Sony Computers Sans Crapware

Sony Charges $50 Extra to Sell You Laptop with No Crapware: How nice of Sony to sell you a computer that’s not pre-loaded with crap…for an extra $50.

“System optimization service” is what we’re calling a computer that comes without crapware. And by characterizing hard drive space as “valuable” and memory in need of conservation, Sony is effectively digging its own grave. I mean, do they not see that consumers notice this? If this new $50 feature “maximizes system performance,” then what does that imply of all the Sony laptops sold before it?
