Sony Vaio VGN-CR140E/B

Hello guys,

I'm planning to buy a new laptop next week (I'll buy it on BestBuy) and I THINK I found the right one for me and is the

Sony Vaio VGN-CR140E/B
The price is: $1,349.99 @ best buy.

These are the links:

BestBuy

Newegg: (It's cheaper here)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834117533&Tpk=c r140e

I was trying to research more about this Sony product and I only found a few reviews about this laptop. I did not even find this in the SONY website, just the CR190E series. I went to the nearest BestBuy store and they said that they were out of stock. Now, I got no choice but to purchase this online.

If you are going to suggest a different laptop, I just need it to have a built-in webcam on it and ofcourse it should be core 2. The laptop will only be used for general purposes (no gaming at all).

Now these are my questions:

1) Is this a good laptop? Also, For the owners of this laptop, how is it?
2) Is the price right for the specs?
3) Do you have any other Laptops in mind? (With the same price $1300-1400) *It should have a built-in webcam.
4) Where should I buy it? Newegg or BestBuy? If I buy it in Newegg and had a problem, should I return it to Newegg or Sony? If I buy this to BestBuy, how to we go about the warranty, return to Bestbuy or Sony?

Thanks in advance. =)

  1. I generally dislike Sony as a company. Their laptops look nice and have decent quality but they are EXPENSIVE in general. The price for that laptop isn't bad, but is a little high since it only has integrated graphics.

    I found this ASUS (who I like better) for $1299: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834220175 The only thing against it is the 1gb of RAM, but you can upgrade that yourself if you want.

    After some looking I also found this:http://discountlaptops.com/index.php?section=configurator&regular_model_id=1451&model_id=1452

    15.4'' WSXGA
    Core2 T7300
    2gb RAM
    8600mGT
    80gb 7200rpm HDD
    Best of the bunch IMO.

    I'm typing on a Sager laptop right now and the build quality is excellent.
  2. Thank you very much for your reply. Thats very helpful information. I'll try to check out other brands and figure out what to buy. Thanks again
  3. What do you think about the Dell Vostro 1400?

    Do you think this is a better deal compared to the Sony Vaio CR series?

    Thanks again.
  4. I think for the money, the Dell will be better. Plus it has a dedicated graphics card compared to the integrated on the Sony. If you want to make it an even sweeter deal, google "Dell Coupons". You'll get an even better deal.
