are there display models that you can fiddle with?
if possible could you burn 3dmark 01 and 03 onto a CD and take it into a store and test it
Maybe test it on the A series that is already out with 64MB Radeon 9700 (it should be the same card in the S series)
That's a bummer that it wont be available until the 10th of June... sounds like I might have to get a DELL 8600 as a filler till then
What I am most concerned with these VAIO S is the video performance (if it claims ATI 9700 it should be at least 390 core/200 memory which shoud give at least 9700+ 3dmark01 and 2600+ 3dmark03 scores... acceptable for gaming at 1024x768 resolutions)
