Hmmm...this Mobility Radeon 9600 64MB (M10-CSP64) may be faster than you think. It is one of the few that uses on-chip memory. Although there is no real evidence of on-chip memory performing faster than discrete graphics with off-chip memory, it is highly possible that this architecture may be faster. Plus it would be very easy to upgrade this chip with a pin-compatible Mobility Radeon 9700 with 128MB onchip memory. (For Asus, not for the end user).
Additionally, the LED array made it to the production model. The model is already available in a few countries, and there is a US MSRP (although I can't remember the number at this point). The LED display is an optional configuration, however. The manual now on Asus' website shows this.
