    Anyone with the new MBP installed windows yet? I was curious if the ability to switch between the graphics cards work on windows?

    No, when you're in Windows, you're stuck to the 9600M card. I'm not sure where I read that, so I'll find a link to back it up. :p

    Edit: Here we are!

    I guess it's not that bad. At least your not stuck with the 9400 on windows. Hopefully when snow-leopard rolls around we can take advantage of both chips.

    I think it probably has more to do with the limitations of the Boot Camp drivers, which weren't designed to do Hybrid-SLI or the logout-switching that Leopard does. Still, I'd bet that Apple will update their own [Snow] Leopard drivers to support more seamless switching before they do the same for Windows.
