You may have a hard time finding an Athlon XP 2400+ processor or nForce2-based motherboard from your local retailer or favorite online shop, but you can always buy one of Sony's Vaio PCV-RXA842s to scratch that itch. Sony's new Vaio looks like the first mainstream desktop PC to pair AMD's fastest available processor with the current Socket A chipset performance king.
Update: It looks like C|Net's story, which mentions nForce2 several times, doesn't agree with Sony's spec sheets. According to Sony, the PCV-RXA842 uses the original nForce chipset.
