Great list you have going here. I think you might also add the Asus TravelMate 8003LMi:

I've been reading these forums and shopping around for a notebook for over a year and I'll probably finally take the plunge after the first batch of Dothan machines is released. Assuming these models all become available with Dothan chips, these are the 3 machines I'm considering:
Asus TM 8003LMi
It might be nice to expand this ODM list to add known issues for each machine and whether fixes are available or not. For example, I've read about the backlight issue on the Compal CL56 and the fan noise and BIOS issues with the Voodoo m:460 (fixed in the newer G556e?).
I also have a couple specific questions for owners of the G556e and CL56 (I don't think anyone has the 8003LMi yet):
1) How is the SXGA+ screen? Specifically, are there ghosting issues and how is the viewing angle when you tilt the screen back and forth? If anyone has had a chance to compare the G556e and CL56 screens side-by-side, how do they compare?
2) For gaming, do either of these machines have multiple key-press issues? I seem to remember reading about some other notebook keyboards that have problems with certain games when you're pressing more than one key at the same time.
