Announcing a product is not the issue with our market, the price is a great determinant for their market penetration in a saturated market like Nigeria. They should raise competitive pricing for better market leadership.
Re: Sony VAIO Notebook Debuts In Nigeria by dakiri(m): 2:42pm On Jun 26, 2012
I am pretty sure, that the price will be the determining factor in how well they will do.j

Not only that, 1terabytes Hard disk size is available for most laptop including Sony Viao. It cost between 100 to 120 dollars to get.

Second Generation Intel Core processors? Is that a joke or was this piece taken from a 2011 article? Elsewhere Sony announced the launch of the new s13, s15, etc. All based on the Third Gen Ivy Bridge processors.
Sell that crap somewhere else!

Dude google Dell XPS 15. There's nothing sexier. Both in specs,design and battery life.

Maybe, but that's an upgrade. The 1TB is the base storage size of the XPS 15.

Until I see the difference between my macbook pro (which was "better" last year), I won'tbe touching the new mac book. Apple products are often exaggerated and the "newer" products are usually a slight change from the old ones. No major difference.

And the new Macbook does not even have a DVD/CD player. Not welcoming for students.

PS: Never going to PC again.

Get an external DVD.

Besides if you are serious,you would have a one or two external devices.Wink.

So I'll have to be carrying an external DVD around with me while I'm using one of the "best upgrades" apple can offer?

not much of an upgrade, from my viewpoint.

The point of such "inventions" is so that ppl like me could use "more" while obtaining "less".
Re: Sony VAIO Notebook Debuts In Nigeria by folahann(m): 10:06pm On Jun 26, 2012
Trust me Viao netbooks are really cool. Battery life is superb, like 8.5 hrs. Very durable and easy to carry around w/o feeling u're carrying anything. A nice option for a 2nd laptop
