Advertisement Sony Vaio U750P at CompUSA by James Kendrick Jan 19, 2005 - 2:50 PM CST 10 Comments Tweet Share Post Reports of the death of the Sony Vaio U750P have been greatly exaggerated. Just found this on CompUSA: Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement 10 Comments Vidge January 20th, 2005 Joe You bought a lot of stuff! So far I’ve bought: 1800 for unit (not including tax 36 for case (best deal out there IMHO) 46 for BT CF card 25 for recovery disks 99 for extended battery (used the 200 off coupon) total $2006! I already had a Sony usb floppy & I picked up a usb CD burner for $75 but not specifically for my U so I didn’t include that. I did get that 20% off coupon but honestly, I don’t feel compelled to buy anything else. PA January 20th, 2005 Fry’s has them available also. Todd January 20th, 2005 For those interested in more details about the U, here is the link to the U-750p Sony page. I think this page has been updated/changed since I bought mine. http://www.sonystyle.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/LC_ViewPage-Start?isurl=true&basetemplate=/lc/base/lc_hf.isml&page=static/lc/vaio/notebooks/u/index.isml Howard Joplin January 20th, 2005 CompUSA is not the only one carrying the device. I was in Microcenter this past weekend and found one on display. My roomie put up with my new gadget frenzy for about 30min then dragged me kicking and screaming out of the store! Here is the link to the product page on their site: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0183170 Joe_T January 19th, 2005 $2000?! How’d you manage that? My embarassing total so far is (after rebates, before taxes and shipping): 1800 U750P 360 DVD+-RW (Sony, bootable) 36 Case (Sony) 270 Extended battery 50 Printer (180-130 Sony rebate) 150 Wiflyer wireless b modem 50 Naturally Speaking 8 std. 90 USB mic for VR 50 Ghost/Partition Magic 27 Styluses (3 – searching for soft tip) 450 monitor (Samsung 193P from J&R) 30 XP books 250 Microsoft Office (to buy after trial) —- 3613 And I just got a 20%-off-accessories coupon from Sony. Uh oh. Hello A/C adaptor, camera, case? Maybe third battery? After all, it’s on sale! Definitely not in my cheap nature, but here I am. jk January 19th, 2005 Vidge, I agree with you whole-heartedly. I sure miss mine. :( Vidge January 19th, 2005 All I can say is that it’s about the best $2K I’ve ever spent:) jk January 19th, 2005 Just get a (very) strong lanyard and wear it like a pendant. :) Frank McPherson January 19th, 2005 For me, $2K is too much to spend on something I would carry around with me and possibly lose. I have enough worry over my $500 devices. Comments are closed.
