    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.
