I have gotten my laptop, Sony Vaio Pro, all the way from Amazon US. I have been wanting to create some post on it but couldn’t find some time to fit in my busy schedule just yet. I will post it hopefully before the year ends.
Been using it for awhile now, while it has been doing pretty awesome for me, there are some slight issues with it here and there. One of it is with the screen. It flickers occasionally and it happens when the power cable was unplugged. It didnt happen if the power source is on.
I’ve searched around and manage to find out having lowered the screen refresh rate would help in which, it did for me. Another setting which might also contributes the issue is the power options. You might want to configure it to “High Performance”. In case you have the auto-brightness detect option turned on, it could also be another culprit that keeps your screen flicker.
Hope those helps!
Just so you followed my post previously on purchase of Kindle Paperwhite from Amazon that I used Vpost as courier service, here’s another update which I think close to delivery, tomorrow the latest I guess. It’s currently trackable from poslaju using the same Item No or Vpost ID. The last status update that I posted was on “Depart from S`pore Airport Processing Ctr” tracked in VPostAsia site (16/10/2013 05:45:52 PM). Then there wasn’t any indication of the status for it. A quick search on Google, some proceeded to Speedpost to track the item location/status progress. I did the same and it shows more update:
19/10/2013 02:45 Handover to Airline
18/10/2013 23:20 Acknowledged at Transit Centre
18/10/2013 14:31 Processing at Air Transit Center
18/10/2013 09:35 Processing at Sorting Centre
12/10/2013 15:13 Shipment ready
And a little curious how it goes with “Handover to Airline”, I try my luck on track the item in PosLaju and using the same Vpost ID (EVXXXXXXXXXSG) in hope there’s some news over there and YES, there is which did not get reflected on other site (VPOST/Speedpost). Here’s the progress if you are interested:
21-Oct-2013 11:42:37 Departure from inward OE/Send item to domestic location POS MALAYSIA INTERNATIONAL HUB (KLIA)
21-Oct-2013 10:48:31 Arrived at inward OE/Receive item at OE POS MALAYSIA INTERNATIONAL HUB (KLIA)
18-Oct-2013 18:11:00 Departure from outward OE
I guess it would take another day to reach the processing center (the district center), before despatching to the destination. Keeping my finger crossed I’ll be getting the parcel late today or tomorrow. Will post some unbox-ing photos if time permits.
