Default The LG P300 13.3" laptop for gaming...what's your opinion?

LG P300-U.APB3A9:

Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 @ 2.1GHz (3MB cache, 800MHZ FSB)
Intel PM965 Express Chipset
4GB DDR2 PC2-5300 (667MHz) + 1GB Intel Turbo Memory
NVIDIA 8600M GS (256MB) w/ HDMI
320GB 5400RPM SATA hard drive
External DVD Super Multi Dual Layer drive
13.3" WXGA (1280x800) LED Backlit LCD
WiFi (802.11a/g/n), Bluetooth (v2.0+EDR), and gigabit ethernet
Windows Vista Home Premium SP1
6-cell (Li-Ion) battery
3.5lbs

$1399 (regularly $1599)

As an ultra-portable, the only thing that came close was the Dell XPS M1330, but that model only has a 128MB 8400M GS.

What do you think?

From what I can tell, the P300 is only available in Asia, Europe, and Canada.

In Canada: Future Shop: Computers: Laptops: LG Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 2.1GHz Laptop (P300) - Future Shop Exclusive

I know the page says $1599.99 but they actually have it priced at $1399.97 in the store (I was there today).

In terms of graphics performance on an ultra-portable, is there anything that comes close to the P300? This is the first time I see mid-class graphics on anything 13.3". I don't even think that there are too many 14" units that can match it...
