Everybody I know does not care for Pentium chipsets in desktop computers.
Those people also choose the ATI solution in laptops solely for this one 
having its own memory because the video RAM access does not interfere with 
the CPU's access to the system RAM. AFAIK, i815 still has those old issues, 
doesn't it?

Also, there were quite some issues with 1400x1050 laptop displays and the 
intel8xx X driver.
