I just wanted to comment on the Intel HD 3000 graphics chipset that is used in the Sandy Bridge MacBook Pros. It's not that bad! Many people, especially those in the MBA section, were basically spelling out doomsday when Sandy Bridge MBAs are released. I know the chipset is slightly different, underpowered/underclocked, etc. for ULV Core iX processors, but it's honestly not that bad. I quickly forgot about the graphics when I use the computer. Everything was quick and very speedy. I even exported a couple of 720P videos in iMovie. I did not notice a slowdown at all. It performed much better than the 9400M in my previous 15" MBP and slightly faster than the 320M in the 13" MBP I was borrowing from someone. I haven't tested out gaming just yet but I don't game anyway since in my view, it's an absolute waste of time. I just wanted to tell the Intel graphics naysayers out there that the HD 3000 isn't as bad as people make it out to be. I think the turbo boost in the Core i5/i7 chips make up for the negligible difference in graphics performance for most tasks.
