I want a 3D on my laptop to demonstrate it to other and wow them and to  
convince them to try out Linux desktop.

Getting the ATI binary only drivers to work w/o fiddling around, is a 
pain (compared to NVidia).  Does not look good in front of a potential 
convert.

With Intel graphics, the native Xorg server is 3D capable so I can demo 
a compiz-fusion desktop with LiveCDs that support it.
