    Monitor which graphics card is in use!
    I don't know if I have seen this here before, but this program is essential with the new i-series MacBook Pros. It lets you change which graphics card you are using on the fly, and also lets you monitor which card is in use. Valuable tool for finding out which programs are triggering the swap. You can also define profiles for battery/power adaptor usage. Simple UI just puts a N or i in the menu bar.

    Like I said, I don't know if this has already been posted here, but I just got my i5, so I thought I would share it.

    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    Not keen on giving it a go personally (as I don't need to), but looking at it, I agree with chscag on this, nice find, and thanks for sharing
