They appear to be digitally signed now, which can only be a good thing.

What about Vista? I have a MBP running Vista, yet this looks like it's only for XP.

no mobility

Interesting that the new driver no longer says 'mobility'

Is there not enough differences in the mobile version vs. the regular (desktop) version to distinguish them anymore ?

well whats interesting is these drivers (8.353) do not support the new 2xxx series of ATi cards.

Only the 8.370 drivers do.... I wonder if this is a sign of things to come for what GPUs are used in the upcomming macbook pros / iMacs. Anyone know what version of Nvidia drivers are currently used?

Whatever Apple writes themselves. Nvidia doesn't support the Mac hardware the way ATI does.
