    tells you weather my rMBP is using dedicated or integrated graphics, displays a notification too if you choose.

    very useful for me as i run SETI@Home, which give my computer's idle time to scientific research, I've been using this since 2004. also, having a dedicated gpu greatly decreases the processing time required. :)

    Glad you finally found it, as it's been discussed in countless threads for at least a couple years and also is recommended in the Apple Notebook Battery FAQ.

    Nice! Now I can lock the IGP in. No more GPU firing up just to run a youtube vid.
