And the big issue is what, exactly?
U watch mkvs on your mac?
Only affects 13" mbp with integrated gpu.
That's what I was trying to figure out.
I think he is looking for a thank you from everyone on the board who ever might have though about buying a 13 inch mbp for saving them from buying it.
The 13" isn't just about watching movies!
I watch movies quite a lot on mine in 720p and haven't noticed this ONCE??
I FEEL ROBBED BY APPLE!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR OPENING MY EYES TO THIS FACT.
in all seriousness though, if one frame is repeated every 40 seconds, and there is 24 frames in a second.. whats the big deal?
That's actually really annoying if you're a movie buff. Thanks for the heads-up.
its not that bad!
Would this actually be noticeable to the average person? Especially on a 13" screen? I'm doubtful.
Um, I watched a movie the other day and it was fine.
I happen to lurve this 13" Macbook Pro.
but if one was a movie buff, wouldn't they be watching films on a large screen TV or in a cinema?
all these comments made me laugh
I'm a big apple fan myself(got ipod, ipad and a mbp)
how many of you guys watch movies on your macs?
I do and 4me the issue on new basemodel is a deal breaker
macbook pro(big Plex fan myself) + large tv screen + good speakers with an amp =awesome home cinema
So approx. once every 40 seconds, you'll notice a slight judder, IF the scene playing at that moment happens to involve a lot of panning. If not, you may not notice this at all. Sounds catastrophic.
... + separate blu-ray player = uber-awesome!
Yep, I totally base my buying decisions on a tiny technical obscurity that only affects movies in extremely specific circumstances and only matters if you've shelled out the $$$ for a TV that can natively do 23.976fps instead of upscaling to 60hz like the LCD in the MBP will. Sure I spend 8+ hours a day on it *coding*, but movies are TOTALLY the most important part!
Well I happen to love my new MBP, but thanks for trying to rain on my parade.
1. What sort of jitter are we talking about? Cant it even be seen - i'd like to see this in action...
2. Does it go for Blu-Ray movies only?
I don't buy mbp primarily to watch movie on it. I got 47" TV for that.
This glitch will probably hold 0.00001% of the people back from buying the 13"
Very interesting - note that there is a software fix that improves it (but does not fix it). Definitely worth installing.
Not sure if that is a driver update or something else?
I'm with you. On any internet product forum there's always going to be one that finds some absolutely inane reason for justifying not purchasing something and the OP is ours
Well, using an ancient gpu is the real issue.
Humans blink more often than every 40 seconds. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blink#Adults
Get yourself in sync with your MBP; problem solved.
Sure bud. An on-core gpu on a Sandy Bridge processor is so couple of months ago.
