    Hi

    I just tried gfxcardstatus, but the program reads i have a 9600GT and the manual switching doesnt work, anyone know a program where the manual switch works for the 13"?

    I feel the nvidia is being used to much when im just surfing and stuff

    The 13" MacBook Pro only has integrated graphics (either NVIDIA 9400M or 320M) you cannot switch to a dedicated card because it doesn't have one.

    The 13" MacBook Pro has one graphics card. The Nvidia 320M is the integrated graphics card for the 2010 13" MBP.

    Haha... what are you trying to switch to?! Maybe you meant to say you have the 15"?

    your computer doesn't have a graphics card to switch, you only have an integrated one that uses part of your ram for memory
