CUDA on Vaio Z-series how to enable CUDA on the Vaio-Geforce 330m

Hi all,
I want to puy a laptop with a cuda-enabled GPU. I am interested in Sony z-series laptops with a Geforce GT 330M video card and windows 7. but I read in many places that it is in deed not CUDA-enabled and the nvidia driver for this processor is not yet relesed. so does anyone of you use this machine to program CUDA?
and any recommendation about another machine are highly appreciated.
Thanks a lot in advance

I have this exact laptop, and I use it for CUDA programming nearly every day. The only downside (as far as GPU concerns go) is that it’s hard to find updated drivers for it; I’m still running 260.99 (or whatever CUDA 3.1 debuted in). Other than that, it’s by far the best developer laptop I’ve ever used.

Thanks a lot. is it CUDA-enabled by default? if not, is it easy to enable CUDA on it?
I really appreciate your help.

Yes, it’s CUDA-enabled by default. You can run CUDA-enabled apps as soon as you turn it on, but you’ll need to download/install the CUDA toolkit and SDK if you also want to develop CUDA apps.

I searched the internet a little bit and found this: http://forum.notebookreview.com/sony/342947-my-discoveries-vaio-z-s-hybrid-graphics.html
I got the 263 version to run on my z13 i7 640m and I am already getting up to 8x speedup in MATLAB, the only problem is that now I can’t change my screen brightness anymore, lol.
