FS: Sony Vaio TX-750 ultraportable laptop with some accessories

This laptop has served me well--every part is in working order and great condition. There is some visible wear on the keys and on the plastic case (front and sides). No effect on the working order of the laptop. Comes with a protected screen cover (invisible, already installed); a Vaio protective sleeve case, and the battery charger. Battery is 100% healthy. laptop is very light and very portable, with a GREAT battery life

I am selling because I am moving to England and already have a laptop as my main system. Price: 500$

Specs from sony,
Take a load off your shoulders when you're racing for your plane with the sleekly designed and ultra-portable Sony Vaio VGN-TX750P/B notebook PC, which weighs just an amazing 2.76 pounds. It also features integrated wireless Wide Area Network (WAN) technology to keep you connected and productive when away from your workstation and a dual-layer, multi-format DVD/CD burner with Click to DVD software, enabling you to create high-quality, customized DVDs for presentations or home movies. It also has an 11.1-inch widescreen LCD with XBRITE technology, 1.2 GHz ultra-low voltage Pentium M processor, 60 GB hard drive, 512 MB of installed RAM (1.5 GB maximum), a battery life of between 4 and 7.5 hours, Bluetooth wireless capability (for connecting to peripherals such as PDAs, cell phones, and printers), a multi-format memory card reader, and a wide assortment of pre-loaded software titles.

The Basics

* Hard Drive: The 80 GB hard drive (4200 RPM) is a bit above average in size for notebook PCs--and especially for notebooks of this small size. It offers more than enough capacity for storing documents and productivity software for road warriors. You'll also be able to store a good-sized digital audio library.

* Processor: The Intel Pentium M Processor Ultra Low Voltage 753 (1.20 GHz, 2MB L2 cache, 400 MHz FSB) delivers outstanding mobile performance and low-power enhancements for sleeker, lighter notebook designs. The 1.2 GHz clock speed can be misleading--for most tasks, this processor will be faster than a 1.6 GHz Pentium 4-M. This older processor sits at the bottom of the current spectrum for this processor class (as of March 2006).

* Memory: The VGN-TX750P/B has two memory slots and comes loaded with 512 MB of DDR SDRAM (PC3200, 400 MHz DDR RAM; 1 x 512 MB), and it can be expanded to a maximum of 1.5 GB.

* DVD-RW Drive: Offering the latest in DVD writing technology, the multiformat DVD/CD drive is compatible with both DVD+ and DVD- disc formats as well as dual-layer DVD+R discs, which can store up to 8.5 GB of data. For both standard, single-layer DVD-R and DVD+R discs, it has a 4x write, while double-layer DVD+R discs have a a 2.4x write speed. Rewritable DVD+RW discs write at 2.4x while DVD-RW write at 2x. For CDs, it has a 24x write/10x rewrite speed. It also has a separate DVD-ROM drive with 8x DVD read speed and 24x CD read speed.

* Keyboard & Mouse: This notebook has an 82-key keyboard with 1.7mm stroke and 17mm pitch and an electrostatic touchpad.

Screen, Graphics and Sound

The 11.1-inch XBRITE LCD has a resolution of 1368 x 768 pixels--perfect for watching movies in their intended 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. Sony's Smart Display Sensor feature instantly adjusts resolution when you connect to a display or projector. Video is powered by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900, which uses Intel Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT) and provides up to 128 MB of shared video memory. The integrated audio card provides 16-bit stereo sound via the built-in stereo speakers.

Connectivity and Expansion Slots The VGN-TX750P/B features Sony's SmartWi technology, which seamlessly integrates wireless Wide Area Network (WAN), 802.11b/g wireless LAN and Bluetooth technologies, enabling you to toggle among your wireless connectivity options depending on your surroundings. With the Bluetooth connectivity, you can communicate and synchronize with Bluetooth-enabled peripherals such as PDAs and cell phones. You get a good offering of connectivity options, including both USB 2.0 and iLink (FireWire):

* 2 USB 2.0 ports for connecting a wide range of peripherals--from digital cameras to MP3 players
* 1 FireWire (also known as IEEE 1394 or i.Link) port for connecting digital video camcorders and other peripherals
* 1 VGA monitor port
* 1 PCMCIA (or PC Card) slot (Type I/II, 32-bit)
* 1 headphone jack
* 1 microphone jack
* Port replicator connector
* Memory card slot, compatible with Memory Stick and Memory Stick DUO media with MagicGate functionality and Secure Digital Media (SD)

It also has an integrated 56K modem (V.90) and an RJ-45 LAN network port (for a 10/100 Ethernet connection to networks and DSL/cable modems). The optional Port Replicator unit also includes 3 additional USB 2.0, VGA, RJ-45, and parallel ports.

