So why having another crappy intel chip, which just wastes valuable battery time?

Personally i am a bit worried if all new nvidia-card laptops will ship with Optims & co.
I am a nvidia fan (i was even before i used Linux), but now i dont see other choice but to buy an AMD laptop (those have quite good prices btw and their drivers are improving)...
