This was discussed on IRC shortly after Mark's post. For now, the
graphics hardware simply isn't there to serve this market.

LB can run the binary VGA BIOS in the emulator for init but for
operation going through legacy drivers/APIs is not the right way.

Until there is powerful open graphics hardware from someone the
laptop wont happen. But keep pushing for it!

(Intel graphics is not available separately yet, so we would need a
completely different business case in order to use Intel CPU and
chipset in the laptop. Intel graphics is built-in to the Intel
chipset, which only works with Intel CPUs.)
