    Has anyone pre-ordered it yet? I've just placed an order today, for the 13-inch version in silver with i5, 8GB RAM & 256GB SSD. Got 4-year warranty for £0.01 and free Ethernet-to-wifi adapter and HDMI-to-VGA adapter. Besides, I got 7% student discount & will get further £70 cashback for going through Quidco. :)

    I hope it doesn't suffer from the wifi issues Pro 13 had, which made me return it.

    Yes, I got the free 4-year warranty too. Interestingly, I've been given a delivery date of 15th - 30th October!

    Wait, the Flips are available for preorder? That's awesome! Where? How much are they asking? Last I heard they'd only released prices in Japan and weren't taking orders yet.

    In Finland too: I just preordered my SVF13N1C5E (13,3" i5-4200U / 8GB / 256SSD) and got the free 4-year warranty :)
    I need new laptop and this seems to be good choice to me.

    Same spec as mine, Silver for me. 4 year warranty a very nice bonus IMO. Just wish they'd hurry up and deliver it now! Ment to be before the 23rd for me, we'll see...

    Predordered as well. i7, 256GB, 8GB. Should be there around 22-23.10
    Hope there is not too much fan noise and that the battery is good enough for at least 7h office work.

    I take silver.
    You are right. Warranty wasn't free. It cost same 0,01€ here too :)

    There was a little bug in Finnish Sony Store: At the second page was "Ethernet Wi-Fi- and VGA-adapter" -option price: free. But when added to the basket, total sum raises 60,00 eur...

    A tip for your next purchase : Always call them and buy the laptop, I did that and got a discount of 50€.

    Just simply make a phone call to SONY and ask to buy a Vaio, at the end of the purchase ask a discount and they will do it. It worked for me.

    Now I just have to wait like everyone else here ;(, except the guy from the video ;)

    Im in Sweden and preordered yesterday. No delivery until dec :-(
    15 inch multiflip
    i7 , 512 SDD , 16GB RAM , GE force 2 GIG 2880x1620 LED
    I was hoping to use the grafics card for an external monitor too but then I heard that HDMI only supports 1080P. This laptop doesn't seem to have any other ports so I guess I will never be able to use any high end monitors.

    I was looking at the Samsung 27 inch LED Syncmaster S27B970 2560 x 1449 it has DVI display port and HDMI. I confirmed with Samsung support that the HDMI in will only take 1920 x1080.
    So since there are no laptops with DVI that leaves display port and I don't know what the limit is on that but my Sony won't have it anyway. Well I'm not willing to wait until a better laptop comes out because my old Dell is about to die any day so I guess I will have to settle for a 1080 27" monitor .On the upside it will be about half the price of the Samsung. I was thinking about the LG 27" IPS LED 27EA63V.
    I just have to confirm it is HDCP compliant I saw a review that said it wasn't but the US website says it is. Without HDCP the monitor would be useless for PS3 etc.

    Thoughts on if these upgrades are worth it for the US config? Planning to keep machine for a long time..

    i5-4200U-->i74500U = $150
    256GB SSD SATA-->PCIe = $150
    128gb to 256gb is a steep $200 already...

    Also, fyi, picking the AC wireless option adds 2 weeks to shipping estimate =/
