Toshiba A100 Or A105 S Series Notebooks

Anybody here own a Toshiba A100/A105 Sxxxx series notebook to share upgradability experiences. I have an older A105-S model with T2600 and nVidia GO 7600 and want to know what is the best or modern GPU and CPU it will take, BIOS wize.

I have available to me a nVidia 8600GT-M 512 and T7600 to use on it if there or the A105 BIOS will take it so I can run XP Pro x64 and use my spare DDR800 of 2x 2gb RAM stepped back to cl4 as DDR667.

RAM I dont really need the full 4gb so will it beifit me to set "MAXMEM" switch to 3gb but remain in dual channel so I can still get full Hibernate functon support?

Thankx in advance.

Oh ya, whos using the current Sata Rosa and knows if the ASUS A7 series willll get the Penryn T9000 BIOS upgrade

ASUS A7S w/ T7700 and nVidia GeForce 8700GT M 512mb, OCZ PC2-6400

If you want a Penryn laptop, why not wait for a supported one to come out?

I am, and I will. I'm moving from the current PM965 (wich is hit or miss if ASUS will provide BIOS fix to run new Penryn), but I actually getting a new Montivina as soon as I can , maybe in May.

This is to keep an older model on the road for travel and family hand me down. Turns out the BIOS v6.90 did support the newer T7600 and is good for XP x64 too, so now I just want a mobo with GPU chip socket to use nVidia GO series. This is just a side project for my older 945GM
