Hi, I just picked up a Vaio SZ430N as a new notebook. Best Buy had them at deep discount (-$700) since the new replacement model is out. The only difference I could see was the new machine had a T7500 vs. a T7200 chip and had WLAN N vs. G. Oh it was all in black vs. black and silver. At only 4.1 pounds, it seems to a strong all round machine.
Anyway, it has WWAN with a Cingular 30 day trial on it. Is anyone familiar with it? I'm on the road about twice a month for a few days each time. Is it worth messing with? I do have internet access with my Treo through Sprint for "free" that I can patch into via the hotsynch cord. It would be much slicker if I don't have to plug my Treo into the notebook. Are built in WWAN cards the same? Am I stuck with Cingular? Can it be configured to run with Sprint?
There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
