Does it have Intel integrated graphics as well, besides the ATI Radeon? Can you turn it off in the BIOS (or the ATI Radeon)?




Yes and yes: yay! you just follow any retail method for ML installation and remember to keep your Intel HD or ATI Radeon turned off.


Yes and no: if you're lucky, you'll be able to use an external monitor. If not, forget about OSX in this laptop.


No and ... : Just go for it, just like "Yes and Yes".


Best regards!
