    i would never buy a new laptop with ATi graphics in -

    Ive got 1 now & the whole interface thing even though its real basic - takes too long to start up when my XP boots.

    I had a smilar problem on my PC back when i was running my X1800XT - & now that ive got a 8800GTS in my pc everything thing is pretty smooth while booting - no need to wait for the ATi thing to initiate

    If you mean Catalyst Control Centre, yeah it does like to take its time loading, but I find it's not that long, since I have to end up waiting for other stuff to laod at the same time, it makes no difference to me.
    I would definitely buy a laptop with a HD 3800 if it was cheap enough. In fact, I might actually do so if I move out.
    Still, I thought these had been announced quite a while ago, already.

    Its probably partially down to my laptop spec lol

    gawd bless its ikle cotton socks - its a sub laptop but i treat it like a desktop.

    Core Duo 1.66Ghz, 2Gb 667Mhz DDR2.

    Im sure it would fly if i made that 2Gb ddr2 into 3Gb. - who knows. all i know is i cant afford it right now & Im planning to get a new laptop in the future anyway but really thats no excuse seeing as ram is so cheap these days.

    Eventually i'l get around to installing a new copy of XP on it. give the system a right flushing out. might even go vista as im waiting for my XP to corrupt like it use to when i first bought it but ive had the same XP loaded on for god knows how long.


    ::EDIT::

    I do not endorse or recommend vista - but there comes a time where every man has to put down his guns & say "C'mon motherf**ker"

    P.S no doubt Vista will completely screw over my laptop resources.

    I actually prefer Vista over XP >.<

    Less buggy.

    Then again my only copy of XP is TinyXP Platinum.
