    VAIO Y is good for me..i’m using it right now… everything is good… I’m running Windows 7 O.S… Japan Price 69,000 yen…. in Peso around 29,588… Thumbs Up!!! for VAIO Y…. ^_^ !

  2. Yung Sony Vaio W po sa Electroworld sa Trinoma 10% off pa yung 29k, so nasa 26k na lang po. Yan sana bibilhin ko kaso naisip ko baka mamuti mata ko sa 10″ na screen with 1366 x 768 resolution kaya I ended up with Asus 1201T.

    sayang dapat nag vaio y nalang aq kesa sa acer 3935

  4. Nice one Sony for introducing cheaper netbook models because there is plethora of netbooks these days in marketplace wl latest pine trail chip at competitive prices. Even Core i5 notebooks priced below US$1,000. For instance, here in Saudi Core i5 notebook from Packard Bell priced at SR 3,000. or Php37,000. I’m really surprised!!!

    Looks like Vaio prices are becoming rational.

  6. pricey naman ng vaio y. if i have to buy now i’d go for the base model ngmacbook. almost same price pero with better processor, same amount of ram at di lang ako sure pero mukhang mas better 9400m ng macbook sa 4500mhd ng vaio y. halos same din pala claimed battery life 6 hrs for vaio y while 7 hrs for macbook di lang ako sure regarding sa weight comparison.

    happy weekend everyone. going home now
