    Hei
    I got my Retina about week ago and I just love it. I use gfx Card Status to see which card is in use and I have found out that whenever Skype is opened it uses 650m even if I don't do anything and if chose Integrated only it works ok as long as I start video chatting then it's just blank screen, if I chose 650m it works ok. Is there a way to do Skype calls with integrated gpu?

    I have noticed the exact same thing, is skype video chat so much graphic intense?

    It does it on all MacBook Pros with dedicated GPU.
    Mine goes to the 6750M as well.
    Apparently, Skype is graphic intensive.

    Im pretty sure you can use the gfxcardstatus to "force" to use integrated only.
