Notebook loss more disappointing than weight gain for half of Australians

Over half (58%) of Australians would prefer to gain ten kilograms than lose their laptop, according to new research from Sony Australia.

The survey, commissioned by Sony Australia, reveals how integral computers have become to everyday life. According to the research, four in five Australian respondents believe photos, videos and other files stored on their computer are more important than love letters or cards. Additionally, 35% of Australians would save their laptop first if they experienced a house fire, compared to 30% who would grab a traditional photo album instead.

The VAIO Notebook Reliability survey also revealed, rather than losing their notebook:

  • Nearly three quarters (72%) would prefer it rained on their wedding day
  • Seven in ten (70%) would prefer to have their eyebrows shaved
  • More than a third (37%) of Australians would rather miss out on a job promotion
