My New *PINK* Sony VAIO
This is the 4th time that I’ve put my laptop in my suitcase, only to turn it on when I arrived back in Hong Kong to find that the back light had been shot. I can still use it, but I can barely see and need to look at it from an angle with the correct lighting – which is still a good because my data is accessible. The laptop was only 3 years old! I hope to run more mileage out of these things. Anyways, after consulting SONY in HK, they estimated a repair cost of $1800 HKD (!? Might as well buy a new one). So I bought a new one!
I’m pretty shocked at myself for choosing an ALL PINK laptop, but truth be told, it looks HOT. It’s sleek and powerful (compared to what I was using before) and it’s completely eye-catching and does not speak Lisa. Check out some shots of it below:
So let me tell you about this Sony VAIO CS series laptop.
- It’s completely pink, even the keyboard (and I’m getting a bluetooth PINK mouse that matches to boot)
- The keyboard types really nice – each key is rounded and perfect perfect perfect
- It’s decked with 4 GB of DDR2 RAM (can’t go any faster than that)
- It’s running a Intel Core 2 Duo Processor at P8400 (which is 2.26 GHz)
- It’s got off board GForce Video Card (if I rethink about installing World of Warcraft again)
- I’m going to use ALL 250 GB hard drive of space just because I have it
- Built in camera and microphone for communicating with the parents and friends back in TO
- Total cost of just above $10,000 HKD – not bad considering the specs
- Free PINK blue tooth mouse
- Free carrying case
- Local warranty of 1 year
- Free extended warranty of 3 months (still better than nothing)
So if you’re in the market for a new laptop – consider the CS series – it comes in White, Black, Sports Car Red, Fabulous Pink and a special edition Brown (I think). But, I would suggest getting it at the Sony Store itself, or you don’t get all the freebies.
This is why I’ve been off line for so long (yes, a whole 2 days, but it seemed like an eternity). It’s because I was without the hardware – but now I’m back and decked in pink and loving it.Tags: laptop, sony, vaio
