    Sony has a new 50% off clearance/refurbished computer coupon. It takes 50% off any computer in the outlet. There are some 13" i5 laptops with GPU for $350 after coupon. Those are disappearing fast. I have a few disappear out of my cart before I could check out. So I decided to go the other way. The higher the price, the more the savings.

    The coupon code is OUTLETVAIO50.

    The store is here.

    Full specs below. It's your basic i7 quad core, SSD RAID, 1GB dedicated GPU with a full 1920x1080p HD 13" LCD 2.5lb laptop. ;) I'm actually typing on a earlier model of it right now. I'm pondering whether I do need this one. Might cancel. The thing that gets me is the fixed RAM now. It's soldered on the MB. I'm already running 8GB and was hoping to get 16GB soon.

    This one might be of interest to people on this forum. I don't think you'll find a 15" full 1920x1080p HD IPS screen from anywhere else for $450. It also comes with the latest 3rd gen i5 CPU.

    (NVM out of stock now. In fact most things seem out now. Still worth checking in from time to time if you are really looking for a laptop. When these things happen they have been known to restock.)

    Looks awesome :smile:. My only issue is that 1920x1080 is a lot - even on my 15" laptop I find the text uncomfortably small to read. Not a big deal if working primarily off an external monitor, which I am, but I'm looking forward to better Windows support of these higher resolution screens.
