    "Review: nVidia GPU Delivers Fastest Mobile 3D Performance"

    It seems that the new Laptop Mobile GPU chip utilizes the same core as the GeForce 4 Ti GPU kicks @$$ in all categories except power management. Looks like I won't be able to boast that I have the latest and best mobile GPU...:(

    We should really be happy that we have the 9000 in the TiBook...nobody thought that was going to happen.

    while it is indeed a nice GPU...power management is one of those must haves in a laptop graphics card. add that to the fact that ATI drivers are just more reliable for the Mac, and I say you have yourself a pretty damn good card in your Radeon 9000.
