    Default Sony Vaio CA Official Owners' Thread

    The CA is now available to order. This is the owners' thread for prospective owners and owners of the 14.1 Vaio CA.

    Just ordered a VPCCA190X with the i5 2540M, 6630M GPU and the 900p screen, will be here in 5 to 7 days. Crossing fingers they are not using the same display from the CW series.

    Tailgunner, that's the same as my order, if you got it in black. I did not choose to upgrade the memory though, I can do that for $80 from newegg/amazon and then sell my existing sticks.

    I got it in white. I actually configured the notebook with the base 4 GB of RAM and the 320 GB hard drive. I have a pair of 4 GB DDR3-1333 RAM sticks sitting around and I just picked up a 160 GB OCZ Vertex 2 SSD for it. Other than the underclocked GPU and a possibly disappointing 900p screen, this notebook is the closest I've seen to my ideal notebook.

    I ordered on 3/14 and I got Fedex tracking information on 3/25. It's being shipped directly from China.

    Even I ordered on March 14th but the order status still shows as "being built". It shows the estimated shipping date to be 03/29. When is yours due to arrive?

    It shipped really fast. I have my Vaio CA in my hands already and it looks good in black:

    The AMD Catalyst control center is missing many options, such as gpu information and overclocking. How can I enable them?
    The screen looks fine by the way, not on par with the best screens, but definitely better than the 768p screen on my 13" Asus.

    I am absolutely hating the software on this thing with regards to switchable graphics. Every time I need to run something, I have to specify whether it is intel or amd graphics, what a POS. I don't want any settings for applications. I just want a PHYSICAL BUTTON to turn graphics on or off, that's it.
    Ridiculous that they can't get such a basic feature right. AMD sucks.
