    Default Cost of laptop.... this one....

    Evening all

    I need to find out what the cost of my laptop was new/

    I can't find out a new cost - anyone got any ideas? Its a Sony Vaio, the model number it says on the back is PCG-5B1M.

    I've not found it on any of the usual PC world type websites - unless I'm going mad.

    So theres the challenge.....

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Sony Vaio's of a similar spec to yours Rob are priced at £900-£1000. Hope this helps.

    Have a look at the vid and see

    http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/laptops/0,...9187406,00.htm
    Yes that is it..... but if AJA reckons circa £1000 quid thats good enough for me, he's the man in the know on I.T.

    So Alex, what would be a reasonable offer from me to my company to purchase it after a year of use?

    Cheers chaps
