Bought from the Sony store in Central Festival Pattaya by myself.

I bought a Sony Laptop in Pattaya from Numchai, quite expensive but preloaded with a legitimate Windows 7.

A bit of a mess about getting all the language options sorted and removed a fair bit of software on it I didn't want.

Bought an English only 'skin' for the keyboard.

I think Sony supply good quality kit.

I'll weigh in here and say that it sounds like a nice piece of computing hardware for a decent, though high, price.

I'm still considering it.

 

OP, when did you buy this laptop?

Ah-ha, I've found the ear-buds... Sony noise cancelling ones which work in conjunction with the notebook's microphone to detect noise.

 

@MM;

 

Bought from Numchai (Sony store Central Festival) halfway through 2010. I dropped it after owning it one week causing some damage to the casing. It worked fine and I used it until April 2011, at which time I got a desktop system as needed multiple monitors. I sent to Sony Bangkok just before the insurance ran out to get the cosmetics fixed-up. Not really used it since I got the desktop system.

 

I've always used the "charge battery to max 80%" in software, as it's supposed to not degrade the battery so much. Battery seems pretty good and I'd assess it If I knew how.

 

Sexy machine...

 

I have a core-i5 2500 on a gigabyte H67 M/B with a Intel SSD as desktop system and Vaio is a snappier system. ( Although most things are instantaneous on both systems. ) think it's because the Vaio has a QPI system bus and the desktop has a DMI.

Vaio Z is magnesium alloy. Not same as lower end range. I think it's pretty durable.

The insurance claim and complete replacement of what makes it a computer add confidence though.

Some things should never be bought used and I put computers into that category.
