    I am unaware of any Turbo Boost driver. I only know T-B is working because of a desktop widget telling me it is. It's bumping my i7 over 3 when video editing and rendering.

    You have never seen driver problems until you have dealt with a Gateway.

    For now, I'm just living with it.
    It doesn't bother me that much.

    I haven't received mine yet so I can't compare. Sounds somewhat normal, as long as it isn't ear splitting loud. Think about when you plug headphones into something and it makes a crackle as the power starts to flow through. Must just be the same effect.

    Could be that this happens with most/all audio devices and manufactures disipate it by turning the device on and then normalizing the volume split seconds later.

    Does anyone have a good cooler for this? I'm tempted to buy a couple different ones and run some tests but I don't really want to spend the money and probably don't have the time. I've previously used a Zalman NC2000 with my 17'' pavillion and it has done well. Being two years old I don't think it does quite a good enough job anymore and before I spend another $60 (yep they are pricey) it would be nice to know.

    The laptop phyiscally feels cooler plus the internal fan can stay off so it is still quieter. Also I used to notice fps improvements playying wow while using it. Maybe I just need to vaccume out some of the hair and it will come back to life.

    Thanks

    Also it provides a bit of a tilt (i believe like 7 degrees) which is nice.

    Disadvantage is that the fan intake is on the bottom so when you are sitting in bed it doesn't pull as much air. I somewhat fixed this by keeping it on a food service tray which has some gaps. Don't think it is quite as good as being on a desk but it is obviously better than having the air intake be completely blocked, or worse the laptop sitting directly on the bed.

    There are lots of notebook comparison reviews, just google . The zalman nc2000 is regarded as one of the best (if not the best)
