Does anyone know if Geforce 4 440 Go (17 AluB) is better than the Radeon 9000 Mobility (15inTi) ?

-and how come Apple didnt decide to put
Geforce 4200 Go? It has infinite FX technology
and extreamly powerful,

The 9000 is better overall and it has features that the 440 doesn't like vertex and pixel shaders. My guess is that they went with the 440 to keep the cost within reason.

I personally prefer GeForce-cards, they have better signal quality and better colors compared to ATIs cards which I saw looked a bit washed.

I have ordered the 17alu and I'm glad it has a nVidia card in it.

P.S. Apart from that, I think all ATI hardware sucks in general, I have not seen a single ATI-card (on PC) without artifact or drivers problems. On other hand, nVidias cards work perfect in most situations. But that's my opinion.

Good, Because I have a 15in Ti 1Ghz, and the graphics are pretty impressive and fast. I orderd my 17in ALbook and hopefully I will be getting the same result
