I love my Z70V! Check my review here... (the webserver has been up and down all day, so it might be hit or miss at the moment, sorry)
Pentium M 1.73ghz
1gb Kingston PC4200 533mhz RAM
80gb Seagate Momentus 5400.2...
I installed the Omega drivers and went up to 515/285, and it's been stable so far. I went from 1142 to 1412 in 3dMark05. I think my results should be somewhat helpful due to having the same video card as the W3V.
I have the same version of that drive in my Z70V, only in 80gb. It's a pretty good drive. Much quieter than the Toshiba 5400rpm that I had in my old computer. My HD temps hover in the mid to upper 40's....
The Intel utility should work fine. What drivers are you trying to install? I'm running XP Pro with SP2 and my wireless works great using the software that came with my Z70V. You should also be able to get it off of Intel's website.
