    Well i am really new to MacbookPro
    I have been a user of Windows for almost 10 years but Now..
    Just got my hands on 13inch MacbookPro :)

    Lately i was using my Sony Viao to watch Movies ( Connecting Through HDMI to 45 inch Tv )
    Now MacbookPro Dont have HDMI.

    Since i have to watch movie on MacbookPro
    the movie is somehow DARK .... Only when i Increase the Brightness to Fullest the picture seems to be Good.

    I am using VLC player.

    anyone wanna suggest .. as when i use to watch on my SONY (17 inch ) ... The picture was great .

    I have been using windows for about that long as well and plan to switch to the mbp 13 as well. How do you seem to like it so far? Also, if you don't mind me asking, which mpb 13 did you get and and what do you mainly use your computer for?

    I am a new MBP user. I have been a Windows PC user for MANY years. I wanted to learn the Mac because I've so many wonderful things about them. I was told MacRumors would be a great source of information for me if I have questions.

    I plan to use my Mac when I travel. Uses will include gaming (WoW), watching video (DVD's, youtube, etc), surfing, emailing, eventually MS Office, and possibly AutoCAD; see "signature" for my MBP specs. Like J.li, I noticed DVD's are very dark. Even maxing out the brightness via the F2 button on my keyboard does not make the picture bright enough to see what is happening. Is there a way to make the images brighter/lighter so I can see what is happening in the dark moments found on DVD's? Is there another application I should use to watch DVD's that will allow me more options for the display?
