Update: I installed CCCP and it worked... sort of. The laptop will play back 1080p video at the native 1280x720, but when I plugged it into a television and tried 1080p, it was still a bit jumpy. Watchable, sure, but not as smooth as my HTPC is. I checked and the graphics are one generation older than the laptop you're looking at, so that one should be okay.
, intel still hasn't figured out how to get 24 Hz output working right. This is only important if you have a 120Hz+ TV.
