Contact Sony, or better yet your lawyer.

well.. if the model numbers aren't any form of indication...
the 6400 is roughly equal to the X600 which is roughly equal to the MR9700, which is the video card in the sony S2xx and S3xx.
The reason the S4xx series wasn't well recieved was because of 1) heat 2) reduction of battery life. 3) downgraded GPU.
With the 6400, Sony is now back up to where it was with the S3xx series.
