Sony Vaio S VPCSB26FG is now selling at 10K less (Php44,999)

The Sony Vaio S is the companies mainstream business laptop. The VPCSB26FG model is the entry level Vaio S. Featuring a 13.3-inch (1366 x 768 pixel) resolution screen and weighing in at just 3.8 pounds, it is large enough to be used as a primary laptop or for hours of long use and light enough for frequent carry. The Sony Vaio S weighs 0.8 pounds less than it primary competitor, the 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro. This puts the Vaio S in between the weight of a MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, while providing an optical drive and discrete graphics.

The other specifications are:

  • Windows 7 Home Premium with Service Pack 1 64-bit
  • Intel® Core i5-2410M Processor 2.30 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 2.90 GH
  • 4GB DDR1333 RAM
  • 500 GB SATA Hard Drive

  • 2 USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.0 port
  • HDMI out
  • Card and memory stick readers

  • Rated at up to six hours battery life

The price of the entry level Vaio S has been dropping drastically as of late. The previous model was priced Php59,999. Two months ago, the updated model was released with a faster processor and larger hard drive with the price being reduced to Php54,999. Now, the price is down to a amazing Php44,999.

At Php44,999 it is priced all 17K below the price of the entry level 13-inch MacBook Pro. The current selling price is so low it can now compete even with the Acer Aspire TimelineX 3820T. The  3820T is still 7K cheaper, but the Vaio S has the advantage of discrete AMD Radeon HD 6470M graphics, 2GB more RAM and an optical drive.

Sony Vaio S VPCSB26FG comes in four colors: Black, blue, silver and pink.


  1. is there any discount if i will pay in cash?

  2. I am not sure with this particular unit, but in general you can expect an additional 6-10% if you pay cash. Some prices are zero interest prices and you can also expect a discount if you pay cash or do a straight payment with a credit card.

  3. okay thanks for that, hope i can get this for just 40 - 41 k because i want this badly

  4. At 60K I felt this was a better deal than a 13-inch MacBook Pro, but it was largely ignored by the market. At its current price, it is a steal.

  5. i need an ultraport that can run CS5 Photoshop, Lightroom 3& acrobat, wt 1.4kg +/- & has batt life of at least 6hrs or more with removeable batt & upgradeable ram, what do you suggest? Is the zenbook better than vaio S or mac air 13in? how abt the toshiba R830 which all have the same i5-2410? thanks. i value your advice.

  6. I would probably go with the Viao S or one of the 15-inch MacBook Pro's because of the discrete graphics.

  7. Thanks to say for posting this blog. We have to get new collection of news from your end. All the best for you best support. Keep updataing your blog. This is really nice job

  8. the 4830tg is more thin and light but with 2mb nvidia and same i5-2430, is this a better buy at P44,900?

  9. The Acer 4830TG has a bigger hard drive, larger screen and Nvidia Graphics.The Sony has more RAM, weighs less and has better build quality. I would go with the Sony.
