PCI Express

A few things about this laptop:

1. Would really like it to have better graphics. Intel Extreme 2 just won't cut it next to a real graphics chip (like the one in the PowerBook). For me, even though a G4 may be slower, the graphics capability is much better.

2. I believe PCI express is "right around the corner" with units scheduled to start shipping in late December and Q1 2005. Those should really improve on the HW side of things. Plus, they might ship with ATI X300 chips which would also improve the graphics. Just guessing here..

3. This looks a lot like the Powernotebooks 3:12

which is about $100 cheaper. IMHO $100 is a good deal to have it preconfigured with the distro of my choice.
