XGP not listed, but appears on FSC's product page
We found four FSC Puma notebooks listed in the E.U., but unfortunately none of them feature XGP.
Three of the listed models are 15.4-inch machines, the FSC Amilo Pa3515 and the Pa3553 in two distinct flavors. The 3515 packs a Turion 64 X2 RM-70 at 2.00GHz, 2048MB of memory, a 250GB hard drive and ships with Windows Vista Home Premium. It's currently listed at €733, here.
The Pa3553 comes with either a Turion 64 X2 ZM-80 at 2.00GHz, and 4096MB, or with a Turion 64 X2 RM-70 2.00GHz and 3072MB. They both have a 250GB HDD and cost €900 and €812, respectively, and you can find the listings here and here.
FSC also has a 17-inch Puma, the Amilo Xa3530. This behemoth comes powered by a Turion 64 X2 ZM-86 2.40GHz, it has 4096MB of memory and two 320GB hard drives, for a total of 640GB storage. It's got discrete graphics in the form of ATI's Mobility Radeon HD 3650 Hybrid 512MB, but still no XGP. It weighs 3.6kg, not too much considering everything that's crammed inside of it, but at €1173 it's not what you might call low-priced.
Now, none of these machines support XGP, the Sa 3650 with optional XGP support is not listed, but you can check out the product page here, and the product page for FSC's XGP, or Amilo GraphicBooster as they call it, here.
