    1) Sony Vaio TZ VGN-TZ270N/B

    2) Brand New, in box, never been used, 2 year warranty included (not refurb or recall, just given as a gift)

    Sony TZ270N/B

    3) No images yet, just a price check, can take pictures of sealed box once I receive it. Not for sale anywhere under 2400 new, curious if I can sell the new one and the laptop to fund purchase of a TT.

    4) If I were to trade I would be looking for a Blu Ray Equipped TT, in any color.

    5) Paypal, cash in person (Located in MA at the moment, but occasionally in IL)

    6) Local/Overseas. FedEx, UPS, only after payment clears/confirmed.

    7) Setting up eBay account soon, but have sold on this forum before with positive results.

    8) Loved my TZ150, when it broke my family got me the TZ270, not knowing that there was a new model out, so I'm just selling it without opening it, to get a TT. Any questions, feel free to ask.

    Dunno if bumping is allowed here? But I'll push it up. I really would rather sell this laptop and accessories, than have to open it since I need a computer in the next couple weeks. Anyone interested/have an idea what I should be asking for?

    It is very hard to estimate price on the smaller laptops. They are also hard to sell, because its such a niche market. Most people who will shell out for a smaller machine will also shell out for full price.

    Well looking at eBay, $1200-1500. $1200 were tz240 with lower specs. A tz290 with lower specs sold around $1400.

    No, its where a seller doesnt want to price something too high, and spend weeks trying to sell it at an overinflated price for no reason. Wasting your time and mine. So I posted it since the present price for new tz270's online is from 2000-2400, and I have a plethora of extras with it since I will be upgrading.

    I wouldnt have minded your comment, if you had constructive criticism, or even a price to suggest. Thanks for taking the time to come in and leave your 2 cents when I just asked for reasonable prices.

    Nice little laptop, I would say $1,700 is reasonable. Good luck!

    I think I saw one on here for $1100 last month. Though that might have been a TZ170 instead of a 270 (don't really know the difference specwise, but the 270 is newer).

    seeing how it's 1999 brand new off sony's site, you would facotr in the fact that it's old technology and the buyer can't return it if found defective, I would stake it around ~1600.
