    Hey,

    I've just myself a new 15inch MBP 2.8Ghz. I'm wondering if people know which graphics card Windows 7 will utilize under Bootcamp? I'm wondering because I think I'll be booting Windows for gaming.

    Thanks,

    Andy

    Currently you cannot choose which GPU under windows like you can with OSX. The "default" GPU is the 9600m which is great for games and such but poor for mobility, i.e., battery

    Well that's good news then :) Even though I can see it might be a down side for battery etc. I mean I'm just using Windows to play games really so awesome!
