    I ran across this article on X-bit Labs.

    Here's the first paragraph. For the entire story follow the link above.

    This could be very interesting.

    Now you know why I'm waiting another year or so before I even consider upgrading my laptop. I have a certain set of requirements in mind and we're not even CLOSE to matching them yet. This machine met all the requirements I had at the time and has been an excellent machine for the past few years. Desktop users are better off just getting a medium range video card with HDMI output. I priced out updating my desktop machine and it came in around 500 bucks. That's not bad considering that includes mobo, proc, memory, and hdmi video card. That won't be considered until later this year at the earliest. My wife would kill me. :)

    This sounds like the Matrox graphics accelerator card from the 90's.

    Forty dollars spent on a better processor and graphics card will soon do the job without going to this trouble.

    Notice that they didn't mention how much the HD software would cost.

    :agree: That was my thought, too.
