The VPCEG25FD is a mid-range laptop, with a 2-core, 4-thread i5 CPU, a respectable amount of RAM and storage, and a HDMI output.

I installed Debian from a CD image written to a USB drive and current mirrors as of 2011-12-20 (Wheezy). The kernel version is 3.0.0-1-amd64. Everything I needed works well out of the box.

Tech specs: Intel Core i5 2430M at 2.4 GHz (see cpuinfo), 6 GB RAM, 14-inch LED-lit LCD with a native resolution of 1366x768 and an Intel HD 3000 graphics accelerator, 640 GB HDD (Toshiba), DVD writer, SD/MS reader, Bluetooth, 4 USB 2.0 ports, mini-jack analog audio I/O, webcam. See Sony's description, lspci -vvv.
