Hi there, Noob here. My Macbook Pro 2011 running El Capitan gave up so I baked the board and it worked again. I installed gfxCardStatus and selected 'better battery life' in 'energy saver' and now when I boot it up, gfxCardStatus always shows that the integrated Intel Graphics 3000 is being used. I can then select use 'integrated only' in gfxCardStatus. I'm no programmer and find the the programming on this forum to get the Mac to always boot to ingegrated a bit intimidating. Is it ok to run it as I am now with energy saver and gfxCardStatus or is the programming recommended?
