  philosophically, i don't like closed-source drivers any more than
the next geek, but sometimes you simply can't avoid getting an nvidia
card in some models of laptop.  in cases like that, as long as i can
install the downloadable driver and it works properly, i'm willing to
hold my nose.  and, i have to admit, for the most part, nvidia drivers
seem to work well.  i had one in an older dell inspiron and never had
any problems.

  it's not ideal but, barring any real issues, it's acceptable.
