Only a few days after the announcement of the new MacBook Pro lineup, Apple has released a software update for the laptops. The update improves high-end graphics performance, particularly as it relates to resource-intensive video and gaming. The update also fixes a handful of minor unspecified bugs. The hefty update is recommended for all 15- and 17-inch mid 2010 MacBook Pros, and is available via Software Update or the Apple Support Downloads page. (Free, 258.32 MB)
