I am seriously considering the unibody mbps with the 9600. I consider myself to be fairly knowledgeable when it comes to laptops, but having never owned one with a dedicated graphics card, i have to wonder how useful they are. So here is what i understand about graphics cards (Please feel free to correct me as necessary): - graphics cards are useful only for apps which support them...and in mac os x, apps like these are far and few. and what are some common have that do support this?... - A user who downloads a ton of .mkv blu ray rips will not find it useful to have a graphics card, since VLC supposedly utilizes the CPU only. - nvidia does not have the best rep for making reliable cards. - major driver issues, so they are pretty much useless... so what do you say folks? is a dedicatd card worth it...especially for a user who has tons of blu-ray rips?
