Default Re: Integrated GT2xx solutions?

Damnit I just wrote about three paragraphs and had to re login and lost it.

Any way the abbrevated version is that I just got a new i5 laptop and am very happy with the hd intel igp. It plays blu ray and mkvs without any problems, and I have used it several times on my 47".

However I read this week that a new platform is coming soon codenamed Optimus. This will be a nvidia hybrid sli solution that works with the i3,i5 intel igp. Supposed to be really nice from what I hear, but if I were building an htpc right now I would seriously look into the i3/i5 and a decent board. Or wait to see what optimus turns out to be like.
