    Do you use Gomplayer for all media? Is it better than the Power DVD that was pre-loaded?

    Cool! I'm glad I sent mine back. Would be nice if they'd upgrade the cooling and add a quadcore, also a non fingerprint version lid :)

    Well I think even the current SXPS 16 will take a quad core if someone puts it in. As long as the bios recognizes it there shouldn't be much of an issue since it uses the PM45 chipset.

    Just updated to the new A08 Bios.

    First my screen was flickering and I couldn't control the brightness but now it looks like it is all okay. The major improvement I can see is that the fan is spinning faster. I think they try to improve the cooling. Normally the fan stopped when temps where under 40c, now it keeps going.

    Great find. It's a good thing I didn't listen to that guy complaining about us getting rid of our laptops to wait. :rolleyes:

    Damn right, I cancelled my SXPS 16 order two days after I placed the order (about two weeks ago) after reading the improvements in the BIOS update. How pissed would I be now if I didn't cancel it?

    Can you hear the fan under normal operations? How many rpms is it usually at?

    Personally I never really liked Power DVD... I started using Gom yesterday, and until now it's been holding up really well. I played some heavy stuff on it without any problems. It also looks much better than WMP Classic (pretty much like any other program would) and have many features to choose from. :D
    Go for it!
