    How good does it work? Does Snow Leopord run as smooth with the Intel GPU as with the 320M/330M?

    The intel GPU does not support OpenCL I heard, so when SL will make use of OpenCL alot, you need to activate the 330M all the time then?

    It's about as powerful as old 9400M is so it runs it fine. Don't worry about OpenCL, the IGP is too slow to be used in that anyway and support for OpenCL is still very poor

    I've noticed no performance issues that could be attributed to the Intel GPU. So far.

    Full screen flash video stutters under the Intel IGP, smooth as butter with discrete graphics. Other than that, unless I'm doing something 3D I can't tell the difference.
