I am looking at buying a Dell, Unfortunately in New Zealand you can't get them with nvidia graphics cards.

The laptops that are available in new New Zealand have the
Ati Mobility Radeon Hd 4570 card as an option.

I'm look for someone with experience with this graphics card.
Is their a binary driver available which supports 3D

Does Compiz work well.

I rely heavily on Compiz for my everyday computer use including Gnome Do Docky and desktop switching. So do not want to buy the laptop to find that I am limited to 2D graphics.

Given the lack of responses can I take it that is card is to new, and that no one knows or cares weather it works.
