here. Obviously I didn't read it carefully enough ;)

True... My second choice laptop is a Toshiba which has a Geforce 4 Go, but
according to tomshardware.comm the Geforce 4 and Radeon 7500 are fairly
comparable in speed.
But I think I'm going to go for the Asus with the Radeon 7500 despite the
possibility of UT 2003 not working. It has 512MB RAM, e.g twice that of the
Toshiba, 10GB larger disk than the toshiba, and higher res screen than the
Toshiba, and is cheaper than the Toshiba.
If all else fails I'll have to pay UT 2003 under Windows which would be
extremely annoying, but I do keep Windows around because I play Medal of
Honour, Battlefield 1942 etc...
