That's not to say that it's going to look crappy; it just won't look as good as it could have looked. But then again, unless you're a real video snob, you might not even be able to tell the difference.
As for Powernotebooks not being able to upgrade it, I'm not buying it. Maybe the case they're using is different than what Hypersonic is using, but the motherboard is identical. If it's got an MR9700, then it's also got a DV connector on the MB.
If they're not going to retrofit the case, then I guess there's not much you can do about it. If it's going to be a showstopper for you, I'd suggest shopping elsewhere. Otherwise, chalk it up to "you get what you pay for" .
