ah, that I did not know! when did they start adding that?
 in that case all it doesn't get you is the new losslessly compressed
audio on BluRay, of which there is no software for Mac anyway (I guess

sadly my lenovo order got canceled (argh, they're no IBM...) so I'll
now be looking at a macbook again, helps that my good friend works
part-time at Apple and gets a discount =)
