I don't think ASUS soldered the CPU for this one.. but I believe only Low-voltage and Ultra-Low voltage Centrino CPUs are soldered onto the motherboard... I'm sure you could upgrade to Dothan if you want to but ASUS will avoid the 2yrs...
Congrats~!!~ You've got a nice lappy man..
Can I ask you couple of questions? How's fan noise and other?
Because I had T40p laptop before, and I had noise problems which are CPU fan and high-pitch noise.
Is it made in Hong Kong?
I'm wondering how is quality of the screen (such as brightness, contrast, and etc.).
Is there any noise (high pitch sound) and any heating problems?
I'm looking forward to see the pictures and full review of this laptop.
Thanks jman. =)
