    Hey, so I've seen a few people on here now suggesting that the 2011 MBPs might have a gtx 425m. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how this or even the current gt330m might compare to a desktop Radeon HD 4670. Any help is appreciated.

    Rumours suggest that AMD graphics are more likely. I'm thinking 6670M ish.

    A great site for comparing GPUs is www.notebookcheck.net

    Either way, the desktop radeon 4670 is going to crush anything a new MBP is likely to get.

    EDIT: I would kill for a 6850M in the next 17" MBP like the present HP Envy 17" has. Even if Apple underclocks it.

    This one wins.

    :p Stupid me.

    Still, the point is that the Envy line have had great, light, inexpensive notebooks with fantastic specs for a long, long time. So if Apple can't take the extra money we're willing to give them and use it to fit in equivalent, or even just close to, performance there's something wrong.
