Sony halves price of mainstream supercharged Vaio laptop

You can grab the Sony Vaio VPC-F23N1E laptop from daily deals website Livingsocial for as little as £437 (including delivery), less than half what others like John Lewis or PC World are charging for the same laptop.

Note that the deal ends in six days.Although it uses Intel's Sandy Bridge architecture rather than Ivy Bridge, it is still a pretty capable computer.

It runs on an Intel Core i7-2670QM processor clocked at 2.2GHz (turbo boost to 3.1GHz) with 6MB L3 cache and four cores.There's also 4GB PC3-10600 of DDR3 RAM, a 640GB SATA HDD spinning at 5400 RPM, a Blu-ray DVD drive, an Nvidia Geforce GT640M with 1GB RAM, a 16.4in 1,600 x 900 pixels display, two USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 port, Firewire, SDHC card slot, HDMI and D-Sub port, GbE Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a front facing webvcam and Dolby Home Theater audio technology.

As expected, the VPC-F23N1E comes with a full size keyboard and keypad, a number of special buttons plus an array of preloaed software like VAIO gate, Adobe Photoshop/Premiere Elements, Office 2010, McAfee Internet Security and more.
