This forum for discussing laptop installation issues and available enhancements to the system. I have a Vaio VGN SZ 450 N and I trust that many of the solutions I found are applicable to the SZ series and laptops in general.
Some of the important topics are:
graphics with dual card nvidia and intel
memory card reader
sound and controls
All of the above work well on my vaio after proper configuration.
Currently I'm running Ubuntu 8.04.
