    How well will X1400 handle Windows Vista?

    How much more does X1600 cost compared to X1400? Do you think Dell will add X1600 video card to E1505 laptop any time soon?

    The X1400 should be plenty for Vista. Dell is probably never going to give the X1600 to the E1505 - the E1505's predecessor only had a X300 GPU, which is comparable to the X1400.

    AMD, how exactly are the X300 and X1400 comparable? The X1400 is an entire class above the X300, the bare minimim of dedicated cards.

    Even intel integrated graphics will run vista. You just wont be able to turn on all the eye candy but vista will run fine with it. If you couldnt run vista on machines with integrated graphics vista would tank. and the x1400 is just below a x700 which is way above the x300.
