For the ebay idea, i was talking about pulling the 1.7 and putting it on ebay, then buying a 2.0 from newegg or something similar. Just the processor, not the whole laptop =)
Ohh and for the record, i do feel your pain. My 3790 was delivered 10/14, just 2 days before the price cuts. I probably would have gotten a 2.0 if i would have waited, but at this point its no big deal. I can buy one in a few months if i feel i need to upgrade.
