Power req.: Intel X3100 vs. NVIDIA Go 8400M GS

Anyone familiar with the relative power requirements of Intel's X3100 versus NVIDIA's 8400M GS? I'm looking at the Dell XPS 1330 laptop and wondering how much the discrete graphics option is going to affect battery life. This is particularly interesting in that Dell won't let you buy a 1330 with the 4 cell battery if you chose the NVIDIA graphics solution!

Any pointers appreciated...

  1. Well, as the 8400M GS is dedicated, it should use more power then an integrated solution would use.
