well, as devices get smaller yet have the same current going through them, they will have less surface area to dissipate the same thermal energy, so they will need a bigger heatsink in order to do that.
CPU's are getting smaller, yet they are not getting less powerful or lesser quality. If anything the new smaller components are higher quality. They will usually only make something smaller if they can do so with no loss in quality or performance.
If the voltage regulators weren't regulating as well as the old ones, they'd need to add even more components to help regulate, which would cost even more money than just using the good regulators in the first place.
I agree Asus cheaps out in a lot of places... but I really dont think the cpu's voltage regulators would be a good place to do so!
