1.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - but will break !!!, 19 July 2008
This review is from: Sony Vaio TZ21WN/B Notebook Core 2 Duo (U7500) 1.06GHz 2048MB (1x2048MB) 100GB 11.1 inch WXGA TFT DVD±RW DL/RAM Web Cam Modem LAN WLAN BT Vista Business (GMA 950) - Black
I have had 2 of these little via laptops....and they are brilliant for a portable traveller......

EXCEPT !!!!

after about 18 months or in the case of the 2nd one just after 2 years, (basically when the warranty runs out).....they will break/stop working ! Sony will charge you an arm and a leg - in the case of the last one they wanted £900 to repair it !! (so total cost of ownership for 2 years would have been £1600.00 plus £900.00 = £2,500.00 !!!!)

Can you afford £2500 for a laptop ??

I shall never purchase a SONY laptop again. They are designed to just last a year and then they want you to purchase a new one as they make the repair costs so expensive

I have now gone back to thinkpads....you know you are getting build quality