Preloaded System and Software
This system comes with the Windows XP Professional Edition (which adds Microsoft's IIS Web server, back-up and recovery utilities, Remote Desktop, and other enhanced business features) with Service Pack 2 featuring Advanced Security Technologies, which helps to reduce unwanted downloads and pop-ups while surfing the Web. It also comes loaded with a bevy of Sony multimedia software: Click to DVD (DVD creation), SonicStage (digital music), SonicStage Mastering Studio (with MP3 encoder), Vaio Media (network file sharing), DVgate Plus (digital video), and Image Converter (for PSP transfer). Other preloaded software includes Quicken 2005 New User Edition, Microsoft Works 8.5 (with word processing, spreadsheet, and calendar), Norton Internet Security (with 90-day subscription), Intervideo WinDVD, Roxio DigitalMedia SE, Adobe Photoshop Album starter edition, and TrendMicro Anti-Spyware (30-day trial).

Dimensions and Weight
Amazingly small and light, the VGN-TX750P/B weighs 2.76 pounds with standard battery and measures 10.7 x 1.12 x 7.7 inches (WxHxD).

Power
It's powered by the VGP-BPS5 lithium-ion rechargeable battery, which produces a battery life of between 4 and 7.5 hours.

Product Description
The ultra-portable VAIO TX750P/B Notebook is an incredible 2.76 lbs with standard battery and has a standard battery life of 4 to 7.5 hours. The integrated DVD+R Double-Layer/DVD?RW drive puts the power to create high-quality, customized DVDs at your fingertips. A stunning 11.1" widescreen display makes this notebook easy to use for work or play. The integrated 802.11 b/g wireless LAN and wireless Wide Area Network (WAN) technologies keep you connected in almost any location. With wireless WAN, you can access the Cingular Wireless national EDGE network to extend your wireless coverage beyond LAN access networks and hotspots, giving you the freedom to go farther, do more, and stay connected. And, with Sony's original SmartWi technology which seamlessly integrates wireless WAN, wireless LAN, and Bluetooth technologies, you can quickly and easily toggle between your connectivity options.

Not for the sony ultraportable line, I don't. I priced mine lower than what I found on ebay and craigslist.

You can get all that shit for 450 but not in a 2.5lb ultraportable unit. I would entertain offers, but not "substantially lower" as you put it.

There are a bunch of "tx" models, try searching just for that. Here's a version that is not as advanced as mine (slightly lower model, the 670):

i used to have an ultra-portable like this (not sony, i think it was fujitsu). these are like netbooks but with actual hardware -- not that atom junk. this one has a pentium-m, which is gonna be at least 2-3x faster than a netbook.

so i'm just saying if you want cheap get a netbook, but this is a full-power laptop in netbook form factor. wouldn't be surprised if this was > $2000 new.

Sony releases a model of the same form factor about every year, with slight upgrades (sometimes not so slight, like an SSD option or blu-ray). They always retail between 2000 and 2500 though.

Mike is right. These laptops are net-book sized in terms of body weight. However, the Sony ultraportables feature an 11.1 inch screen with a great resolution and has real hardware that is worthy.

For informational purposes, I wrote my dissertation on this little laptop. It also handled all of my statistical and research work, which is sometimes very resource intensive.

Thanks mike

Hate to break it to you homes, but you can buy netbooks that are that small and have better spex - DDR2, 160+ gig HDs, OLED screens with same rez... and maybe they do lack an optical drive but nothing a cheap 50 dollar external drive cant fix

as a former pentium-m ulv user (1.2ghz, same cpu listed here) and a current atom user (1.6ghz, typical of netbooks) i can tell you that there is no comparison. the netbook specs look better but you're getting much less. netbook screens suck. ddr2 doesn't matter much because or in-order execution (this is why the new atoms with integrated memory controllers saw almost no boost). of course hard drive technology is vastly superior even on the cheapest netbook, but ultra portables aren't designed to store hundreds of gigabytes.

if i was considering a netbook i'd also consider this guy if you can overlook the cosmetic flaws. i'm not trying to help vendetta sell his junk but i have a problem when i hear people hyping up netbooks that really aren't ready yet. in 5 years the "netbook" will be the amazing platform we think it is now.



p.s. vendetta i want 10% of your profit when you sell this .
