Thanks again.  Out of curiosity, have you tested out Hulu or other higher res flash streams with it?  Flash video is a dog on my 780G system.

The Flash plugin does not yet have any hardware graphics acceleration, so it is all done by the CPU... consequently, if your CPU is not fast, complex Flash will suck! I believe that Adobe intend on updating the Flash plugin to use GPUs at some point, hopefully soon. At which point it will be as smooth as a baby's bum on an ION platform!

Well as of Flash 10 it does have some hardware acceleration so its a little better than prior versions. In our tests the Ion seems to deliver Flash content better than the GMA950 does on other Atom based mobos.
