I just ran 3dMark06 on my new Asus G51vx and got 10056. That was all stock no oc P8700 C2D @ 2.53Ghz and stock GTX 260m timings. I'll have to check around and see how the score compares to other similar setups. But compared to the XGP results I've seen so far, I concur with frozenlead, XGP isn't better performance wise than a dedicated graphics laptop. I guess it would give you battery life or performance option according to your task. I took the two separate laptop route. Asus G51vx for performance/games and Dell Mini 9 for portability and battery life. The Mini 10 may have better ergonomics, being a little bigger, because the Mini 9 keyboard is a little cramped but completely usable.
