I have a 2011 13" macbook pro. I do not have apple care. I don't use this laptop very often. But I notice the dashboard dictionary does not work. I don't believe it ever has. It's not a big thing but it bugs me it does not work. I took it to the computer store at the university where I bought it, and the tech there hooked it up, and it worked. He though it had to be on line to work. I don't think so as the one on my old G4 desk top works on line or off. Anyway, I came back home got on line and, again, it didn't work. It's there on the desktop, and you can type in a word, but the drop down banner with the definition does not drop down. What is going on? The Dictionary app in the Finder menu works fine.
