    Yes, apologies if I didn't make myself clear, but that's exactly my point. Intel makes a lot of products with superb FLOSS support, buy those instead, not the GMA500/600.
    The problem is that there *ARE NO ALTERNATIVES* in the market segment covered by those products.

      Then buy a new battery for your netbook and wait a little untill Intel does come out with solid IGP's, AMD's CPU+GPU chip comes around... or just not buy proprietary shit. If there isn't another way then don't buy such products. There are many laptops enough with a Radeon. Desktops is easy money;: you can even get one for as much as $15 or something, rendering it a non-issue.

      I would also like to have an Xbox360 because they are cheap as hell. It is the Playstation 1 of today. The problem is is that it is Microsoft. I refuse to buy their crap. Simple as that. A PSP will do fine.

            stupid glossy display. Next!

            (I'm actually looking for a new netbook right now, but didn't find any with a workable resolution and no glossy display)

              Want to run the latest and greatest Intel blob, then? It has a pretty decent res (13xx*xxxx or something). You can made a DIY anti-reflector.

              Or... You could wait for that 11inch, glossy anti reflective and anti smuch 13xx*xxx touchscreen, 2GB RAM, dual-core Neo, 120GB SSD, 1KG, 3G modem, 10 hour battery Asus EEE...

              But that isn't going to happen anytime soon

                It always bugs me that I am forced to either buy a windows license or don't buy a laptop at all. At least where I live there is no other option. I hope more of these OS free PCs start to become more common.

                About that particular computer it's just too bad it uses 200 year old technology with poor battery life. My main concern when buying portable stuff is that it IS actually portable.
