    Is there a significant difference between the new nVidia 330m Graphics against the older 9600 cards found in the slightly older MacBook Pros (i am talking about both having 512RAM) not really bothered about the auto-switching deal as i will be Windows frequently for Gaming and using Snow Leopard for University work, oh and as a side note, will the i5/i7 make much difference when gaming (more specifically Modern Warfare 2 and Gears of War), Regards, skate71290

    oh yeh, never thought to look on the Apple website, just wanted to read everyone's opinions as real-world use is different from factory testing/benchmarks

    It's a marginal upgrade over the 9600m GT, nothing to write home about. Also, the gaming benchmarks on the Apple site are for the 320m in the 13" macbook line. It is a much larger upgrade over it's predecessor, although still nothing to be excited about in terms of graphics performance.

    They are accurate, but they are also 6-year old games. They don't use many of the new features that today's GPUs offer.
