Rumor has it the new Pros will feature nothing more than a mere 9600M GT. Unlike the 8600M GT, which, whilst not being high end by any means, was at least brand new at the time it was first incorporated into the MBP, the 9600M GT is simply a slightly faster clocked 8600M GT that itself has been around for months and months and there are plenty of alternatives, including both the 9650M GS and GT, not to mention if Apple designed the computer a little more with the GPU in mind, some high end cards. So if there's a 9600M GT in the new Pros on Tuesday, don't get too happy, Apple will have crippled it's most powerful notebook for hardcore AND mainstream (Diablo 3 and StarCraft II on the horizon, you'd expect a cutting edge Pro laptop to make those shine but with a 9600M GT it'll "just run"), as well as certain kinds of video professionals and those working with CAD and 3D. Taken from: http://blogs.pcworld.com/gameon/archives/007916.html A good article on why you should be completely underwhelmed and disappointed in Apple for using a 9600M GT should rumors prove true. Let me quote for you the first scentence: The word on the street is that Apple's new high-end MacBook Pro is set to ship with an NVIDIA 9600M GT, arguably the most underwhelming GPU upgrade to Apple's "pro" part in years. At least a 9650M GT and all is forgiven.
