At UKUUG 2005 I met someone who has ... it's best described as the sexiest Sony Vaio I've ever encountered. They happily run FC 3 on it. They reported no installation problems, having installed by CD off a PCMCIA IDE device (!) which is supplied as standard. (Note: I had one of these CDROM-PCMCIA-IDE devices with my Sony Vaio PCG Z600-HEK four years ago, and I had awful trouble booting a Debian/Woody CD off it, because on the Z600 it showed up as a non-standard IDE port address. This was fixed by a kernel boot param which I've since forgotten :) This device weighs in at ONE KILO, and when closed is no thicker than about 1.5cm. The battery lasts two hours, it's a 1024x768 12in screen. PCMCIA. S400 Firewire. Two full-size USB. One tiny adaptor into which an external dongle can be connected for 10/100 Ethernet. Supplied as standard you get an 802.11g Atheros Wireless PCMCIA card. Did I say it's possibly the sexiest computers running Linux? I did, didn't I. It has only _one_ downside: a 20Gb drive.

What can i say. I Want One.
