This is a real shame for all future laptop users. As stated in the article the nVidia chipsets had much beter built in graphics capabilty, to be honest the Intel ones aren't up to much. Since built in graphics is about all you can expect in a laptop, what with the space premium an'all, this means that laptop performance will be further degraded w.r.t. desktop equivilants in processor, RAM, disc etc...
Plus, not allowing others to utilise the full potential of your chip seems to be anti-competitive to me. More so than IE being packaged with Windows, at least then you could choose to download and install a different browser.
On the bright side, this gives AMD a huge advantage with laptop gamers... 8-)
