    am almost convinced to get either the Gateway200Xl or Fujitsu S700D for college next year, but one thing is holding me back..

    The damn integrated intel shared graphics....

    To anybody who has this card, can this thing play back DVD's smoothly and with a nice picture, and can it play the occasional decent game like rogue spear or something, how about internet graphic games, it shouldnt have any problems with that right like www.candystand.com and all.

    Thanks for the help

    I've sold a ton of centrino based systems that had the Intel extreme graphics, and no issues with games or movies at all.

    We had a demo one that was 1.4GHz IIRC with 512mb ram and we were easily able to play MS Flight sim 2004 at default settings. I can't see rogue spear and other games like that being a problem.
    If you're getting one for school next year, if at all possible, wait untill the last minute. By then the Donathan version of the Centrino cpu's will be out, and it's got double the cache(2mb vs 1mb) of the regular centrino based systems.
