ATI has the same problems as nvidia, but their drivers are considerably worst,
in my opinion. I find that even their windows drivers are problematic.
I, for one, stand with the intel video chipsets if I'm going to buy a
notebook. I'm satisfied with the hardware and the drivers, but I'm not a
gamer. nvidia 3D performance is of course much better, but then you have to
live with the proprietary drivers. I don't consider using ATI with Linux, but
that's just me.
