    Doesn't it have issues because it is integrated graphics, and couldn't Apple just be covering for itself?
    We all know integrated graphics are not great for graphic intensive stuff.

    In other words, the drivers for the x3100 suck.

    Not a big deal. Apple will issue an update sooner or later.

    This is hardly surprising. ...New hardware + new software = problems

    ...They'll be fixed soon, no doubt.

    It's too vague to be important. From what I've read about X3100, graphics drivers are critical to exploiting their potential. If this tech note means they recognize the current drivers aren't great and are working on it, then it's news. If they're just warning buyers not to expect too much out of an onboard graphics chip, that's pretty old news.

    Interesting that Apple can admit to this little problem, and these macs have not even been out a week. Yet they are strangely tight lipped on the issue of the freezing iMac calamity.

    Seriously Apple, hire some more quality control people. The ones they have don't seem to be doing their Jobs of late. The last three Mac updates have had serious graphics issues.
