Which, sadly, don't enable you to play many games, or use cool things
like beryl in any kind of real time, or even dork around with things
like Second Life. As much as I hate the way ATI and nVidia work, Intel
doesn't seem to be interested in making a really good 'performance'
chipset, at least not the ones built into most common laptops.

Intel: Great for work, terrible for fun.
