Default Re: Intel: NVIDIA Ion is Overkill

I'm going to have to agree with Intel on this one. A netbook is for portability and battery life, not video performance or gaming. If I were to ever get a netbook I would rather get one with a less powerful video card but longer battery life.

Ion is the perfect solution for nettops. Some might want it in a netbook, but a tee-niney home theater system that can handle HD is a great combination.

Didn't think of that but it's an awesome idea.
