Hiya, I work for Comet and am in charge of the Grey Goods Department, Sony Vaio Desktops have been very succesful, and personally I like the machines myself (as i type on my Vaio laptop) there has been no returns so far, however the 122 doesn't have a Memory Stick reader, however does have a DVD-R and a fantastic array of software for example Click to DVD a one touch DVD recorder...Fantastic
I have a Sony Vaio RX203 been using it for 18 months without problem.
Be aware however, that sony do not supply an XP Cd and their installation does not include the windows extra's like Backup. If you require these you have to buy XP a second time for its current full price.
Well, to be perfectly frank, retailers like Comet get all their backup and help from Sony, the reason being in the good old days, customers used to return their computers saying it had a fault and we'd replace it, that unit would go back to Sony (or relevant manufacturer) and then there would be simple software issues and the company would be charged. The other thing since windows ME was released all manufacturers certainly that Comet sell, do not provide full copies of OS. The reason for this was obvious, no counterfeit. If you are really worried about "backup" either use system restore or buy a copy of Nortons Ghost. any more questions just drop me a line at johnnie_mcdougall at hotmail
