    I recently bought an HD camera and I've done some editing on my MBP which caused the fans to spin like crazy. The same goes for watching YouTube videos in HD. I thought this was because of Lion, since I never had any issues with Snow Leopard. Nevertheless, I was doing some reading on graphics cards when I came across this help article from Apple:

    The thing that bugs me is this sentence
    If I follow the instructions, I get this:

    As you can see, there is no mention of an Intel graphics card. If I click Support and then Specifications, I get this article that also says I should have an Intel HD graphics card:

    Does anyone know what is going on? Did Apple forget my graphics card?

    Click the 'Overview' tab, click on 'System Report' then select 'Graphics/Displays'.

    It should be listed there.

    Thanks, it is listed there. So the window I got to only shows the graphics card in use?
