New m9700 mobo: $600
New AMD Turion x2: $250
AW required Vista upgrade: $300 (you know they're not gonna put xp back on there...)
NOT Having your $4000 laptop for 8 weeks while it sits and collects dust waiting for the repair/upgrade guys to get around to it and then scratch your case, crack the mobo on install, repack with Jack-in-the-box napkins, gets lost and damaged during shipping all so you can get a better score in 3Dmark06... priceless
