Sony Rolls Back Fresh Start Program Charges

The Japanese electronics giant Sony has stepped back by dropping Sony Vaio Notebookcharges for its ‘Fresh Start’ program, and gives way to its customers.

Previously, Sony had made announcement that the buyers configure-to-order (CTO) versions of its high-end ‘Vaio TZ2000’ and ‘Vaio TZ2500’ laptops will have to pay $50 for each laptop computer delivered without bloatware. This option of the notebook without bloatware is called ‘Fresh Start.’

After receiving a big disapproval on the matter, Sony has now decided to rolls back the additional charges for bloatware free notebooks.

In a statement, Sony said, “We want Vaio users to have the best experience possible with our PCs, and we believe Fresh Start will help ensure that happens right out-of-the-box.”

With this Fresh Start program, buyers of Vaio TZ2000 and Vaio TZ2500 will be able to dispose of VAIO-specific programs, games and other trial softwares.

Presently, the Vaio TZ2000 and Vaio TZ2500 laptops are available at a starting price of $3,050 and $1,900 respectively. Prices may vary according to the configuration chosen.
