Oh no, I'm not going to fall in the trap of calling this machine an "ultimate" FrankenPad...
...but do consider the following:
If you want a FlexView-equipped, 15" 4:3 unit, that runs like a deer yet idles at around 40 degrees C, capable of running a 64-bit OS properly with up to 8GB of RAM...while having the reliability of Intel integrated graphics...well, it's about all there.
This is one *very* clean Frankie as well. Expect no more than minor wear on the lid and the lightest of shines on the keyboard. No disappointments here.
If you understand both the advantages and the limitations of the given platform, you may want to put this one on your shopping list, because they really don't come much more loaded than the unit that is being offered here and now.
So Frankie m' boy, how do I price thee?
A tough call, even for myself.
I'm open to the concept of *minor* re-configuring (no HDD, RAM, media drive, battery...) but am not
going to rip the machine apart in order to offer it at the lowest price imaginable.
