Hi all. New to this forum, and about to purchase a 17". I'm not getting it for gaming, but primarily as a work/study/entertainment machine. However, if one were to be programming and testing games on this machine, one would want a suitably powerful GPU. Apple has again not done this, as they did with the 9600m GT. What I have done is compare the GT330m with two other candidates, ones which are far more powerful and use less than or the same power as the 330m (which also produce less heat). These candidates are the mobility HD5650 and HD5730, using 15-19 and 26 watts respectively (the 330m using 26 watts). The 5650, let alone the 5730 blow the 330m into the weeds using less power, and producing less heat. So I ask; WTF APPLE?!?!
