Sorry that I'm asking so many questions but I am trying to just learn how to use and other general information about my new MBP. I always search first but if I can't find anything, I post up about it. No better way to learn than to ask questions, right? Anyways, a few questions: What does everyone think about their MBP's (late 2008) DVD playback quality? Seems as mine is alright but if I turn off the energy savings options (the one for better quality) it should enable the dedicated graphics card for enhanced graphics. Thats what I gathered from searching atleast. I don't really notice a huge difference though in watching a DVD. Maybe I wouldn't though, which brings me to my next question..... How do I know when the two cards are working and what exactly is the advantage to the dedicated card on the Pros? Is it really just for enhanced graphics overall (ie: watching DVD's, gaming) or are there other main advantages? My last question: When I started watching my first DVD, I was trying to pause the movie in a dark spot in the very beginning so I could check for dead/stuck pixels. When I was doing that I got some kind of error message but the movie kept playing and everything seemed fine. Ejected the movie and restarted but I never got that error message again. I know its not a lot to go on and I'm not exactly sure what it said but I was wondering if it is normal to sometimes get random error messages? I'm coming from a PC so I'm used to getting them and they not mean a whole lot. I know I'm probably just being paranoid but I like to learn as much as I can about my first new Mac. Great computer so far. I love it. Thanks for any input.
