I second that.
The Sony C1 Picturebook is the best notebook that ever was or ever will be.
My 3-year old C1VFK just developed a hard-disk fault,
and I'm desperately looking for a 1.0-techie guy to change it for me.
I opened the back, and it's like looking into a baby's brain.
Fortunately I bought a cheap replacement on EBay with a strange fault -
it thinks it is being charged even when the charger is disconnected.
There is a list of films the C1 has played a role in somewhere,
as well as beautiful people who have one.
Sadly, the species is now endangered, as the screen is no longer made.
Surely no-one ever said, "Would you like to see my Dell laptop"?
