    Hi everyone
    I currently use a 4 year old MBP with an X1600 GPU. Thinking about going for an Air, and wondering what the 320M is like in comparison.

    I play the occasional game but principally would use the machine as a holiday / travel laptop and would hope to be able to do light 3D graphics work on it. I know it's never going to replace a desktop machine but I'm quite good at working within hardware constraints.

    Is the 320M a much better GPU? If so by what order of magnitude?

    Thanks for the info people. Although now the temptation to buy one has gone up massively, since the 320M is much better than I thought it would be.
