Hey guys.


I need a laptop and like the bigger screen and better price on this Vaio more than the macbook:


Link to Vaio at Best Buy


I read that ethernet and sound sometimes doesn't work. Is there a sure way to get ethernet and sound to work on it if I run osx86 on it or would this be a risky buy?


Thank you.

Why not buy a mac book instead? It 100% compatible and for the same price and has better options (except for the screen size). It also supports windows (and maybe linux in the future).

Meh, get the MacBook, much better idea, better futureproofing as well.

AFAIK Sony Vaio notebooks are not much cheeper. I think you should get a Mac Book (Pro) from Apple, so that you have full compatibly with OS X and as an alternative Windows.

The way I see it.. I could get this much more without paying anymore if I go with the Vaio though:


512mb more ram

2 more inches of screen size

40bg more hard drive space


Don't get me wrong.. I would love to get a MacBook and I know it would be better, but I only have around $1100 to spend. Do you think ethernet or sound would be an issue if I did in fact get the Vaio?


wireless will not work, you will need to get a extra minipci dell truemobile thing


So basically I can spend an extra $20-$30 for internet to work?


.. and this dell device will work on the Vaio?
