Intel is doing really good job in convincing me that my next laptop should have VGA made by them

Amen to that. I installed Ubuntu Feisty on my friend's Centrino Acer, and it is like a breath of fresh air to use on that machine. ACPI, Compiz, everything, out of the box.

Yes. I just saw HP release a new 17" laptop with the Intel graphics chip and it supports 1680x1024 . It's on my to buy list.

I don't need the power and the heat of nVidia and ATI can bite me with their driver policy (where's the FreeBSD support) and quality (probably would suck anyway).

nVidia does a great job for FreeBSD support and I use them on my desktop.

VGA? Damn all the overloaded TLAs in IT. I'm sure everyone can figure out what I read that as the first time.
