Yeah i'm waiting eagerly as well. Rang Dell last night again asking for it they said you just have to wait for the official release by Dell, from what i gathered there waiting for the official release by Intel to release the merom to the public as of yet you still can't purchase the chip only, but you can buy it pre-installed on a laptop. As for backing up the bios i'm sure some smart person will figure it out on how to back up the bios. It's pretty hard and your normal user can't do it.
