They only make them in Silver and Black, but a quick websearch found several "skins" that are available for this model that can alter the color.

If you go to the sony website it looks like the pink is only available in the 13" version. It also appears after looking at forums the pink is backordered for awhile.

Question

Cleaning care?

Currently the only issue I've been having is that my fans keep getting my dogs hair stuck in them. Now I can't eliminate dog hair everywhere, and I'm not getting rid of my dog. But I don't want it to overheat because of the hair! Is there a way to prevent hair from getting into the fans on this product I wish to know before I buy it. If there is something to put on them like a dust filter can they do it in stores? Or is there anything built into it?

We have three big dogs. I put an extra large melmac tray under my computer and use it only on that tray. That way the hair doesn't get under it so much. Hope this works for you.

My experience is no. I signed up for the geek squad and they helped me. We could not load the previous version of photoshop elements II so I paid for the latest version from adobe and the geek squad helped download it. I am not as computer saavy as the younger generation so I need help navigating through some of the instructions.

Question

Customizing it

Can I order this with an SSD instead of the HDD pre-installed and can I also ask for the wifi card to be changed to a better one as my only problem that is hindering me from getting this laptop is the wifi problems that I heard about so much from others.

No, you cannot -- Best Buy does not offer pre-purchase hardware customization services, nor is this laptop (SKU #2007005) available with the features you've requested.
