Will this processor run youtube HD videos or iPlayer HD videos?
Would be nice to hear your thoughts on the 3810T (13.3in) model. That size would seem to pair well with the extended battery life of the series to really satisfy a road warrior?
I have the Acer 3810T with the the SU3500 (as in this review).I have installed Windows 7 RC on it and have sucessfully played back WMV and H264 recorded at 1920x1080 as well as Blu-Ray (mounted ISO) on the internal display. The Intel X4500 has acceleration for these codecs that works very well. I have even played back Blu-Ray onto a 1080 plasma display vis the HDMI output. Again excellent.All these codecs play very well.The only problem has been BBC iPlayer HD which does not seem to be using HW acceleration for some reason - hope this will sort itself when Win 7 goes RTM and get fully tested with Adobe Flash.
