New Energy Saver now more Energy Saving

I got to lay hands on a new precision unibody MacBook tonight at the WAMUG meeting thanks to Daniel Kerr from MacWizardry. It’s a solid little beasty, built like the proverbial brick chickenhouse. Still not sure about gloss though.

Anyway, I noticed that the incandescent lightbulb icon for the Energy Saver preference pane has now been replaced with a compact flourescent lightbulb icon 🙂 Now we just have to wait for the LED lightbulb icon.

Roughlydrafted has a picture of the new icon and also notes that the new MacBook’s Nvidia 9300M chipset has hardware acceleration for H.264 that could be enabled via a plugin QuickTime codec.
