I'll be interested to see how this laptop performs when playing HD DVDs. It has a fairly weak processor, considering what processors are available on the market. I had a Sony laptop (returned it because it was defective) with a 2.16Ghz Core 2 Duo processor and 2GB of RAM, and all other programs had to be shut down in order to keep it from choking when playing Blu-ray movies. My desktop computer (2.66Ghz Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM) is much better with Blu-ray, and based on my experience with the two computers, I probably wouldn't buy a computer with next-gen playback capabilities that had anything less than a 2.4Ghz Core 2 Duo processor.
