    Yeah it's kind of counter intuitive, but it is in the "energy/battery" settings.

    I seem to recall Steve saying that they are both discrete, but the instructions provided let you chose between the two.

    That is not correct.

    The the 9400M is integrated and uses shared memory, It is also the chipset for the system. The 9600M GT is the discrete graphics card, with dedicated memory.
