So what? You can even play full-screen movies on a dog-slow A500. You just can't play normal, full resolution movies, and I don't believe for a second that you can play 720x576 XviDs with your 366 MHz ThinkPad unless you have some dedicated decoder chip in it. And even if you could I still wouldn't be "shittin" since I really will believe it when I see it.
