Very Nice :)
For me the Vaio range always smacked of quality build and looked so good.

Nice rig, Sgthawker !

My former recording secretary owned a Sony Vaio - it never left her side.  Great little laptop !  A quality build, as zebedeeboss says.

She never turned her Vaio off, actually.  It was either being used, or it was in 'suspend' mode. 

Winders user, of course, but we won't hold that against her ...   :)
