    Hello forum,

    Just purchased a brand-new W100-106 (old stock but sealed package, latest BIOS, etc.) and have a few questions I'd like to ask if that's okay.

    Absolutely LOVE using this machine but would like to know:

    1. Is there any way at all I can upgrade the machine to have the 3G module sold in the W100-10D on the continent (Italy and Germany only I think) ?

    The trade parts page on Topaz support shows me many modem boards if I search on "any of" 3G and HSDPA. Which one belongs to the Libretto W100?

    I probably need a "real" connecting PCB rather than the dummy one fitted in the W100-106. Any idea what the part numbers are?

    2. The U5400 is a Core i3 derivative CPU with x64 instruction support. Will the libretto W100 run Windows 7 64-bit?

    3. Is there any intention to support Windows 8 fully, i.e. some fix for metro apps needing more than a 1024 * 600 screen res, possibly by combining the two lcd screens to form one desktop? Any chance Microsoft will fix the issues for the official Windows 8 release later this year?


    Thanks very much in advance!

    >1. Is there any way at all I can upgrade the machine to have the 3G module sold in the W100-10D on the continent (Italy and Germany only I think) ?

    Well, possibly you could do that since the 3G module is an miniPCI removable part.
    As far as I know the W100-10H was equipped with such module
    I found one compatible 3G F3607gw module part number: P000531030

    >2. The U5400 is a Core i3 derivative CPU with x64 instruction support. Will the libretto W100 run Windows 7 64-bit?

    According to the Intel Ark page the CPU support the 64bit instruction set so Win 64bit should work

    I think this can be answered by Toshiba only and not by community members.
    But I think you should wait for Win 8 release and should check if the drivers would be available for this unit

    Thanks Tom.

    I'll leave the thread unanswered in case anyone else has a contribution to make.
