Vaio Notebooks - Let the Buyer Beware
I love Sony's TX series notebooks. They cost a bundle (my TXN27CN cost a bit less than 3,000 $), but you get fantastic hardware. The battery lasts for a very long time, the screen is plain brilliant, and it is really light in terms of its weight. What drives me bonkers, however, as with any of the other vaios i had, is that the silver desktop colour peels off in absolutely no time. This h as happened to me with every Vaio I ever owned (and there have been a few over the years). Makes me wonder what's wrong with the bean counters at Sony. I wonder whether it's worth putting people off who pay a huge premium for their premium hardware by way of adding cheap paint on the desktop.
