SONY Vaio VGN-FJ68GP/W @ laptop.com.au $1599

This is a good deal on this laptop. Lower spec'd ones are selling in the region of $1800 - $1900.

May be a grey import as these guys seem to deal in a few of them and the warranty will be with laptop and not with the manufacturer. Also watch as the description says 'factory recertified' whatever that means. Anyone who knows please give us feedback.

    Any idea if you can ring to get an idea if it's a grey import?

    Factory recert will just mean an authorised service center has either fixed it or reviewed it and then sent it back out. Can be hit and miss depending on the manufacturer and how strict they are with recerts.

    thanks for that jumpingjack. I figured it was some form of refurb. You can call them on 0394214388. These guys seem to sell a lot of refurb / grey units . They tout on their site that they've sold 20,000 laptops but you never can trust merchants marketing. I dont have any feedback to give on their service levels but will see if I can find some for you.
