New Sony Laptop

I'm thinking of buying the Sony Vaio FE11S, anyone got any thoughts or actually has anyone got one?

Unless you particularly want a 160Gb HDD and/or the dual core processor, it looks a bit pricey to me!

Well I like the spec, the Media Centre aspect aswell, I was also looking at the Toshiba A100-163, I would get staff discount off the Sony at 10% so it would make it a little more reasonable

I think if you can get 10% off the Sony (does that bring it down to about Stg.1050 or so?) then it looks a good deal - a very nice machine.

click here Excellent choice. Not bad price, good spec, great performance. I speak from experience because, based largely on the review in that article, I've just sourced one for someone and it is surperb.

I've had mine for a week and it is fantastically good. Always been a VAIO man for laptops - the build quality and style are second to none - and this one replaced a VAIO PCG-K215S.

Got mine on special offer from Comet online for £1149 which made it a fantastic bargain but shop around and you should be able to get one for around £1160 click here;jsessionid=154414abbee652c/shopdata/0060_Sony/0190_Sony+Vaio/0088_Sony+Vaio+FE+Series/product_overview.shopscript or click here.

That said, John Lewis sell at the MRRP click here but they bundle a two year warranty with it. Sony Online were also doing refurbished ones (already?!) at £1149 or so with a year's warranty and bindled Skype (VOIP) USB telephone, but that offer may have closed now.
