    Hey all

    I am in lecture and I was wondering if the MBP has a microphone to record audio, ex. speaking teacher lol. I can't seem to find any program that relates to using a mic. Any help thanks!

    The mic is under the left speaker grill, and you control settings under the Sound Preference Pane. You can use QuickTime Pro to record (not sure about regular QT) or download Audacity.

    the mic on the MBP, while surprisingly sensitive, isnt directional so recording a lecture wont be easy unless you're sitting in the front.

    I third this. I don't personally use Audacity for lecture recording, but it free and useful to have.
