    now its just worth nothing lol
    cost me 900 bucks refurb

    Sony Vaio PCV-RS630G

    3.2GHZ Pentium 4 HT
    512MB RAM
    SoundMAX digital audio
    ATI Radeon 9200-128mb

    does the combo drive burn cds?
    and would it be hard for me to replace it with a superdrive

    Doerr,

    I have a Vaio if interested. 80g HD/ 1.5g intel / 1g ram

    Best screen on the market. Only Windows machine I'd have. Vaio = top of the food chain.

    Doesn't have the processor punch of ank's, but it's a nice machine that still brings more than a Rev A MacBook.

    Is this a Core 2 Duo?

    Nope, I didn't want one in a windblows machine, they are useless IMO. I've never used the second core in anything personally, most programs aren't designed to take advantage of multiple cores. It's just as fast as my Rev A Macbook on anything. 2nd core without multiplex programs = useless.

    it's actually not slower at all it seems a tad faster than my rev a. And since it is not a sata hd you can stick 500mb in it for less than $50
