Apart from the initial hiccup when Ubuntu first introduced the Intel's OSS
driver, Intel Graphics have always resided in the "Just Works" camp. I'm
running dual screen, 1920x1200/normal orientaion and 1600x1200/vertical
orientation. Full compiz and runs pretty well considering:

leon at bofh-sider:~$ glxgears
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh.  The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
4812 frames in 5.0 seconds = 962.274 FPS
4220 frames in 5.0 seconds = 843.976 FPS
3611 frames in 5.0 seconds = 720.145 FPS
3633 frames in 5.0 seconds = 726.583 FPS
3846 frames in 5.0 seconds = 769.060 FPS
3609 frames in 5.0 seconds = 721.724 FPS

Can't remember exactly what it has in it, lenovo T410:
