    Hey, I have a 15 inch aluminum macbook pro, Snow Leopard and recent updates all installed, but i noticed something on my friends 13 inch macbook pro that mine doesn't do.
    On my friends, when you press the screen dim/bright button (F1, F2), its a gradual transistion, but on mine it just jumps down a notch.
    For example, when you hold down the dim button on my friends MBP, it the screen dims in a similar way as to when you put your finger over the iSight camera, it fades to a dimmer screen. On mine, it jumps down each brightness level
    Any help would be appreciated, thanks

    I've never noticed, but maybe it's only gradual on the newer models because of their LED back-lighting?

    Maybe your friend has a software called Shades installed on her/his Mac, which allows "better and more gradual" control over the brightness of the display.

    I installed it on my iMac and it seemed to frack up my system.
