Pros: Quiet (duh)
Works with VDPAU on it's highest settings
Other Thoughts: I bought this card to replace a failed GT8600 in my main HTPC box. No issues on installation, the card just worked. I use it daily for multiple hours at a time and the GPU temp averages at about 65 C. This with a case that isn't ventilated the greatest (1 case fan, not blowing on the card). Overheating was my main concern in buying this card but it a complete non-issue now.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have this guy running a Mythbuntu 10.04 frontend with only 1 GB of ram and a usb flash drive as the root drive. Plays 1080i video great using VDPAU. Nice not having a large desktop as the frontend (this guy is mounted directly to the monitor)
Cons: Boot is very slow, but I'm blaming that on using a usb flash drive as the boot drive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Laptop is FAST. Didn't expect the i7 to be such a huge improvement over previous CPUs. Speakers are the best I've ever had on a laptop. Sleek design.
Cons: The 1366x768 screen resolution is slightly disappointing, although can't expect more from the price. My palm catches the touchpad a lot while I'm typing. Ubuntu (9.10) has some issues with it.READ FULL REVIEW
