I'll take the one concerning the fan noise. I have the CX200 and have ABSOLUTELY no issue with fan noise. I know that there are several threads about this and many that have had issues but as far as my experience; there is no concerns.
It does come on but no more or no less than my other three laptops. I have a Dell, Gateway (different from my tablet), and a Compaq, this one is prob the best or at least as good as my Dell.
Over all. I am very happy with my purchase. Maybe wish I had some more power, maybe wish I had the DVD burner, but the 1G upgrade and the overall functionality makes up for the rest.
