comment Battery cycles for rMBP and recharges?
It is, but the Intel chip should handle the second display fine: arstechnica.com/business/2012/04/… It also depends on the resolutions of the screens. If you have the MBP set to the 1920x1200 setting and you're plugging in a 27" inch cinema display, that's almost 13 million pixels, so you'd want the nVidia. But at 1440x900 + 1080p display, the Intel chip should be fine.

Dynamic switching is what the OS does—it uses the Intel chip, which consumers (much) less power, when you're not doing anything graphics-intensive, and only fires up the nVidia chip when its power is needed. Dynamic switching will keep your power bill down. ;)

comment Is it possible to enable 1.5x scaling using HiDPI on OS X?
On a side note, I've never understood the need to use TVs as displays. The dot pitch means that if you're close enough to read UI text everything's pixelated, and if you're far away to not see pixels you can't read the UI. Get a proper $100–$150 display if possible.
