An investigative news article was posted just today concerning the NVidia 9400M and 9600M chips in the new Macbook and Macbook Pro: http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer...le-macbook-pros-have-nvidia-bad-bump-material The short summary is that Macbook owners with the 9400M chip are pretty safe from a particular hardware fault that Nvidia had on their previous notebook graphic chips. However, after taking apart the 9600M from a Macbook Pro Aluminum and analyzing it with an electron microscope, it has the same problem the faulty chips from Nvidia had before. Looks like Nvidia might have to be sued again to get them to stop lying to their partners, investors, etc. I'd be quite wary of purchasing a Pro until this issue gets resolved. Looks like a problem that can't easily be fixed without replacing the board. Thank goodness the Macbook doesn't have the same problem. EDIT: According to mosx Nvidia wasn't actually fined in the courts. The original inquirer article used the words "Nvidia took a $200 million charge" which I read wrong as a court charge.
