Updated:

can’t imagine that the post indicating the new G4s have GeForce MX all the way up the line is right…..#1 for the high end, youre paying a premium, wouldnt a geforce 4 (standard) be the best bet?….#2 MX chipsets are usually released 2nd time around from Nvidia…the hardcore will buy the premium, the cost sensitive will buy the MX which is why Nvidia pushes them out later.
