    Awesome VAIO Handbook

    After getting this book I was impressed with the hints and other helpful info provided! VAIO has been on a rise as a computer brand and a lot of its owners do not realize and use the features, bells and whistles that come packed in their VAIOs. Tom's book has nice descriptions and images of using VAIO Media, Giga Pocket and other software. Also XP tweaks are discussed in the book that will make your VAIO safer. VAIO has been an eye-catching brand and a PC, because Sony really spends a lot time in designing the 'face' of its PCs, just take a look at its newer series like TR, A, Z1 and upcoming S series notebook or older Picturebooks, NV, 505 series notebooks and striking functionality and design of W, MXS, LX series! This book is a great source for those who are considering getting a VAIO as well. Meet with your VAIO again!

    GOT a VAIO? Get this Book!

    The VAIO series have always had enough specialty, proprietary, components and software that this walk through 'primer' is a must have for those trying to get the most out of these high end, cutting edge systems. Simple yet thorough solutions for these complex machines. Easy to follow, diagrams, 'how to's' ... and resources to guide you through the VAIO experience.
