I used to work for Sony Electronics. The VAIO is expensive because it says "SONY" on the box. Really, that's it. Buy a box with the same specs for less money.

they are expensive because they are pretty. and because it is SONY. you pay higher price for the brand name. nothing is special about sony in my opinion. If i was buying laptop i would choose a different brand like dell, asus, msi sony is just overrated and overpriced. IMHO

because its SONY..just like any other establish brand, you somewhat buy not just a laptop but a sony label as well.. but to fair, you can get what yours money's worth..because of a name well taken cared off by its reputation, you can be confident that you get what you paid for..

if u ask me, it depends on where u are buying th elaptop. some places are just uneccesarily expensive. i think one has to compare prices or they may never get a good deal
