It has been confirmed that the new 13 inch MacBook will abandoned Intel graphics chipsets for those of NVIDIA by AppleInsider

At a minimum, they can confirm that 13-inch systems will adopt chipsets from NVIDIA's MCP79 platform.

MCP79 is believed to use a new set of GeForce 9300 and 9400 series integrated mainboard graphics processors. Regardless of which variant Apple uses, both are expected to support the latest visual effects and will theoretically blow past the performance of not just the Intel GMA X3100 video on Apple's current MacBooks but also the GMA 4500MHD found on newer notebooks using Intel's reference hardware.

Other benefits to the NVIDIA chipset include a smaller footprint and features such as DriveCache and Hybrid SLI.

If i'm not mistaken, the iMacs use laptop parts, right? Would this mean that the iMacs will also get the nvidia chipset? That would be awesome !! We would be able to play even more awesome games on the iMac !! I do not own a iMac/MacBook yet. But it one of the things I want most. SO if the iMac has the nvidia chipset I would start saving money right away !!
