I've never used one, but from the posts I've seen, the 3D effects are very slow. Intel releases their own drivers and I think the first distro with support is Mint 6/Ubuntu 8.10. I'm sure they will have better drivers Mint 7 or 8. I would probably go for one with a newer Nvidia card. I've always been pleased with Nvidia. Just my 2 cents.
