I have a Notebook with Intel graphics Cchipset. For me it's the best choice, as I don't need 3D and the Notebook runs much longer, due to lower power consumption.

Fast enough for me, I wouldn't know wherefor you need much 2D speed, normally you won't recognize any difference in 2D compared to other cards. Or did you mean 3D?

Therefor you need a package called 915resolution (My resolution is 1400x1050). Its available for breezy and works fine. Just google for "915resolution breezy"
> - ability to easily display to external monitor
Sorry, I haven't tested or used this.
