    Update: A portion of this article was removed. I noted that Apple might be able to raise an excuse about differences in how the GeForce 8600M and 9400/9600M handle PureVideo.

    NVIDIA has cleared the air on this. Both the 8600M in the old MacBook Pro, and the 9400/9600M used in the new MacBooks use the same PureVideo HD technology.

    “Apple will … make you wait for Snow Leopard. I have no doubt that MacBook Pro owners will get PureVideo H.264 decoding in that release.” – so, did we? Did you ever perfect that hack? Cheers for the content.. 🙂

    I was given reassurances that Snow Leopard would fall in line with the Puma (Mac OS X 10.1) upgrade pricing. As such, I didn’t really focus on it. $29 is a fair price for all the other features, and as long as PureVideo is enabled across-the-board, my real only complaint is Apple’s typical perpetual holding out on features that are in the can.
