I did already know all of above, but thanks for caring.
My aim to begin with was that because noone really knew what the facts where, I wanted to do a unbiassed research.
Now that's just wrong.
unbiassed research? Noone knew what the facts where?.
you yourself said you are aware of there could be HW issues, but you didn't buy the reason that the motherboard is under spec given by Adam, AW, SAGER, and CLEVO.
Adam, AW, Sager and Clevo, never said the 64mb 5xxx would have HT when the system was released, well AW did and they are paying the price for that doing motherboard swaps.
you were able to join the two bios together, you think Clevo couldn't do it? or know how to enable HT in the BIOS? now the question here is IF there are Hardware issues due to under spec and it doesn't pass QC, what reason would they have to release a HT enabled bios?
this is also seen offen on desktop motherboard and many other hardwares. where exact models would have REV: 1.4x not supporting one thing while REV: 1.5x does. or even products sold before 10/4/03 doesn't but product after 10/5/03 does.
Maybe they should tell us that YES we can enable HT for you but your computer could BLOW UP after 6 months or crash every time you render a real time movie. so use at your own risk warranty void!
anyway it's nice you got your HT enabled and i bet very happy with it, but i think your attitude at this shouldn't be that Clevo or their resellers has tried to cheat you to force you to buy a new laptop, but something like "WOOHOOO!! i got HT on my 5600 and they said it couldn't be done!!" anyone else want it? use at your own risk you might destroy your laptop!!
