I recently bought a Dell/Ubuntu 1420n laptop.
It's fantastic. Multimedia buttons, Sleep, Hibernation, 3D acceleration, 2D acceleration, SD card slot, Wireless, etc etc.
All of that works out of the box. OUT OF THE BOX. I bought it, opened it up, turned it on, and started using it. Total setup time was about 10 minutes.
After upgrading the 3D drivers to those provided by Gutsy I am using Fusion. (well actually now I am running Debian and it's just as kick-ass)
It actually uses less CPU time to move windows around in fusion then it does on 2d-only metacity.
Sorry Intel's open source drivers far outstrip Nvidia's open source drivers.
