I would imaginie so. I did notice the announcement on slashdot, then saw it 
here. Obviously I didn't read it carefully enough ;)

Don't know.

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...
