Most of the information I've gathered is about the Radeon Mobility X600 on the Mandriva laptop. I assume that both situations are relevant, so when I have enough info I'll do a report that covers both hardware configurations. Having spent a little longer with the netbook, I'm not convinced that changing the AccelMethod did as much for the Intel board as it did for the ATi one. I'll give it a bit longer and see if I can get anything useful. Anne
