    Has anyone tried using Boot Camp on the new MBPs?

    Is there any chance of auto graphics switching in Windows with the AMD GPUs?

    Are there any other Boot Camp upgrades?

    Thanks.

    The reason I am asking is that the refresh didn't bring anything new to the MBP that I would make use of.

    Therefore I am considering getting the 2010 model after seeing what price it drops to.

    But I will be using both Mac OSX and Windows 7 so if the new MBPs support graphics switching in W7 then I will go for the new MBP. If not I will go for the old MBP depending on the price.

    Thanks.

    ^ thanks, I'm actually not sure how to find out the graphics status in Windows. I wonder if there is a Windows equivalent of gfxCardStatus?

    What version of Boot Camp drivers are installed?
