GeForce 9400M to dominate notebook graphics?

GeForce 9400M prospects

Apple's latest MacBooks are poised to lose their graphics advantage in short order, a new report suggests. Acer, ASUS, Dell and HP have confirmed plans to launch notebooks with NVIDIA's GeForce 9400M integrated graphics chip, which has been described as substantially faster than many other integrated chips currently in use. Some of these companies claim that the 9400M could spread to as many as 20 percent of Intel-based notebooks, branching out from MacBooks, which were the first with the technology.

At least 10 non-Apple computers with the 9400M are expected to begin shipping before the end of the year. ASUS has confirmed one of its entries as the F50GX, which uses a 16:9, 16-inch display, and like the MacBook Pro adds a dedicated GeForce 9600M processor. The 9600M allows notebooks to run higher-end PC games such as Crysis and Team Fortress 2.

    Damn!

    Plus, all of these notebooks are running the vastly superior Windows Vista, thus further eclipsing any advantages Apple might have had.

    Looks like the beleaguered computer company will have a formidable fight ahead... :-)

    Right - Vista rules. Not!

    So right. I've thought about getting an inexpensive notebook - $400-$500 area, but not with Vista. Maybe WinXP. Or no - I almost forgot - I can run WinXP on my MacBooK!
