As the forum poster says, that is understandable. Linux (X.org) may have something in the future, but in the meantime Linux users trying to buy a high-end laptop face an ugly situation having to pay for and power a Nvidia graphics processor, but getting low-end graphics from the built-in Intel graphics processor."

I just hooked up a LG BD570 for <$200 that plays Blu-ray discs, Netflix, Vudu, Pandora, other online content, files on a networked CIFS share from a Windows box and has built-in wifi. Only issue I've noticed is that it doesn't play .vob files from a network share.

Uncompensated overtime? Just Say No.
