    Ok so I am sure this has been out there before but I am making a big purchase buy either getting a new 13 uMBP or going for the 15 uMBP but in the question of graphics, which one.

    I heard Snow will utilize the Discrete and Built in, but will it make that much of a difference, or should I just get the 13 with the 9400M GPU?

    If the difference will not be earth shattering I think I am going the 13 inch route.

    There's currently a discussion going on about how the 13" MBP may not be supported by the 64-bit kernel. So if you're looking for something to run the 64-bit version of Snow Leopard, that might help you decide.

    I love my 15" unibody. If you want it for gaming, I'd say discrete graphics. If you're going with just basic internet stuff, then integrated graphics should be fine.
