I ordered my Dell 620 laptop with an nVidia card, instead of the default Intel (which is in there too, but turned off), and operate it with the Free nv driver. I use the machine for work, so I never run 3D code. The nVidia card uses more power, but doesn't compete for bus bandwidth with the CPU. I had a choice of the ATI card, which today I would choose since ATI has announced support for a complete free driver.
