    MacBook Pro 2008 questions.

    i have two questions.

    1. when i have about 1 or 2 hours using the MacBook it gets really hot from the esc button to f6 button. is that normal?

    2. i've seen that they say u can choose between the 9400m or the 9600m gt graphic cards. how do you do it?

    The heat you desribe is normal on a pro, they tend to run a little hotter than the Macbook.

    I think the graphics card is detrmined by the screen size.

    They run hot. That is life, don't worry unless it crashes a lot.

    As for two at the moment you can decide.

    Then decide which card you use by clicking on either higher or low performance. As below:




    In the future, OSX will switch naturally (maybe in the next update). Window is fixed to the better card.

    Also just so you know (it is no big deal) but this is in the desktop section. The MacBook Pro goes in the Apple notebook section.

    Anymore questions about the MacBook Pro, please feel free to PM me.

    Does the graphics option also apply to late 2007 Macbook pro's?
