Sony Vaio VGN-TT290N Ultra Mobile Notebook  

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Anyone have any idea what a Sony Vaio TT 290N is going for?

It was a pretty low production laptop and eBay doesn't have any.

I hardly ever use it these days and its a shame because it is so nice. I feel it is time to offload it before it gets antiquated.

Brief overview:

Condition 9/10
1.6GHz Core2Duo SU9600
11.1" LED LCD XBrite
250GB HDD
4GB DDR3
Carbon Fiber and Aluminum Construction
802.11b/g/n and 100/1000
Premium Carbon Fiber Casing
DVD Burner
Genuine Windows 7 and Great Battery
Also has 2 or 3 years of extended accidental warranty.

I figure somebody here has to know what this may be worth...

Lol @ this price...it has intel graphics. I would try ebay with a reserve you feel comfortable with.

but srsly 4300 when? in 1998?

Very nice tho, I like it because it looks like a laptop for people who hate apple fanboys but appreciate a nice sleek laptop.

Lol nooo. I would have been nuts to buy that one! That's a couple of addons more than my model. That one has dual ssds in raid 0 and a slimline bluray burner.

Mine was a little under 2500 with the warranty, memory upgrade, and carbon fiber casing. I bought it in Dec 09 to burn through a tech budget.

Perhaps that will give a better idea of what it may be worth today...

A brand new Dell Adamo with better CPU and 128GB SSD cost $800 these days. I know this VAIO and the Adamo is not exactly the same thing, but I think their target market is somewhat similar so it should give you a clue.

The current VAIO Z series, which is also ultra portable though larger than this one, is not that expensive with more current and powerful hardware.

Personally I think you maybe able to sell it around $900-1000, but it will probably take some time.

Perfect. I was hoping to get around a grand for it.

It is a shame Sony doesn't make anything like the TT anymore. I love my Z but the build quality is kinda cheap compared to my previous T series laptops (especially the TT). Can't complain though. Core i7 in the Z form factor is ssaaawwweeettt.

Thanks for everyone's input. Reps+ to all.
