More Cloudy than Sony

Fair’s fair and it’s time for a whinge.

Way back, about two years ago I was all aglow about my new Sony Vaio, the VGN-NR11Z.  It is a great looking laptop with the requisite fantastic screen quality which you expect from Sony.

It’s had 22 months of actually not very hard wear but it now has a battery life of 20 minutes (and it seems to be impossible to get a replacement), the chrome has worn off the mouse button, the silver weave finish is discoloured and the DVD drive won’t burn or format discs.

Yes, I know it’s TWO YEARS old.  And yes, it probably was more of a consumer than business model.  But still…

I love Sony’s products, I really their seemingly unmatchable screen quality but I’d hoped for a bit more durability.
