Absolutely, I'm fully aware that I'll be getting more performance from the 
nVidia kit than from Intel.  But ATM I am facing a tossup between an Atom 
+ nVidia GPU or Core2 + Intel GPU - the former requires proprietary 
drivers which have a completely opaque development and bug reporting 
process, the latter requires more power and cooling.  I'm not sure which 
to go for ATM, so I'll need to look at the hardware closer.
