    Discrete Graphics Question?
    I got the 5.1 and it has discrete graphics. Do I have to turn that on, and if I do how?

    Thanks,

    Specs:
    MacBook (Mid-2007, 10.5.8) + MacBook Pro (Late-2008, 10.9) - See Signature
    Open System Preferences and goto Energy Saver.

    At the top you should see an option for Graphics:
    Better battery life = 9400M
    Higher performance = 9600M GT

    Select the one you wish to use, you will then need to log out and back in again for the Mac to switch graphic cards.

    MB | Mid-2007 | 13-inch | 2.16GHz Core 2 Duo | 2GB DDR2 | 120GB HDD | GMA 950 | White
    MBP | Late-2008 | 15-inch | 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo | 4GB DDR3 | 250GB HDD | 9400M + 9600M GT w/ 256MB GDDR3 | Unibody
