. Windows Vista Home Premium is with it. So it's a little bit tough for 1gb memory to work with it. I'll upgrade it to 2gb later....

large crisp sharp screen, vivid colors, solid built quality, cheap price. :)

1gb memory need to be upgraded, no bluetooth
