    That is kind of annoying, the 13in Macbook pros come with the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics with you cannot upgrade. In order to get a decent video card with dedicated vRAM, I am going to have to drop $2000 for a 15in Macbook pro? That is kinda depressing. Will it be able to handle games well?

    They're all integrated Nvidia chips. It can run COD:4 very well.

    Mine's a bit crispy, but I have the 2.0GHz and 2GB RAM model, so having the 2.4GHz one and upgrading to 4/8GB RAM should so the trick.

    i have a 15 inch macbook pro with the dual graphic cards. to be honest I dont see the need to use the 9600gt in OS X. 9400m is pretty darn good at basic stuff.
    I haven't seen how games run on the 9400m as xp does not recognise the 9400m if u have the 9600gt but i am guessing it will be able to run current games in moderate settings.

    Since Snow Leopard uses All 4GB of RaM on my 2.0GHz MacBook how much faster will COD4 Run?

    9400m is pretty good, amazing for an integrated card. 9600m GT is beast though

    Where are you getting your information? Snow Leopard, heck, no Operating System uses all 4 GB of RAM. Unless you mean recognize, all 4 GB of RAM. It depends on if the App itself is 64-Bit.
