Though I suppose the Intel integrated graphics is less powerful than
the Nvidia, I am glad I chose Intel when I purchased my T61.  I value
reliability above performance, and the system performs well enough for
my needs, especially with a T9500 processor upgrade.  Note that some
T61 motherboards may not be compatible with the Penryn processors, of
which is the T9500.
