    is there a utility like the one for the newest MBP's that I can use for my late 2008 MBP to switch on the fly without logout for the graphics cards?

    Nope, the only way to switch it is to select the option in the energy preference panel and logout/log in.

    Heck, at least we can change it in OSX, in windows and OSX, you're stuck with the 9600m

    No automatic switching utility. But I made a script for gaming which automatically selects the faster graphics processor setting and logs you out and back in. See this thread: click here
