I have a horrible feeling that when i plug in my new Core 2 Duo Mobile T7200 Merom (when it arrives) that the motherboard wont work and I will need to do a BIOS update using an old supported CPU.

Does anyone know what the cheapest CPU would be that would work in this motherboard ??

Celeron M 410 (Yonah)??

But I think it'd be better if you splash out and buy a Core Duo - much easier to resell after you've done the BIOS.

I have always found in the past if the motherboard does not directly support the CPU the BIOS sets the speed to the lowest available, once you have completed the BIOS upgrade and refreshed everything the new Chip should be shown correctly. If you go on the ASUS site and look up CPU support for your motherboard it will state what level of BIOS you require. On the motherboard BIOS rom a sticker should show what version is on it currently.
