I know I'm a bit late, but I have to compliment Lisa Gade on such a thorough, intelligent review. I've just bought a P series (half price!) and you've really helped me. A special thank you for the Cyberlink WinDVD tip - that alone is honestly worth a couple of hundred dollars. 10 minutes ago I couldn't watch full screen video without either a choppy picture with Media Player or choppy audio with VLC. Now I can! I've searched high and low in reviews and forums for a solution to this problem, and you had the answer 11 months ago! What a pity that more users of the GMA 500 haven't read your advice.

Absolutely glad to hear the Cyberlink tip worked so well for you

And for those of you with most any netbook running Intel GMA 500 integrated graphics, the Cyberlink tip posted in our review should help improve your machine's video playback performance too: .
