I've had three Vaios over the last five years ( this might be a
testament to their robustness, but only one died and that as a result of
a mishap.) They've all run various linux distributions and one of the
surviving ones dual-boots with win XP. 

The current one (a VGN-N31) all the devices work fine with the exception
of the SD card reader and that probably because I can't be arsed to get
it to work.
