Why do we recommend Dell over Sony? Part 2

How much?!

A client ordered this replacement part directly from Sony.  How much do you think it cost?  It is a tiny plastic switch that turns wireless on and off, located on the front of the laptop.

Would you believe $66?!  There’s nothing electronic about it, nothing gold-plated, it’s simply a little piece of plastic that says “wireless” on it.

Thanks to Dell’s market share, replacement laptop parts are often available through third parties which makes them much cheaper.  Unforunately, pricing like this is typical of Sony.  And guess how long it will take to install that small piece…
