    ***BREAKING NEWS***


    8 April 2009, W90VP-A1 Review

    http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=370294


    8 May 2009, From the News Wire Desk of Ken Lee, GenTech Computers.

    It's OFFICIAL folks! The W90Vp is NOT limited to a mere 6GB of DDR2 memory!

    Today, Ken Lee tested my Patriot 4GB memory modules, and is happy to report, a stable W90Vp with 8GB of DDR2 ram.

    BUT, it gets better! Ken then placed one of the original Hynix 2GB modules in the third remaining memory slot, and BINGO..... a stable 10GB DDR2 W90Vp!

    Ken further believes this notebook should easily handle 3 of these Patriot 4GB modules, so it appears the W90Vp is going be a 12GB DDR2 powerhouse!

    Test Memory (found fully compatible & stable):

    Patriot Signature 4GB 200-Pin DDR2 SODIMM DDR2-800 (PC2-6400) Laptop Memory, Part#: PSD24G8002S

    ***UPDATE***

    13 May 2009, Fellow NBR member and W90Vp-X1 owner, mkinasz, installed and tested 3 sticks of this Patriot memory..... and reports the following:

    (RE: page# 652, post# 6513 - Screenshots on page# 653, post# 6525)

    Awaiting further testing and reporting from Ken Lee at GenTech, confirming 12GB compatibility and stability.

    Nah, as much as respect this machine, I'm actually gonna stick with my current system for a while. What I'm waiting for is a 17 inch system with a Lucid Hydra chip and OC support for the CPU. I'm a big guy, but an 18.4 inch notebook would just be too big for me.

    Anyways, this is all about you now. You said you are an owner, so let's see some CPUz, GPUz, HWmonitor screenshots and some test runs.

    Go.

    Btw, I just checked out Newegg.com, which has it on sale already and the price for the X1, for what it's worth, is phenomenal. $2200 basically for a T9600 + these cards...it's even a better bargain than the M17/Whitebook/W840 given the specs.

    I never would have thought a high end Asus would have such a price per performance ratio.
