The Lan internet one will, but you need to get most of the rest off the gateway site.

well i figured it out, if anyone is have sd dvd playback image quality issues this might help. when i play a sd dvd using wmp i get a fuzzy image because the aspect ratio of the 1440x900 screen is 16:10 so the dvd image is being stretched. ok now here is the fix, using vlc player you can go to video tab and change the aspect ratio that the video is playing in. this will allow you to change the video for the best quality.

Anyone know of newer drivers for the LAN internet? I have been having some trouble with it lately.

The HDD swap would be easy, just make sure you have your OS install cd and drivers ready. I think these laptops can take the T9300 just fine, I'm not sure about anything higher though. I don't think you can add more ram, they max out at 4 GB.
