ND filter on G9... gimmick?

I don't mean to be argumentative here. I am probably just naive. I barely know what a ND filter is... but with photoshop (PSE5.0) I have recently learned to use the gradient filter to create what I am told is the same effect. It would be hard for me to believe that an on-board camera filter can be as precise as a bit of post-processing in photoshop when it comes to gradient.

So, is the ND filter a gimmick? Or, does it really represent an excellent feature that should cause me to look more seriously at the G9 than I did before learning it had this feature?
