Yes, I'm impressed too - for project looking glass (lg3d.dev.java.net)
which I work on we require the Composite extension and render
acceleration to be enabled to the same time - one of the main
developers approached ATI about support for this and they haven't been
supportive suggesting that they would do so when there was enough
demand. So I try and get Nvidia cards whenever I can - its a pity they
aren't available in the low end laptop space.
