To change the extent of chipset support wouldn't Sony have to produce a different motherboard, and if so wouldn't this be less cost effective? I mean swapping the ram out for 400 vs the S92's 533 was predictable but actually changing the hdd interface and or sound configuration?! I really hope someone buys this soon and posts a review or the Sony site can offer a detailed specification sheet because as far as Sonoma notebooks go, this one is on my purchasing list. Man, you'd think that Sony would anticipate a potential customer wanting to know if something as simple as the drive interface.
I noticed they did add details for the go 6200 and now state the gpu ram amt.
If you care to read this PDF in Sony websitehttp://www.sonystyle.com/intershopro...0_CTO_spec.pdf
You will find that it states clearly S380 uses Serial ATA HDD.
If you care to read this HTML in Sony Japanhttp://www.vaio.sony.co.jp/Products/VGN-S72PB/spec.html
You will find that S92 uses DDR2 400 MHz RAM, just like the S380.
It probably doesn't solve the audio problem for sure, and someone should definitely ask Sony to clarify that, but chances are S380 and S92 are identical, except the silver exterior.
