I just replaced a Fujitsu Lifebook (Transmeta 733, 256mb ram, 40gb disk)
about the same physical size as the Sony (I looked at the sony at the time).

I ran Fedora Core 3/6 on this for 3+ years without any real fuss, had
hibernate/suspend working and wifi(both prism & atheros) working at
various times.  Performance should be similar to mine, but with less
ram.  If you can upgrade the ram do so, slow downs were mostly ram/swap
related (I ran full blown KDE 3.5.8 without gnome).  

If you end up using linux check out the Tux-on-ice (ie software-suspend2)
tools (you can find packages for most distros if you look).
