    Hey I have heard that one can update the graphics on the white Mac Books GMA X3100.

    Please can someone let me know how and what sort of improvements the update makes.

    Thanks for your time. Andy

    The hardware cannot be upgraded and you should have the latest OS X drivers if you don't have any more software updates to complete.

    I didn't mean the hardware as such. Some people are saying that there is a beta driver for the GMA X3100 - I was wondering how to get hold of this?

    Unfortunately, new GMA X3100 drivers are for Windows XP and Vista only. I just installed the latest driver for my WinXP partition. The new driver is great, much faster than the one provided in the Leopard DVD. Hopefully, Intel will publish new drivers for OS X.

    Regards.

    Hi, do you have a link to these drivers, I have only recently installed Windows and could do with the better graphics. Cheers:p

    You can probably get it on the Intel website.
