    I read about the updated BIOS on a dutch forum about the F11. People who send their F back in for a replacement of the motherboard, got it back (after waiting for a month) and the bios was updated. They have to wait so long because the motherboard was in back-order.

    Incidentally, forgive me if this is considered off topic, however here is a scan from a 1999 catalogue showing the ORIGINAL F-series laptop (VPCGF) - My wild guess is that that's why later F's are called the FW when it went widescreen, then F1x for the NEXT followup etc. Since our wonderful i7 instruments are a direct functional successor of the PCGF, still for "editing your videos" and so on, it will therefore always BE the F1xx for this model. Note the different screen sizes and overall thicknesses on the SAME model run.

    The gods have ruled, it will be a mixed thread. :(

    OK. Does anybody knows in which colors the F12 will be available in USA?

    Will they be the same as elsewhere?

    Will the 1080p matte display also be available where I live?

    Will the backlit keyboard also be available where I live?

    Will it have the famous BD sticker? If so, what color?

    Does anybody knows when it will be available?

    Does anybody knows the pricing?

    Does anybody knows if NVIDIA® GeForce® N11P found in the .LU link above means the N11P-GE1 code name for the GT 330M or an other chip?

    Should I sell my F11 NOW @ a better price so I could buy the F12?

    I already hate my F11 and NEED the new F12, is there a remedy?

    Will the drivers be different?

    Will it have the same bloatware?

    How about the BIOS?

    What about the new CPU's?

    Will the fan be different: quieter or noisier?

    What will be the CPU speed on battery?

    Will the Morse code be fixed or play a different tune?

    If you order or pre-order one, could you post a blow by blow of the ordering & delivery process? We NEED to know where your package is @ the present.

    So, is it the same mobo #? Otherwise it's a good way to brick your_F11. Nobody posted mobo # & BIOS #?

    In fact: will there even be a sticker? A remember a post where he paid $6 for one from China, maybe even counterfeit.

    My almost mint F11_BD sticker will be up for sale in a few months. The value can only go up!
