    Hi everyone, I just got my new Macbook pro this morning and transferring all my music and pictures from external hard drive to this computer. I am wondering that can I switch the graphic card while I am copying the files?:rolleyes:

    Uhh....if you mean can you switch to "High Performance" then no, it requires a restart and this will interrupt your file transfer.

    Why the "rollseyes"?

    No, switching the graphics card involves logging out.

    It will still stop your file transfer.

    Hopefully this can be switched on the fly with Snow Leopard, but there is snow such luck with Leopard;)
