I would like to know as well. The only one I know of and have ever tried is CHC (centrino hardware control). I would like to find a simple program that just controls the fans and shows the temps. I guess i8kfangui does that but unfourtunatly that doesnt work for the 700m.
I used kingmax from newegg as well. 1gig cost me $110 shipped, cant argue with that and that was over a month ago. At one point a couple weeks ago a 1gig stick of kingmax for the 700m was $99 shipped from newegg.
Also, I would extend the warranty to at least a year, cuz you never know what is gonna break, and its not too expensive. I personnaly got a two year on mine.
It uses PC2700 (333Mhz) 200-pin SODIMM. It comes with a base of 256mb and I suggest you get your upgrade RAM from newegg (great prices).
The 700m only has one screen option. It has Dells Trulife which means it is the gloss screen and runs at a resolution of 1280x800.
Hope this helps.
