Notebook - Current Special

E-mail Print PDF

We have a handsome new 'special purchase' notebook PC that will interest price-sensitive customers.  The 'special' is a 15" wide-screen model...the most popular size.  (17" special also available)  It is necessary to purchase the extended warranty, as the markup is so slim that our distributor will only offer these prices on these quality notebooks with the inclusion of the extended warranty. Image

As always, with any computer by Sonora Communications, these notebooks are custom built to your specifications.  Please ask for any change in the configuration you desire and we will accommodate if at all possible, or suggest a different model with the features you want.

We will pre-install Linux and even set you up with dual-boot Windows/Linux if you wish.

Why purchase a cheap notebook from a mail-order place when you can buy quality portable computers with local support at prices like these?

Delivery

We are generally able to deliver in about 5 business days with ground shipping.  Faster delivery available at a slight extra cost.
