It's quite rare for Sony to release a laptop that doesn't cost an arm and leg but is still quite powerful, so if you're a Vaio fan you might want to check out Sony Vaio CW :
It retails for $799.99 or around Php 37,600 (CCBT*) and considering what you get inside the hood, IMO, it's all good!
Measuring 13.44 x 1.09-1.52 x 9.18 inches and weighing 5.3lbs, CW Series is a bit on the hefty side but its bulk only serves to house great features:
2.80GHz Intel Centrino 2 CPU
supports up to 8GB of RAM and 500 GB disk space (no SSD option though)
optional Blu ray burner
NVIDIA GeForce GT230M 512MB or GT210M 256MB graphics
VGA and HDMI ports.
ExpressCard 34 slot,
three USB 2.0 ports,
2 memory card slots,
audio in/out and a webcam.
Sony Vaio CW comes in black, blue, white, pink and red.

UPDATE: In the Philippines, Sony Vaio CW with base specs costs Php 50,000 and Php 73,000 for the full powered model. Not cheap at all.
