i have taken my son to currys today with a view to buying a sony 17" windows 8 laptop
i asked the assistant if anything happens to the operating system are we provided with a back up disc ,he replied no but for £13 they can provide us with one?
Is this right or are they just trying to get more money like trying to sell us ms office and norton antivirus neither of which my lads interested in
Ive just had a look again on the currys site,one of the reviews says its easy to create a back up disc so thats good news if correct,but we have just noticed theres no headphone socket,he likes to play online games with his headphones
"Ways to use Recovery partition
All you have to do is follow the instructions in making the recovery partition when you first open Sony VAIO E Series. Be ready with a set of disks that you will need. You can use DVDs if you want. Once the DVD finishes and is ejected, label it accordingly so you will not get confused with the sequence, if you need to use the disks. Just pop the disks when you boot the device and it will run the recovery program. If you want to boot from the partition from inside the Sony VAIO E Series, you can click on 'F10' multiple times."
link doesnt work for me "page cannot be displayed"
I assumed it would have a recovery partion from which to make a recovery disc but when i asked the shop assistant he said it didnt have that partition,i must admit his answers to my questions were "vague" to say the least
