    When you switch the new macs from better battery life to higher performance does the CPU performance increase. I know this seems a silly question but i'll explain the reason for my asking. I had macs for years and am well up to date with computer technology. I have assumed that higher performance only switches on the 9600m gt, however, when I had my ibook running tiger there was the option to change processor performance. There were three options better battery, normal and high performance [this might not be the exact names but indicates where i'm heading]. Now when I change my MBP to high performance I don't notice a speed increase, so do they allow the processor to run at full performance in better battery life? and if so that would mean higher performance is only for the graphics.

    Higher performance means only graphics, all it does is change you from your bad 9400 graphics card to your performance 9600 one, nothing to do with your processor at all.
