Sony Vaio U750P at CompUSA


Reports of the death of the Sony Vaio U750P have been greatly exaggerated.  Just found this on CompUSA:




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.


$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)

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.

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.
