    I don't much of anything about graphics chipsets. My 2010 MBP has "Intel HD Graphics" and nVidia GeForce GT 330M graphics, which one is better?

    The 330m, as it is a dedicated GPU, meaning it has its own chip and memory.
    But the Intel HD Graphics will suffice for most needs anyway, unless you do something graphic intensive.

    Btw, are you missing the verb "know"?

    The 330 crushes the Intel HD Graphics of last year, this year and the most recent discrete AMD 6490 GPU!

    nVidia 330M is great, I haven't had any issue with it in almost 10 months.
