Sony Vaio P series in Taiwan

I saw this Sony Vaio P series in taiwan 2 days ago at Ximen. There are 2 models:

VGN-P13TH selling for 26,800 taiwan dollar. about 670 pounds. Based on the spec, it comes with

  • Inetl Atom Z520 1.33GHz
  • Windows Vista
  • 8" screen with 1600x768 resolution
  • 2GB Ram
  • 60GB HDD
  • Wifi, Bluetooth, MS/SD card reader
  • Intel GMA 500 graphic chip
  • 620g weight

VGN-P15T is selling for 36800 taiwan dollar, about 920 pound. From what I can see, the spec is almost similar except it is using Intel Atom Z530 1.60GHz and 64GB SSD. It weight 590g.

My laptop from Heathrow Terminal 3

On 24/12, the day I return to KL, I saw a slim Samsung NP-X360 laptop selling for 1275 at DixonsTaxFree. It comes with SU9300 Processor, 3GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 13.3" TFT screen and Vista Business. It claimed as lightest as it doesn't come with a cd drive. This is an overprice laptop since it used an integrated video card.

Then comes Sony Vaio VGN-Z11MN for a jaw dropping 750. It is very light at 1.5kg with 13.1" Screen, Intel Core 2 Duo 2.26GZ, 4GB DDR3 ram, dedicated nVidia 9300M GS graphic, 200GB HDD, wifi draft n, and DVD drive. This model is no longer selling at high street as Sony is pushing VGN-Z20 series that comes with better spec and HSPDA module for double the price. Frankly speaking, you can't find such a good Sony Vaio spec for this price. It is easy to maintain as it doesn't have a glossy surface, hence no finger price problem.

Since I couldn't resist the features and price, I bought it as a perfect Xmas gift for myself.
