X1650 generally is smaller and uns cooler than that 6800u. Of course, the 6800u is much better in terms of performance.

For gaming the ATI would be a step back, but for HTPC it'll definitely be a couple steps up. The 6800U doesn't support H.264 decoding. I downloaded a 1080p H.264 trailer and ran it on my 6800U - SLIDESHOW! The x1650Pro should actually be able to play it.

Here's one review.

purecain, has the R600 gotten back on schedule? Last I heard ATI still didn't know when they are releasing their new stuff.
