"Centrino" is not specific enough, there were different generations of the Centrino platform, each had different hardware. Some will work very well, others won't.

You need to find out which generation Centrino platform your Sony laptop is based on. Educate yourself: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centrino

Apple used the "Santa Rosa" platform in their MacBooks for a while so that particular Centrino generation is very compatible.

If your laptop uses the "Montevina" (2008) platform you're out of luck, there are no drivers for Intel 4500 video.
