    For some reason, amongst all these silly topics about color calibration profiles and express card (lol) I don't see anything about the most important topic relevant to most MacBook Pro purchasers -- games. :p

    So, in the interest of the community, I've benchmarked using 3DMark06 in Windows 7. My system (the highest end 15") gets a very respectable 6096, which puts it in line with the benchmark listed at http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Graphics-Cards-Benchmark-List.844.0.html In fact, it puts it slightly above it, at the benchmark there is roughly 5000.

    For people who don't know what this means -- 6096 is more than enough for most games today at respectable settings. In fact, it's probably the highest you're going to see today in a 5.5 lb machine that gets 6 hours of battery life when switching to the 9400 card. Keep in mind that I was running on Windows 7 RC with the BootCamp drivers -- we might get better performance when nVidia releases the final Windows 7 drivers.

    That's pretty good. I have a Late 2008 Unibody with 2.53/9600GT w/ 512 running windows 7 also, but when i ran my benchmark, it ran it at 1280x854 and i scored a 5400ish. I'm not sure why mine ran at 1280x854 and not 1280x800.
