    I was just audio chatting with someone for the first time on my MacBook with iChat and I noticed that audio only came out of the right speaker. I was very pleased by this since my Powerbook constantly had feedback since the left speaker is essentially touching the microphone. In this conversation I had no feedback at all. And yes, both speakers work just fine and I am currently listening to music through both of them, I have not changed sound output settings. Is this just a weird thing on mine, or are others doing the same? Hey, while we're at it, how do I search in the forum to find multiple words in the SAME thread? I often try searching for two words, but it shows me all posts that have at least only one of the words. I'm not a skilled MR searcher :)

    This is a new feature with the MacBook Pros. :)

    Mine has it, as do all MBP's.

    EDIT: Couldn't tell you about the latter question.

    I know this is not directly related to the topic, but are the speakers better in the MBP than the PB? And have Apple thought of branded speakers in their laptops and iMacs? HP has either Altec Lansing or JBL in their notebooks, and these speakers rock.:cool:

    I don't think they are branded. They are slightly better than the speakers on my old PowerBook G4 12-inch from 2004. They are still laptop speakers, nothing more, but do a reasonabe job.

    BTW mine also has this feature when using the speakers with the microphone, but it's cool cause if I plug in headphones then it uses both sids not just one (e.g. they actually thought about things before they just turned it onto right side only - I like that).
