Apple Releases Fix For 17″ MacBook Pros With Graphics Issues

If you’ve got one of the 17″ MacBook Pros that has the Nvidia 9600M graphics chipset that has been known to be problematic, then run to Software Update as fast as you can. Apple has released a update that apparently fixes this issue:

This firmware update is recommended for all 17-inch MacBook Pro (Early 2009) users and addresses the appearance of vertical lines or distorted graphics on the notebook display.

Wow! There’s more detail in that one sentence than I’m used to seeing from Apple. I guess they couldn’t keep saying that their updates contain “bug fixes” without bloggers like me writing about how craptastic that is. In any case, we’ll see if fixes the issues with the 9600M in these notebooks. I’ll be monitoring the Apple Discussion Boards for that info.
