Apple releases update for new 15-, 17-inch MacBook Pros

If you're already the proud owner of one of the brand new 15- or 17-inch MacBook Pros that were released on Tuesday, we've got some news for you. Fire up Software Update, and you'll be greeted with your very first patch. Talk about efficient.

MacBook Pro Software Update 1.3 is an update for all mid 2010 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pros that addresses issues with the graphics hardware. In the support documentation's own words, this patch “contains improvements for graphics stability for high-performance video and gaming applications” and fixes a few bugs.

This update weighs in at a hefty 258.32 MB and requires Mac OS X 10.6.3, the very same version of Mac OS X that these MacBook Pros ship with. This update is short on further details, but any update that contains “various bug fixes” is worth a download in our book.
