[Wolves] Which Laptop

Hello Amrik,

I have a little Thinkpad and a Macbook Pro. Both of which can run Ubuntu.

My Thinkpad does the 3d stuff as it has an Intel graphics chip. The
Macbook however has an ATI chip, I use the default open source driver
which does not support 3D effects. There is a proprietary driver that
can be turned on but if I do that then I can't play videos.

Neither of those are cheap options, however I have seen some cheap
Asus laptops (e.g. Asus X58L) that have Intel graphics.

Best Wishes,
