    Try a live CD.

    I've installed it on my wife's Sony Viao (Hardy, then updated since then to the current Karmic) Other then a weird habit of the cursor jumping around while typing (which went away about mid way through Intrepid) everything has worked fine.

    Though due to hardware differences and such in models and years I would also suggest you try a live CD before making any final installation.

    Yes.

    It works perfectly on my particular model of Vaio, but that doesn't mean everything will work satisfactorily on all Vaio models. Sony use as great a range of different hardware as other manufacturers. Vaio is just their brand name - not a model name. As other posters have suggested, try a live CD.
