Hello there!
I own a G1S but its graphic card is toasted (most Nvidia GeForce 8600GT are in fact, because of overheating. That's what killed mine...) But I quite like it and I would like to bring it back to life. BUT since the GeForce 8600GT is a reliable as my old TVR... (i.e. the most unreliable thing on earth), I wanted to get a motherboard (because the graphic card is welded on it and you can't change or upgrade it) but without the damn 8600GT.
I know the "successor" of the G1S, the G1Sn, has the same motherboard, except it has an improved CPU, Graphic card and a few other things... I think it would fit the G1S as well but there's just a problem, according to this site: http://forum.notebookreview.com/asus-reviews-owners-lounges/236856-asus-g1sn-review-video-benchmark.html , there's two versions of the G1Sn, the A1 and the B1. I want to buy the motherboard from Ebay, but none of the sellers give the exact spec of their cards, all I know is that they only sell Part number 60-NLCMB1000-B01.
But is it the one from the G1Sn-B1, the one with the Intel Core 2 Duo Penryn T9300 2.5 GHz 6MB Processor?

If not, what is the part number for a G1Sn-B1 motherboard?
Thanks!
Regards,

I don't know what the part number is, though I would guess that B01 is the B1 mobo. If the seller has the processor on the mobo, he can tell you what the processor is directly, it's etched into the die.

Hello BadGoldEagle,
Did you manage to replace your G1S mainboard for a Sn?

If yes which did you use and what is your expirience?
