Sony Vaio PIII 650MHz laptop w/ DVD-ROM ex cond Upd:SOLD

Postby VEFF on Sat Jan 15, 2005 12:06 pm

I have a Sony Vaio laptop for sale.
Since I have two desktops, this hasn't been used in a very long time.It has been stored in a laptop case/bag.

The item works flawlessly and includes all accessories, except the original box which I threw out when I moved.
It still looks as good as new!
I will use the restore disc, so that the hard drive is clean...

The model is Sony VAIO XG28K (PCG-XG28K).
Pentium III 650 MHz.

I have to research this to determine a price.

- It has an 8X internal DVD-ROM drive that can be swapped out for the included floppy drive, or they can both be used, since the floppy drive comes with a cable for external connection to the laptop.

- 12 GB HDD

- swappable floppy disk drive (FDD) (can be used externally as mentioned above).

- The RAM has been upgraded from 128 MB to 256 MB.

- It comes with Windows 2000 Professional.

- it comes with a bunch of software pre-installed (also on handy included restore disc if you every need to restore everything).

- Includes USB port, built-in 56K modem etc.


If I don't get enough for it, I will just keep it for occasional web surfing (convenient for in bed use e.g.).

I couldn't find any photos online, except this one (for now at least); also includes two user opinions.

Correct. It has USB 1.1 built in

Yes, I think it actually has 2 PCMCIA slots for wireless adapters and other uses.
I have to check, since it has been in a laptop bag for a long time.

I can e-mail you some photos of it in its current state, since it looks like it was bought a month ago.

Haven't thought of a price; got sidetracked.
I'll think about it and let you know.
