256MB isn't useful. But the core on the 6800go is pretty good. Also, not much choices out there if you're looking for a notebook with a non-integrated gfx card. If you want a gaming notebook, your best choice would be a dell 9300 if you're only looking at name brands. The P4 would be a good choice because its direct contender would be an athlon 64, which no manufactuere currently offers with a separate gfx card. SO only choice would be a pentium M or turion (once again turion doesn't have any separate gfx cards notebookss). But be aware 64-bit is here, so you might want to wait for a 64-bit Pentium M. If you don't care for 64-bit, then right now, best perforumance coupled with gfx card would be with a Pentium M.
