My VGN-TT has broken twice. The right screen hinge with power button fell apart, Sony blamed it on me and wanted to charge me for the repair. They finally agreed to fix it and sent it back to me with a broken left hinge! The laptop also has diagonal stripes running across the screen they cannot fix. I had a Vaio VGN-TZ before which was infinitely more solid. Save your money.
My power button broke and fell off when I was on vacation in Florida last April causing a major upset in my plans (I had work to do!) and just yesterday it fell off again. So irritating! I can't afford to be without my machine while they fix it. I am just going to try to leave it on all the time and not turn it off. This WAS a very expensive laptop and now I wish I had bought a Dell. Next time that's what I'm doing. The power button on this thing is too delicate and I am always careful about how I handle this machine!
