    The E series come in many colors, while the F is (I believe) just black.

    Hi all.

    Im new a the forum and just bought that Vaio EB with Mobility Radeon HD 5650.

    How I can install newer catalysts for that? Those which sony is providing is poor and if I try to install never catalysts from ati site it only installs manager and not drivers or catalyst center.

    Could someone please help me?

    On my laptop, VPCEB17FX, Windows 7 does not always play the "folder open" sound when I double click on the folder. Instead I hear a pop/click in my left side headphone driver. When I click back to back to the previous folder, the same thing sometimes happens. So randomly, sometimes I heard the default sound and sometimes just a pop in my left ear. Does anyone else notice this? Is this a Windows 7 bug? Driver bug? Hardware bug? So annoying..

    Maybe it's been too long since I ordered a PC, but I made the order yesterday for an EB, and was told that it would be ready to ship by 11-15. I checked my account online this morning, and the shipping date was revised to 11-24. I called Sony Customer Care and was told that it would take longer because some components were not in stock. They told me that even the 11-24 ship date was not guaranteed (could be later - or earlier). Is this typical - to be told one shipping date and have it pushed out almost ten days later?

    Yep. That original date is just an average guess by the website, which has no clue about stock. Your new date is probably much more accurate.

    My vpcec was supposed to come two weeks from when I ordered it. But... because I made my order over the phone and said
    "I was told by one of your online reps that by calling I could get a discount" they said they couldn't do that but that they would expedite my shipment. Ordered Friday, got it Monday =p

    You need the raw installer file rather than the downloader

    Hello all,

    Unless I get a mad deal on Asus G73, I am buying a Sony EB soon. However, I cannot decide what configuration to choose.

    I know this might be a wrong forum to post, but I really want feedback from E series owners.

    Spny EB-Prebuilt $885:
    Intel Core i5 460M(2.53GHz)
    15.5" (1366 x 768)
    4GB DDR3
    320GB
    DVD Burner
    Radeon HD 5650

    Sony EB-CTO $1080:
    Intel Core i5 460M(2.53GHz)
    15.5" (1920x1080)
    4GB DDR3
    320GB
    BD-Player
    Radeon HD 5650

    As you can see the difference is screen resolution and the optical drive, well and price obviously . I really do not watch any BD movies. I use laptop with and without an external monitor approx 50/50. So resolution is somewhat important.
    I want to get a BD-Player for only one reason. Later, say 2 years from now, I bet that would make a price difference when I am ready to sell.
    Bottom line is price thought, $200 difference. Are screen and BD worth it?

    Thanks in advance!
