I had my VAIO VGN-FE31H for one week before it completely failed.
Sony told me to send it back to them. Long story short - it took them a month to get a new one back to me.
Within a very short space of time the print button came off. The memory card interface has never worked and actually locks-up XP whenever you insert a card into it.

Prior to XP SP3 I had to disable the built in camera in order for the sound card to work.

Most of the time Windows works well but it has to be the flakiest laptop I have ever owned.
On every occasion I have tried to make a video with Windows Movie Maker it locks up.

In case you wondered - yes I do regularly clean-up the operating system but it has never made the machine any more reliable.

I shall be going back to Dell in future.

Looks good but doesn't hit the mark where it matters, i.e. usability and reliability.
